Friends of Al-Aqsa

Masjid al-Aqsa is no ordinary Masjid; it forms the basis of our history and is the cornerstone of mankind’s foundation. The Noble Prophet (SAW) dedicated a great deal of his life nurturing the Companions to appreciate the excellent qualities of Masjid al-Aqsa and prepared them to embark on an expedition to liberate Jerusalem which at the time was in the hands of the mighty Roman empire.

This booklet prepared by Friends of Al-Aqsa compiles forty ahadith on Masjid Al-Aqsa to show its importance.
