Prayer and Meditation for the Night of Ascension

Please join us this Saturday evening to observe Laylatul Isra wal-Mi'raj, the Holy Night of Ascension, in which the Prophet Muhammad (saws) ascended to the Divine Presence of God with the Archangel Gabriel upon the heavenly steed known as Buraq.


This powerful event not only demonstrates the divine potential of the human heart, but provides a powerful and blessed opportunity to connect with the Divine Presence of Allah Almighty through the light and way of the Prophet (saws), which is based in the transcendence of the lower self and ego-consciousness.

Joining us will be Habib Ahmad al-Jifri, who is visiting from the holy city of Mecca, and brings with himself its light and blessings.

Habibi Ahmad comes directly from the family of the Prophet (saws) himself and from a long line of illuminated saints, guides and teachers, who have over the millennia shared the peaceful way and teachings of Islam throughout the world, bringing hundreds of millions to the path of light and goodness.

This will be a powerful night of prayer, meditation, association and spiritual practice. You want to be there!

Tentative program schedule is as follows:

7:30pm — Arrivals 
8:00pm — Maghrib Prayer 
8:30pm — Nasheed led by Abdullah Haroon
9:00pm — Stories on the Ascension led by Habib Ahmad al-Jifri

We sincerely look forward to having your light and energy with us on this blessed and holy night. No experience with Islam or Spirtuality is necessary, all are welcome!
