"Masjidil Aqsa...'The Distant Mosque'" Temple Mount Tip by imran8852

Temple Mount, Jerusalem: 55 reviews and 111 photos


Masjidil Aqsa (The Distant Mosque) was the one that ranks very highly in sanctity after Masjidil Nabawi in Medina and Masjidil Haram in Mecca in the Islamic world not The Dome Of The Rock (also known as Qubah Al- Sakhrah Mosque). The incorrect information about The Dome of the Rock being highly sanctity than Masjidil Aqsa should be taken seriously by all Muslim. It's stated in the Al-Quran about Prophet Muhammad s.a.w journey to Masjidil Aqsa during Al- Isra’ Wal Me’raj
(Al-Isra' 17:1)

Directions: Old City Jerusalem

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
