Al-Masjid Al Aqsa has a very special place in the hearts of the entire Muslim community due to its unique and rich history as a place of worship that is so closely intertwined with the lives of many of the Prophets of Islam, as well as for its unique status as a Masjid to which travel is recommended and in which reward is increased. It is a unique and blessed Mosque of vast size comprising 144,000 square meters in size (covering approximately 1/6th of the entire area of the Old City of Jerusalem) and with the capacity to accommodate the region of 500,000 worshippers.
Al-Masjid Al Aqsa had a unique place in the life of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) for many reasons. Firstly, as Al Masjid Al Aqsa was central to the lives of many of his fellow Prophets (as) with whom he shared an exceptional bond (as the Islam taught by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a continuation, completion and perfection of the religion and message of monotheism preached by all the prophets of Allah including Prophet Adam (as), Prophet Nuh (as), Prophet Ibrahim (as) (of whom Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) was a descendant through his son Ismaeel (as)), Prophet Musa (as), Prophet Daoud (as), Prophet Suleiman (as), and Prophet Isa (as) to name a few), Al Masjid Al Aqsa also by definition had a central place in his life and heart. In addition to this, up until the 2nd year of Hijra (623/624AD), the Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) turned and faced Al Masjid Al Aqsa as the direction for his prayers.
However, in his life, the most memorable reason for the importance of Al-Aqsa Mosque is that it was the place where Isra travelled at night, and it was the place from which he made his journey of Miraaj to the Heavens.
In the books of Hadith, we learn that the Prophet (saw) went to visit the Kaaba at night, and fell asleep. The Angel Jibreel (Gabriel) then awoke him and led him to a winged white beast named Buraq. It was on Buraq that the Prophet (SAWW) then made the journey to Jerusalem (a journey that would typically take 40 days) in just one momentous night. On reaching Jerusalem, the Prophet (saw) met and led all the previous Prophets in prayer at the site of Al Masjid Al Aqsa, and then embarked on the Miraaj to the Heavens.
The journey of Israa was such a momentous occasion that Allah revealed verses relating to this journey in the Holy Quran – “Glorified be He [Allah] Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from Al Masjid Al Haram to Al Masjid Al Aqsa, whose precincts We did bless, in order that We might show him some of Our Signs. Verily He is the All-Hearing, All-Seeing” [17:1].
After the death of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), the second khalif of Islam (who was also a close companion of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), Umar Ibn Al Khattab, entered and mercifully liberated Jerusalem (accompanied by 40,000 sahaba) on the invitation of the Christian leader at the time, without shedding blood and with the guarantee of protection for the lives, property and places of worship of others within the city who wished to remain there. As Umar’s personality and characteristics closely resembled and matched those of the liberator of Jerusalem foretold within scriptures, the people of the city were quick to embrace and accept his rule.
As mentioned earlier, when he arrived at the site of Al Masjid Al Aqsa in 637/638AD, he didn’t find a place of prayer but rather a plot of land that had been left barren and had been used as a rubbish tip by the Romans. Upon seeing this, he took the responsibility to remove the waste with his own hands and to rebuild Al Masjid Al Aqsa. Both the Christians and the Jews were pleased with the arrival of Umar and the Muslims, and with their just rule.
In 691/692AD, Abd’ al-Malik bin Marwan began constructing what is nowadays known as the Dome of the Rock on top of the rock which some belief was the place where Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) embarked on his Miraaj to the Heavens. However, it must be noted that regardless of whether the rock has importance, for this reason, its primary significance derives from it being within the boundaries of Al Masjid Al Aqsa and therefore part of Al Masjid Al Aqsa.
According to different hadiths, one can easily judge the importance of praying in masjid al Aqsa.
Abu Darda (RA) relates that the Prophet (saw) said:
“A prayer in Makkah (Ka’bah) is worth 1000,000 times (reward), a prayer in my Masjid (Madinah) is worth 1,000 times, and prayer in Al-Aqsa Sanctuary is worth 500 times more reward than anywhere else.” [Bayhaqi]
Abu Dharr (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
“We were discussing when we were with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), which is better, the Mosque of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) or Bayt al-Maqdis (Jerusalem). The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “One prayer in my mosque is better than four prayers offered there (in Bayt al-Maqdis), and what a good place of prayer it is. Soon there will come a time when, if a man has a piece of land the size of a horse’s rope from which he can see Bayt al-Maqdis, that will be better for him than the whole world.” [ al-Haakim, 4/509]
Anas Ibn Malik (RA) relates that the Prophet (SAWW) said:
“A man’s prayer in his house is equal (in reward) to 1 prayer; his prayer in the mosque of the tribes is equal to 25 prayers; his prayer in the mosque in which Friday prayer is offered is equal to 500 prayers; his prayer in Aqsa Mosque is equal to 50,000 prayers; his prayer in my mosque is equal to 50,000 prayers, and his prayer in the Sacred Mosque is equal to 100,000 prayers.” [Ibn Majah – Daeef Hadith]
