Noah! And Sufficient is your Lord as an All-Knower and All-Beholder of the sins of His
slaves.” [17:16, 17]
Together with these verses, there were others revealed to show the Muslims the rules and items of
the civilization upon which they could erect their Muslim community, and foreshadowing their
ownership of a piece of land, exercising full freedom over it and establishing a coherent society
around whose axis the whole humanity would rotate. Those verses in reality implied better
prospects for the Prophet (Peace be upon him) comprising a secure shelter to settle in, and
headquarters safe enough to empower and embolden him to communicate his Message to all the
world at large; that was in fact the inner secret of that blessed journey. For this very wisdom and
the like we deem it appropriate to suggest that ‘the Night Journey’ took place either before the First
Pledge of ‘Aqabah or between the two; after all, Allâh knows best.
