There are two school of thought on Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) visit to the Heavens (sky) and meet God. One school says
- This happened in real (this is more authentic).
- This was shown to the prophet in a dream only
My question is now that we know Earth is round, there are no 7 skies, there is no air above certain altitude where you can breath, you cannot survive without space suite and oxygen and you cannot survive at -273C temperature and there were no witnesses. + Prophet Muhammad never said anything that would have proved the visit otherwise. For example he never pointed that the earth was round, he never said anything about the stars, the moon. This would mean, in plain scientific terms, this was just an imagination and nothing close to reality. Muslims often explain things in Quran logically and scientifically. If I go by logic, this event by all means says it is false. But it is an important event. That is when 5 prayers/day were imposed. How can I convince myself that this happened in real, while all the odds are against it. Did it happen in real?
