    In Jewish tradition, it is here that Abraham, the progenitor and first patriarch of the Hebrew people, is said to have prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac.
    The rock over which the shrine was built is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. the Dome of the Rock isn’t a mosque but a Muslim shrine. Like the Ka’ba in Mecca, but literally a dome covering a sacred stone. . This stone , is traditionally believed to be the place from which the Prophet Muhammad founder of Islam, ascended into heaven during his Night Journey to heaven. accompanied by the angel Gabriel.

    The site was first consecrated by the Israelites of Exodus. The Foundation Stone is the symbolic foundation upon which the first stone was laid in the building of the world, and the place of the Binding of Isaac (the holiest site in Judaism). Later, according to Jewish tradition,it is the site where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac at the command of God, where Jacob saw the ladder to heaven.

    For Moslems, according to tradition,the rock was sanctified by the story of the Prophet Mohammed’s Miraaj or Night Journey to Jerusalem and back to Makkah [Mecca] (Qur’an 17:1). From the top of the rock, Mohammed ascended to heaven at the end of his Night Journey. The Dome of the Rock presents the first example of the Islamic world-view and is the symbol of the oneness and continuity of the Abrahamic, i.e. Jewish, Christian and Muslim faith.

    The Dome and Al-Aqṣā Mosque are both An impressive and beautiful edifices. The rock located atop the earlier location of the Temple Mount, the site of Solomon’s Temple and its successors. The Muslims took control of the Temple Mount in 635 C.E. finding it in a neglected state. Omar ordered the area cleared of rubbish was *****ed by the Muslim ruler Abd el-Malik in 688-691 to protect the “holy rock” . half a century after the death of the Prophet Muhammad . It was not intended to be a mosque, but a shrine for pilgrims. Conquering crusaders reconsecrated the building as a Christian church for a brief time, but with the crusaders’ defeat, it soon reverted back to Islam in less than a hundred years.
