WHAT HAPPENED ON THE NIGHT OF MIRAJ / NIGHT JOURNEY



I have been reading with great pleasure a new book out (Feb 2014) by Lesley Hazleton titled "The First Muslim." This is a greatly researched book and she did look at the life of the most important figure in human history from a very fresh out of the box perspective. I say out of the box because she wasn't biased through the lens of religious affiliation, biasedness or over piety that we often see in other biographical account. And because she had a fresh eyes and mind, she could also give her very important commentary on various incidents of the Prophet which both Non-Muslim and Muslims particular will appreciate. I have not read the life of the Prophet with so much freshness than any other book before. Yes other biography may have things more detailed, taking into account both reliable and not so reliable sources, but this work of author Lesley Hazleton stands out more uniquely because she not only relied on authentic sources but also pointed out gaps in other traditional stories that generally get circulated about the life o the Prophet among the pious Muslims.

The description of the experience of the Night Journey is 'a concretization of what cannot be made concrete - a translation of the metapysical into the physical,' argues the author and I think thats her genius to come to appreciate that.

On the blessed occasion of Mi'raj, let me share the part from Lesley Hazleton's book and I hope you will come to enjoy them.

Every distraction is a veil and every veil is responsible for us being cut off from the Real. In the process of veiling, we first get cut off from our own real self, our heart and soul gets veiled and the joy within dies slowly as we become more and more distracted. Being joyless from within we look for cheap entertainment, intoxication, ten thousand more distractions outside. It goes on and on and feed back into the system. More distractions make us more joyless within, creates more void inside and mindlessly we look to fill that void with more distractions. Its a vicious cycle.
