In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Our Prophet (PBH), through the very first revelation of the Quran, was ordered:
“Recite in the name of your Fosterer…” (Chapter 96: Verse 1) and the name of his and our Fosterer is Allah (SWT), as is evident from the very first verse of the first chapter of the Quran:
“Praise is due only for Allah (SWT), the Fosterer of the worlds”. (Chapter 1: Verse 1)
In view of this order of Allah (SWT), we should recite/read before starting the recitation or reading of the Holy Quran which is a part of the Quran, occurring at the beginning of 113 out of 114 chapters of the Quran and also as part of verse No. 30 of chapter 27 of the Quran. Through Chapter 16: Verse 98, Allah Taala further orders:
“So when you recite/read the Quran, seek the protection of Allah from the accursed devil”.
This means that we are required to pray; (Aoozu Billahi min Ash shaitaanir Rajeem) meaning: “I seek the protection of Allah from the accursed devil”, even before reciting or reading: (Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem)

Shuru Allah ke naam se jo hum per taras kha ker faida pahunchane wala hai

Glorified be He Who made His servant travel on a night from the Masjid-il-Haram (Kaaba) to the Masjid-il-Aqsa (in Jerusalam) the neighborhood of which We have blessed, that We might show him (some) of Our signs {1}. He is certainly the Hearing, the Seeing.
This verse and Verse: 60 probably refer to the event of Mairaj. The summary of the details given by Bukhari and Muslim are: –

1. Jibreel (PBH) opened the chest of Prophet Muhammed (PBH), removed and washed his heart to free it from evil and rejoined the chest after replacing the heart.

2. He was then carried on ‘Burraq’ (Barq means light) from Kaaba in Makkah to Masjid – i – Aqsa in Jerusalem where he offered Salat (worship).

3. He was then taken beyond the regions of the earth. On the 1st level of the sky he met Adam (PBH), on the 2nd Isa and Yahya (PBH), on the 3rd Yusuf (PBH), on the 4th Idris (PBH), on the 5th Harun (PBH), on the 6th Musa (PBH), and on the 7th level Ibrahim (PBH), Finally he received the order making Salat obligatory on every Muslim five times a day and returned to the place on earth from where he was taken. All this happened in a very short time. Removal and replacement of heart, space travel at high speed should not surprise us because today these are common things. When man, created by Allah (SWT), can do these things, then it must be much more easy for his Creator Allah (SWT).
