Presenting our much awaited- Mi'raj- Special episode from the Second Golden Age series.
Throughout our journey to understand the Glorious scientific past of Islam, and the subsequent influence it had on Europe, we have emphasized the role of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) as being the source of the first International Scientific Revolution. And we echoed the timeless words of the great Indian philosopher of the last century Dr Maulana Fazlur Rahman Ansari that the Prophet (ﷺ) is the "Inaugurator of the Modern Scientific Age".
While study of the history of Modern science is sufficient to understand this. Today we want to explore the mystical dimensions of this statement. And it gets better....Believe us !
Did the Prophet (saw) Inaugurate the Scientific Revolution in his famous Ascension or Mi'raj?
Did He foresee the start of the Scientific Era as He ascended through the universes?
Why does the Prophet (ﷺ) meet Idris (as)? Who is Idris (as)? The answer may surprise you :)
