سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَىٰ بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلًا مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الْأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ
Glory to Allah who did take His Servant for a journey by night from the Sacred Mosque (in Makkah) to the Al-Aqsa (in Jerusalem) whose precincts We did bless “(al-Isra 17: 1)
Our Umrah package combined with a tour of Jordan and Masjid-Al-Aqsa is very popular among pilgrims as this provides an opportunity to visit all three great mosques (Masjid Al Haram, Masjid Al Nabavi and Masjid Al Aqsa) in one visit.
This unique tour allows visitors to see various places in Jordan and in Jerusalem including Masjid Al Aqsa, the Mosque that holds a very important place in our hearts as it used to be our first Qibla. It is the 3rd most holy site after Makkah and Madinah in Islam.
Al-Aqsa means the farthest point, and refers to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) miraculous night flight on Al-Buraq from Mecca to Jerusalem and back. It is the location for the most extraordinary gathering in the history of mankind when every Prophet that ever lived were gathered together for a congregational prayer behind Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
All Muslims should undertake this journey as there are numerous ahadiths of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on the importance of Masjid Al-Aqsa and the reward associated to travelling to this second house of Allah that was built on earth after Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
