    My knowledge of Islam is pretty weak, but didn’t Muhammad ascend to heaven on a horse?

      As the story goes, in one night Muhammad rode a beast and visited several places including heaven. But he returned and later died and stayed dead. This is unlike Jesus who physically ascended to heaven and stayed there.
