Today 29th June 2011 is "Isra Mi'raj Nabi Muhammad" here in Indonesia (and the world over, presumably) and we are enjoying a designated national holiday.
From wiki: "The Isra and Mi'raj are the two parts of a Night Journey that, according to Islamic tradition, the Islamic prophet Muhammad took during a single night around the year 621. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey. A brief sketch of the story is in sura (chapter) 17 Al-Isra of the Qur'an, and other details come from the Hadith, supplemental writings about the life of Muhammad. In the journey, Muhammad travels on the steed Buraq to "the farthest mosque" where he leads other prophets in prayer. He then ascends to heaven where he speaks to God, who gives Muhammad instructions to take back to the faithful on Earth about the number of times to offer prayers each day. According to traditions, the Journey is associated with the Lailat al Miraj, as one of the most significant events in the Islamic calendar."
Best wishes to any Muslim members of RHP and who might look at [or contribute to] these forums from time to time.
