about

Mi’raj is an exploration of Faith’s interjection with its old foe, Doubt.

Rooted in the contemporary politics of war and global terrorism, the play uses the Isra and Mi’raj incident from the life of Prophet Mohammed to begin a conversation about the boundaries of faith in an increasingly polarized world. According to Islamic belief, Al Isra wal-Mi’raj (The Journey to Ascension) is a journey undertaken by the Prophet in a single night. Guided by Buraq, the white winged steed, he is believed to have met prophets from the past as he ascended the seven levels of heaven, eventually meeting God in Paradise. Young Tariq Rizvi, the protagonist of the play, is on a journey of his own as he struggles to understand the multiplicity of truth.

He finds himself caught in a tangled reality in faraway Turkey and Iraq where he faces a collision of beliefs when his childhood friend and companion on this journey, Ijaz Basheer, raises questions about the word of God and the cost of belief.
