Masjid Al-Aqsa

fkhateeb
A very nice model of Al-Aqsa Mosque or Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem. This is the site at which Prophet Muhammad led all the previous prophets in prayer. The origional mosque was built by the Khalifah (Islamic ruler) Omar in the 600s. The current buiding was built by Salah al-Deen after the Crusades. Due to its position on top of an artificial mound, it has been very suceptible to earthquakes, unilke its neighbor to the north, the Dome of the Rock, which is situated on the top of Mount Moriah and is immune to earthquakes. #AlAqsa #AlQuds #Aqsa #Bayt_alMadis #Haram_alSharif #Islam #Jerusalem #Masjid #Masjid_alAqsa #Mosque #Muslims #Prayer #Quds
