Muslim pilgrimage in Sacred Land

“Glory to The one who made his Lord travel from the sacred mosque to the furthest mosque that we blessed all around, in order to make him discover some of our signs! God is truth, the audient and the perspicacious” (Quran S17/V1)

Maslid Al Aqsa refers to the complex of Muslim buildings in Jerusalem. The Al-Aqsa Mosque, Haram es Sherif, by the Dome of the rock, the Mosque of Burak and other more modest structures are part of it.

It is considered as the third sacred place of Islam.

According to the Islamic tradition, the Mosque Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem is the place from where Mahomet (blessings and salute for him) started the nocturnal travel (Al-Isra) on the Burak that led him from the Mecca to Al-Aqsa.

Mahomet (blessings and salute for him) tied the Buraq to the Western Wall, prayed on the Noble Sanctuary, then the angel Jibril (Gabriel) travelled with him to the heavens.

The pilgrimage to Al Quds ‘Al Qudus’ is the ultimate consecration for any Muslim person, right after the Hajj. A prayer in Jerusalem is worth one thousand prayers.

We will follow the marks of the different Muslim civilization: from the Umayades to Abassid, from the Fatimids to Seljuquims, without forgetting the Mamluks and Ottoman, they all have impacted the Sacred Land.
