Persian Angel - Lailat ul Miraj
Lailat-ul-Miraj means the night of Ascent. It marks the night when Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) attained a very high spiritual level and was spiritually transported to heaven. The Ascent took place on the 27th day of Rajab (seventh month of the Hijra or Muslim lunar calendar). This festival is also known as Lailatul-Miraj, Isra Miraj, Miraj al-Nabi, Isra, Me'raj and Laylat al-Mi'raj.
