The History of Jerusalem’s Importance in Islam

Produced by Israel for Tourists, this informative video (02:53) provides a historical approach to the significance of Jerusalem in Islam, describing it as a “political outcome stemming from religious beliefs.” The video emphasizes that, despite the fact that Muhammad never visited Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque were built after his death for political reasons, it is considered the third holiest city in Islam and has many historical, archaeological, religious, and cultural sites that are of great importance to Muslims around the world.
