Firstly, 5 times prayer, secondly a guarantee of forgiveness for the humanity except the polythesists, last part of Sura Al Baqara, 14 point directives for the Bani Israelis which are as follows: to become sincere loyal to Allah and making no partnership to Allah, good behavior with parents, to ensure rights of the orphans and the travelers, not to waste and extravagance, not depriving the poor and destitute people, donating others, avoiding adultery and fornication, not to kill kids due to assumption of poverty, measuring items properly, fulfilling promises and avoid boastful manners. All these instructions are guidelines to build a welfare state. He urged everybody to be united to establish a just and welfare based Islamic society according to the instructions of Miraj incident.
Maulana Zainul Abedin said, Miraj is significant part of Islamic history. Prior to establising Islamic state in Madina, Prophet (pbuH) was guided with a relevant outline. The final prophet (peace be upon Him) implemented those outlines to make Madina a city, free from crimes and exploitations. He also called upon the people to become united for establishing a welfare state as per the outlines of Miraj.
