Place were the Buraq was tighted by Prophet Muhammed (Pbuh) on the night of Miraj.

The night journey of Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) from Makkah to Jerusalem and his ascension to the seventh Heaven.

Al-Buraq is the creature which Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) used to ascend to the seventh heaven.

The journey of Al-Israa and Al-Miraj is of a highly symbolic nature. After prophet Muhammad (SAWS) circumambulated Al-Ka'ba, he found al-Buraq[8].

It was going to be his means of transportation at first from the Holy mosque to the Aqsa mosque.

Anas Ibn-Malik provides a description of Al-Buraq, 'Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said, "I was brought al-Buraq Who is an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place his hoof a distance equal to the range of his vision."

From this Hadith we learn the degree of faith of the prophet's companions who believed in such an incident that is beyond human comprehension in a time when even modern means of transport like trains and planes had not yet been invented.

Moreover, Allah (SWT) used al-Buraq to challenge and remind us that His capability and power shall always surpass our knowledge no matter how far we reach in science and technology until the Day of Judgment.

So never ever, boast about before The Ever-Powerful Allah (SWT).
