Miraj, Physical ascension to the Skies

[17:1] Glory be to Him Who made His servant (Muhammad) to go on a night from the Sacred Mosque to the remote mosque of which We have blessed the precincts, so that We may show to him some of Our signs; surely He is the Hearing, the Seeing.

[53:7] And he is in the highest part of the horizon.

[53:8] Then he (Muhammad) drew near, then he bowed

[53:9] So he was the measure of two bows or closer (to Allah) still.

[53:10] And He revealed to His servant what He revealed.

[53:11] The heart was not untrue in (making him see) what he saw.

[53:12] What! Do you then dispute with him as to what he (Muhammad) saw?

[53:13] And certainly he saw him (Jibreel) in another descent,

[53:14] At the farthest lote tree;

[53:15] Near which is the garden, the place to be resorted to.

[53:16] When that which covers covered the lote-tree;

[53:17] The eye did not turn aside, nor did it exceed the limit.

[53:18] Certainly he saw of the greatest signs of his Lord.
