Al-Israa’ and Al-Mi`raj
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was fully aware that he could no longer rely on his own clan, the Hashimites, for any measure of firm support.
He felt himself alone in the whole world. His few followers were no match for the forces opposing him. Yet he firmly believed in the truth of the message he was preaching. His faith in God did not waver.
At this point something unusual happened to him.
