Ibn Kathir in his al-Sira al-Nabawiyyah mentions that a group of Muslims reneged after the Messenger (saw) told people about his night journey to the heavens (al-isra wa al-miraj):

Al-Hasan stated, in his hadith, "And then the Messenger of God (saw) departed for Mecca and set about telling Quraysh of all that happened. He recounted most of the people disbelieved him and that one group reneged after having previously accepted Islam... And on that subject God revealed, 'And we rendered the visions we showed you nothing but a way of testing people...' (Qur'an al-Isra; 27:60)" (Vol. 2, p. 63)
