The Night of the Mi'raj

a book.

juz read it.

by Zoe Ferraris.

" when Nouf ash-Shrawi, the sixteen years old daughter of a wealthy Saudi dynasty, disappears from her home in Jeddah just before her arranged marriages, desert Nayir is asked to bring her home.

but, when Nouf's battered body is found, Nayir feels compelled to uncover the disturbing truth, travelling away from the endless desert to the vast city of Jeddah,

where, most troubling of all, he finds himself having to work closely with Katya Hijazi, a forensic scientist. the further into investigation he goes, the more Nayir begin to question his loyalties :

to friends, faith, and culture."


the title of this novel is taken from an important event narrated in the Quran and Hadith, the oral tradition relating to the words and deeds of the our beloved prophet Muhammad.

a celebrated occasion in our religion,

the mi'raj is the second half of a miraculous night-time journey.

the mi'raj both physical and spiritual journey,

same goes to Nayir in Nouf's death.

thats why the author thought of "The Night of Mi'raj"
