Meaning of the baby name ISRA.

  

ISRA (إسراء).  Arabic name, meaning "night journey." 

    The words of the Quran which refer to the wonderful journey, be it in the spirit only or in the body, are these:  "Celebrated be the praises of Him who took His servant a journey by night from the Sacred Mosque (the Kaaba at Mecca) to the Remote Mosque (the Temple at Jerusalem), the precinct of which We have blessed, to show him of our signs! verily, He both hears and looks."  The event accordingly is known as either the Night Journey (Isra), or the Ascension (Miraj), the latter referring to the successive stages by which the Prophet mounts through the seven heavens to pass into the immediate presence of God, far beyond the limit to which even Gabriel was allowed to soar... (Muhammad and His Power, Johnstone, 1908)
