Exalted is He who took His Servant by night
from the Temple of Mecca (al-Masjid al-Haram) to the Temple of Jerusalem (al-Masjid al- Aqsa), whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him the Divine Signs.
Indeed, the Divine One is the Ever Hearing, the Ever Seeing.
~ The Qur'an 17:1
At the Lote Tree of the Utmost Boundary, near it is the Garden of Refuge -
When there covered the Lote Tree that which covered [it].
The sight [of the Prophet] did not swerve, nor did it transgress [its limit].
He certainly saw of the greatest and magnificent Divine Signs of his Lord.
~ The Qur'an 53:14-18
Success in the revolutionary struggle are not because of our planning, it is because we remain faithful to the mission come rain or come sun and then Allah takes us and charts the course of victory.
The lesson for us today is same as it was for them, all that you have to do is be strong. Do not give up, do no waver, regardless the price you have to pay.
Do not give up, do not waver. Allah will protect his servant whom Allah chooses to protect and and truth must eventually triumph over falsehood.
~ Shaykh Imran Hosein from the talk titled Strategic Importance of Isra wa Miraj
In a very important talk Sheikh Imran gives his detailed analysis of the importance of Isra and Miraj, the night-journey that Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wasalam) took. He gives the historical account with great insight and analysis as well as teachings from the Isra wa Miraj for the Later Age (akhiruzzaman). A highly recommended discourse for all.
