Question

Assalamu Alaikum, Is there any authentic narration stating that during isra wal mehraj, prophet mohammed went to medina and prayed there, then went to mount sinai and prayed there, then went to birthplace of jesus and prayed there, later went to jerusalem. thanks.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds.  I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

The authentic Sunnah from the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) clarifies the details of this journey and this is mentioned in Fatwa 85636, so please refer to it.

We have not come across any Hadeeth in the reference books that we have at hand despite their abundance, which states that during this journey the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) passed by the places that you mentioned in the question.

Allaah Knows best.
