About The Book

Virtues of Jerusalem is a much awaited book detailing the sacredness of Jerusalem in Islamic History, theology and future prophecies. Classical sources have been used to present a wide range of information which explains why past and present Muslims revere this blessed city.

The City of al-Quds (Jerusalem) houses one of the holiest sites, the Al-Haram al-Sharif (al-Aqsa Sanctuary.) The precincts of al-Aqsa have been used throughout the centuries as a place of worship, residence and meditation by many Prophets and their followers.

Many Quranic verses and the narrations of the Prophet Muhammad  mention this sacred blessed. Al-Aqsa is also the site from which the Prophet Muhammad  undertook his journey to the Heavens (al-Mi'raj.) Al-Aqsa is the first qiblah (direction of prayer), the second house of worship built on earth and the only Masjid besides the Ka'bah mentioned by name in the Holy Qur'an

This book is essential reading for all Muslims and for all those who seek a better understanding of the struggle over Jerusalem today.

Includes a guide and plan the al-Haram al-Sharif (al-Aqsa sanctuary) with pictures.
