by The Albaani Blog


 

Questioner: Do you recall anything concerning the likely date of the Prophet’s night-journey [Israa] and his ascension [mi’raaj]?

Al-Albaani: There is nothing established concerning it.

Questioner: There’s nothing established until now?

Al-Albaani: Not at all.

Questioner: And the hadith which says that it was on the 18th of Rabee’ul-Awwal, what is its grading?

Al-Albaani: It’s a mu’addal narration.

Questioner: ‘Mu’addal’ meaning weak [da’eef]?

Al-Albaani: Yes.
