Description

From blurb:

Texts about the nocturnal journey of the Prophet Muhammad (Mi’raj) are abound in the Muslim world and outside. International attention has never been afforded to any version of the text in any language of the Indonesian archipelago. One old version of the text from the area, the Malay Hikayat Mi’raj Nabi Muhammad is presented here in Malay and English translation. The introductory chapters place the text in a wider context in Indonesian literature while the manuscript of the text (Cod. Or. Leiden 1713) is described in detail. The text and translation purport to enhance interest in this important text in the Muslim world as seem from the Malay/Indonesian perspective.
