Rajab 27 (12th year of Annunciation of Prophethood, 622 AD)
The Holy Prophet’s (d.) Accession or Acme
Lexically accession is the attainment of a position of a higher rank and the word acme is generally understood to mean the highest point of achievement or excellence.
Ascension of the Holy Prophet (d.), to sky or heaven (arsh-e azam) in full consciousness (it was not a dream) to have a glance of and talk with the Almighty Allah without any intermediary between him and Allah which took place on the night of 27th Rajab (seventh month of Hijri calendar) one year before exodus to the blessed city of Madina/ Medina. First of all he went from Masjidul Haram, Makkah to Masjidul Aqsa in Palestine, Divine city of Jerusalem. Then he personally became imam of all Prophets. Thereby he physically had a great journey of heavens where he observed the Paradise, the Hell and the highest seat of his exaltation on the Day of Judgment. Then he got in immediate presence of Allah far beyond where none, (not even Jibraeel) could ascend. This is the great miracle of Prophet Muhammad (d.).
Allah enjoined fifty salat/ namazes, but were reduced to five. Allah addressed him:
My words do not change. The reward for these five salat/ namazes shall be equal to the fifty.
