CILEGON. Sunday (3/5), 13 beneficiaries of scholarship program (Anak Juara) from Cilegon participated in intensive mentoring program initiated by RZ.
In this opportunity, they listened to the interesting materials delivered by Ustadz Syafe’i such as the history of Prophet Muhammad and Isra and Miraj. Ustadz Syafe’i told that The Isra is the part of the journey of Muhammad from Mecca to Jerusalem. It began when Muhammad was in the Masjid al-Haram, and an archangel ,Gabriel, came to him, and brought Buraq, the traditional heavenly steed of the prophets.
In the Mi’raj Buraq took him to the heavens, where he toured the seven stages of heaven, and spoke with the earlier prophets such as Abraham (ʾIbrāhīm), Moses (Musa), John the Baptist (Yaḥyā ibn Zakarīyā), and Jesus (Isa). Muhammad was then taken to Sidrat al-Muntaha – a holy tree in the seventh heaven that Gabriel was not allowed to pass.
“I’m glad to listen to story of Isra and Miraj. That was amazing and wonderful,” Putri Ani, a beneficiary, said. ***
