The name ‘Masjid al-Aqsa’ translates as ‘the farthest mosque’ and is the third most holy place in Islam. It was here that in around 621 CE the Prophet Muhammed(PBUH.)came on the night journey from Makkah riding on the Buraq.
Masjid al-Aqsa is no ordinary masjid. The Prophet (PBUH) dedicated a great deal of his life nurturing the Sahabah (Companions) to appreciate the excellent qualities of Masjid al-Aqsa. Some of the reasons why Masjid al-Aqsa should form an important aspect of a believer’s dedication is that it is:
The first qiblah for Muslims.
The station of al-Isra and al-Mi’raj.
The second house of Allah built on earth.
The place where hundreds of Messengers of Allah (swt) are buried.
The place where many Sahabah are buried.
A place where miracles were shown by Allah’s will.
A place which Allah (SWT) Himself calls a ‘blessed place’.
Referred to directly and indirectly, 70 times in the Quran.
The place where angels have descended with Allah’s message.
The only place on earth where all the Messengers of Allah prayed at the same time led by the Prophet Muhammed (SAW).
The only Masjid mentioned by name in the Quran apart from the Ka’bah.
