    yeah we paint our selves green,and our faces white,we set fire and dance around it, *LOL*actully I dont do anything on lilat al miraj,We only have holiday wooooooooooohoooooo,no school,but there is no special prayer or something like that,anybody who tells you so is fabricating something

    I was kidding about the painting and the fire and the dancing thingie
    And the holiday is not a must,it's just from the lovley ministry of education here

    The quran was revealed way before that. It's the night god got made prayers wajib,obligatory. If it's an essay just say they read quran and pray (I guess some do)

    There are no particular festivities or customs in general, however Muslims tend to read and reflect upon the story of the prophet's (pbuh) ascension to God where the duty of the daily prayer (of which there are five) was revealed to him. He is also believed to have met his predecessors including Jesus, Moses and Abraham (pbut). The journey itself is known as Al-Miraj (the night journey). The story is usually discussed in a mosque although there is no obligation to do so.

    Some countries have a public holiday.
