Overview

Islamic Heritage Private Tour

Muslims consider Jerusalem to be one of the three holy cities, along with Mecca and Medina. In Jerusalem, Islam is the second most important and the number of believers. The history of Islamic pilgrimage is deeply rooted in history. Starting from the time of the conquest of the “Land of the Prophets” by the second righteous caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab in the 7th century.

The flourishing of Muslim pilgrimage began in the early Middle Ages, when huge, magnificent caravans from Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Asia Minor gathered in the city of El-Quds, sacred to all monotheistic religions, Jerusalem, in the Land of the Prophets.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque is located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, it is the third shrine of Islam after the Kaaba (Al-Haram Mosque) in Mecca and the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina. The Al-Aqsa Mosque was the first qibla in Islam before being moved to Mecca. This place is associated with the night journey of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and His Ascension.

At this place, Muhammad met the prophets sent before him by Ibrahim, Musa and Isa and prayed as an imam. After the prayer, the angels cut Muhammad’s chest and washed his heart. And then he ascended to heaven on the stairs of angels and visited the seven heavens, after which he appeared before Allah, who revealed to Muhammad the rules of Muslim prayer.
