REGARDING THE KANDIL (HOLY/BLESSED NIGHT)! OF MIRJ

Regarding the Kandil (Holy/Blessed Night)! of Mirj

Today is the 24th of Rajab 1442. As it is known, a widespread belief exists amongst the masses that the 27th night of Rajab is the Night of Isr and the Kandil (Holy/Blessed Night)! of Mirj. Many people from various nations who claim to follow Islm consider this night to be virtuous. Whereas, it is unknown when al-Isr wal Mirj happened.

وذكر بعض القصاص أن الإسراء كان في رجب. وقال: وذلك كذب
Some story-tellers mentioned that al-Isr occurred in Rajab. He said: This is a lie.[1]

وروى بإسناد لا يصح عن القاسم بن محمد: أن الإسراء بالنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كان في سابع وعشرين من رجب وانكر ذلك إبراهيم الحربي وغيره

It was narrated from al-Qsim bin Muhammad with a non-Sahh (unauthentic) chain that the Isr of the Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam occurred on the 27th of Rajab. This was rejected by Ibrhm al-Harb and others.[2]

As it is unknown when al-Isr wal Mirj occurred, there is no Ibdah specific for this night, in contrast to the actions of many modern-day Mushrikn who claim to follow Islm.


فَقَدْ سُئِلَ شَيْخُ الْإِسْلَامِ ابْنُ تَيْمِيَّةَ رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ
فَكَيْفَ وَلَمْ يَقُمْ دَلِيلٌ مَعْلُومٌ لَا عَلَى شَهْرِهَا وَلَا عَلَى عَشْرِهَا وَلَا عَلَى عَيْنِهَا، بَلِ النُّقُولُ فِي ذَلِكَ مُنْقَطِعَةٌ مُخْتَلِفَةٌ لَيْسَ فِيهَا مَا يُقْطَعُ بِهِ، وَلَا شُرِعَ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ تَخْصِيصُ اللَّيْلَةِ الَّتِي يُظَنُّ أَنَّهَا لَيْلَةُ الْإِسْرَاءِ بِقِيَامٍ وَلَا غَيْرِهِ

Shaykhul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullh was asked (about Laylatul Qadr and the Night of al-Isr/Kandil of Mirj) ()

How can this be, while no known evidence has been established regarding the month, the ten days, nor the day the Night of al-Isr occurred on? Rather, the narrations regarding this are Munqati (there chains of narration are disconnected) and are contradictory (in wording); there is nothing absolute amongst them. Assigning the night which is thought to be the Night of al-Isr with Qiym (prayer) and other things is not legislated for the Muslimn.

With this means, we wanted to raise awareness with a few narrations from the scholars. Was Salm!
 1. Ibnu Hajar, Tabynul Ajab, Muassasatu Qurtubah, p. 23.
 
 2. Ibnu Rajab al-Hanbal, Latiful Marif, 121.
 
 3. Ibnul Qayyim, Zdul Mad, 1/57-58.
Shaykhul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullh said,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim. (Shaykhul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majmul Fatw, 13/235)
