You can find more information on the ocassion of Isra and Mi’raj below in an excerpt from the Isra and Mi’raj Wikipedia article.

The Isra and Mi’raj (Arabic: الإسراء والمعراج‎, al-’Isrā’ wal-Mi‘rāj), are the two parts of a Night Journey or Shab-e-Mi’raj that, according to Islamic tradition, the prophet of Islam, Muhammad took during a single night around the year 621. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey. and other details come from the Hadith, supplemental writings about the life of Muhammad. In the journey,Prophet Muhammad travels on the steed Buraq to “the farthest mosque” where he leads other prophets in prayer. He then ascends to heaven where he speaks to God, who gives Muhammad instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayer. According to traditions, the journey is associated with the Lailat al Mi’raj, as one of the most significant events in the Islamic calendar.
