Helping the poor and going an extra mile to lift their spirirts is just another good deed that we must learn to follow. Shab-e-Miraj is the night when the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ascended to the highest levels of heavens, will be observed across the country with religious devotion and traditional fervor.
On Miraj night, the women devotees arrange special gatherings inside their homes for offering special prayers all the night, whereas males offer prayers in specially decorated mosques, homes for seeking the blessings of Allah and pray for the welfare of the entire nation and the Ummah.
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that it was the responsibility of the state to provide food and shelter to the poor.
This he stated while paying a surprise visit to a shelter home near Pirwadahi in Rawalpindi on the occasion of holy night of Shab-e-Miraj (PBUH). He inquired about the facilities from the people present at the shelter home and expressed satisfaction.

Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Media Affairs Yousaf Baig Mirza and Commissioner Islamabad Amir Ali Ahmed accompanied the Prime Minister during the visit.
The Prime Minister said since feeding the homeless and poor was the responsibility of the state, the PTI government, which very much had this basic point on its agenda, would do all to look after the poor people.
He said that more shelter homes would be established in the country, besides the expansion of existing ones, so as to facilitate maximum people.

During the gatherings, Islamic scholars highlight the importance of the day and its blessings. Different Islamic and socio-cultural organizations also arrange special prayers and Mahafil in mosques to seek blessings of the Almighty.
The Muslims every year on 27th Rajab-ul-Murajab (Islamic calendar) observe Shab-e-Miraj in which the Holy Prophet (PBUH) went on a special journey to meet Allah Almighty, crossing seven skies on the heavenly animal named al-Buraq.
The word Miraj is derived from the Arabic word Urooj, which means height, or ascension. During Miraj, the command for five daily prayers (Salat) was also given to the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
