"Know – may Allāh have mercy on me and you! – that each of the ḥadīths of the Companions [about the Isra' and Mi'raj] contains something the other does not. Therefore I consulted Allāh Almighty and concatenated them, rearranging the account into a single narrative so that it would be sweeter to attentive ears, and in order for its benefit to suit all occasions."
