The Malay <i>Hikayat Miʿrāj Nabi Muḥammad</i>, Leiden, Brill, 2014, 208p.

Edited and translated by Th.C. van der Meij, Leiden University / State Islamic University Jakarta and N. Lambooij, with the assistance of Oman Fathurahman

Texts about the nocturnal journey of the Prophet Muḥammad (Mi‘rāj) abound in the Muslim world and outside. International attention has never been afforded to any version of text in any language of the Indonesian archipelago. One old version of the text from the area, the Malay Hikayat Mir’āj Nabi Muḥammad is presented here in Malay and English translation. The introductory chapters place the text in a wider context in Indonesian literatures while the manuscript of the text (Cod.Or. Leiden 1713) is described in detail. The text and translation purport to enhance interest in this important text in the Muslim world as seen from the Malay/Indonesian perspective.
