So heaven is, then, on a planet is it? Would the planet need to be habitable in order for Allah to reside there? Maybe one of the "exoplanets" that keep being discovered is more to Allah's liking.Garudaman wrote:there's no habitable planet in our solar system except our earth, so there's no heaven in our solar system which is on the Isra' Mi'raj list.

Are the seven heavens planet based or are they free-floating in space? Do not overlook the belief that Muhammad travelled through these heavens on buraq. If the heavens are on habitable planets then so far as we know these habitable planets must be many light years away from us.
Can you explain how buraq propelled itself and Muhammad to a place many light years away in just one night? You must admit that the whole story is simply fiction made up by a deluded Muhammad.
Oh dear me, is that what you want to believe? I haven't done a full literature survey but I doubt Wikipedia needs correction - which they will surely accept if needed. Meanwhile,Garudaman wrote:no Buraq in Miraj, but Angel Gabriel.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BuraqWhile he was resting at the Kaaba, the angel Jibril (Gabriel) appeared to him followed by Buraq. Muhammad mounted Buraq, and in the company of Gabriel, they traveled to the "farthest mosque". The location of this mosque was not explicitly stated but is generally accepted to mean Al-Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount) in Jerusalem even though the Al-Asqa Mosque did not exist during Muhammad's lifetime, as he died in 632 and the Mosque was not constructed until 691 - after Jerusalem had fallen to the Rashidun Caliphate. At this location, he dismounted from Buraq, prayed, and mounted Buraq, who took him to the various heavens, to meet first the earlier prophets and then God (Allah). God instructed Muhammad to tell his followers that they were to offer prayers fifty times a day. At the urging of Moses (Musa), Muhammad returns to God and eventually reduces it to ten times, and then five times a day as this was the destiny of Muhammad and his people. Buraq then transported Muhammad back to Mecca.

I glanced through the link and assume that you think that the night journey was a dream. Am I correct or do you believe that Muhammad did make that physical journey?

Why does your logic prevent you from believing that Muhammad flew on Buraq from Mecca to Palestine?
sum wrote:Sum, it is logic that tells me that the Mi'raj (2nd part of travel) can not be physical journey.
