The latest video in our What Ismailis Believe series explains the significance of Mi'raj - the night journey of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny).

The folio depicts several angels, along with Buraq, the winged horse the holy Prophet is said to have ridden on Mi’raj.

This week, Ismailis around the world join many of their brothers and sisters in the wider Muslim Ummah in observing Mi‘raj.
