within the north reaches of their control. In 106 AD, the Romans extended
direct rule and established "Provencia Arabia". It became heavily
influenced in its cultural and civic life by Roman models. Bosra was
made the hub of an important network of trade routes linking Egypt,
the Red Sea, Syria and the Mediterranean Mesopotamian regions. While

El-Aqsa is an Arabic name which means the Farthest Mosque. To understand
its name, and its importance, it must be remembered that the roots
of Islam began in the Arabian Peninsula (Saudi Arabia today).
years after the Prophet Mohammad (SAAWS) received his first revelation
he made a miraculous night journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and to
the Seven Heavens on a white flying horse called Al-Buraq El-Sharif.
During his interval in Jerusalem, the Prophet (SAAWS) stopped to pray
at the rock (now covered by the golden Dome), and was given the commandment
to pray five times a day.
Muslims throughout the World use Mecca as the direction of prayers
(Qibla). However, for 16½ months following the Prophet Mohammad's
miraculous journey, Jerusalem was the Qibla.
Prophet Mohammad's life, he instructed Muslims to visit not only the
mosque where they lived in Mecca, but also the 'Farthest mosque' from
them which lay 2000 kilometers north, in Jerusalem. Hence the name
Al-Masjid El-Aqsa, or Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Mosque is the second oldest mosque in Islam after the Ka'ba in Mecca,
and is third in holiness and importance after the mosques in Mecca
rectangular Al-Aqsa Mosque is 144,000 square meters, 35 acres, or
1/6 of the entire area within the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem
as it stands today. It is also called Al-Haram El-Sharif (the Nobel
Sanctuary). The Dome of the Chain marks the exact central point of
Mosque holds up to 400,000 worshippers at one time, bearing in mind
that the space required for each person is roughly 0.8m x 0.5m to
enable the submissive kneeling in prayer. On Fridays at noon, during
the fasting month of Ramadan, and particularly the 27th of Ramadan
(Lailat El-Qadr), the area is filled to virtual capacity.

gates, one is the Golden Gate.
of any Muslim mosque the World over is the thin spiral minaret which
always immediately adjoins the Mosque wall. Minarets are used to call
Muslims to prayer five times a day, seven days a week throughout the
year. At Al-Aqsa Mosque, there are four minarets: 3 square and 1 cylindrical
from the Mamluk period.
are no minarets on the Eastern side of Al-Aqsa Mosque because there
were no inhabitants and thus no-one to call to prayer. After all,
it was not till the late nineteenth century that Jerusalem began to
expand outside the city walls.
is made up of 3 parts, narrow arcades run along one end, a huge atrium
and a covered area at the south.
alongside the arcades are several family burial sites (maqamat). These
persons contributed to the schools and charities in the vicinity of
the Mosque run by the Supreme Muslim Council.
atrium of Al-Aqsa Mosque is an oasis of peace and tranquillity inside
a walled city of hustle and bustle. It has trees, lawns, fountains,
the beautiful Shrine of the Dome of the Rock small domed rooms and
structures which are rooms for scholars, sheikhs and religious court
offices, and a museum.
Muslims pray, they are required to go through a ritual ablution. There
are manuablution areas, but the Cup is one of the oldest and most
photographed fountains on the Mosque grounds.
the center of the southern end of the atrium is the covered area of
Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Mihrab (niche showing direction of prayer) of
the Mosque is located here. Al-Aqsa building (recognizable by its
lead dome), was originally built nearly 1300 years ago by Muslim Caliph
Al-Walid the son of Abdul Malek bin Marwan in 709 AD (the same Al-Walid
who occupied Spain and made it Andalusia).
its history, Al-Aqsa was subject to successive restoration work due
to damages caused by earthquakes, etc. The building now has the central
nave and 6 aisles (the original covered area had 14 aisles).
covered area of Al-Aqsa Mosque is a very simple, but large and imposing,
rectangular structure. It has an area of 3500 square meters, and holds
up to 5000 Muslims at prayer at one time. The Qibla facing south towards

on the western side.
outer dome was covered with Lead in 1985 replacing the Aluminum dome
of 1964 in order to restore it to its original cover.

accordance with tradition, men and women are permitted to pray within
the covered area but in different sections, 3 times a day. The remaining
two daily prayers as well as Friday noon prayers, Al-Aqsa is for men
only. The covered part of Al-Aqsa Mosque was converted to a Knight's
Hostel in part, and Chapel in part during the Crusader period. Restoration
of Islamic atmosphere was done by Salahuddin Al-Ayyoubi.
restoration of the subterranean Marwani Musallah (praying place) was
completed in 1996. It is 4000 square meters, and was tiled in a brief
2 months entirely by volunteers. The Marwani Musallah is mistakenly
believed by some to be the site of King Solomon's stables, however
its construction is actually entirely 8th century Umayyad.
the middle of the 19th century Al-Aqsa Mosque was opened for Non-Muslim
visitors. For Non-Muslims, the Mosque is open during fixed times on
weekday mornings and afternoons on payment of an entrance fees. The
Mosque is closed to Non-Muslims on Fridays throughout the year and
all Muslim holidays.

to whom the Prophet, promised paradise. Dinner is included at the
the supreme commander of the Northern Muslim Army, Abu Ubeida successfully
conquered Greate Syria Prophet Mohammad dubbed him "The Trustee
of the Nation" because of the knowledge he acquired.
the Prophet (SAAWS) died, Abu Ubeida was among the candidates for
the Caliphate. He believed Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq was to lead the Muslims
and become Caliph because Prophet Mohammad (SAAWS) had asked him to
lead prayers upon his death.
Ubeida thus managed to avoid insurrection and disunity amongst Muslims.
At the age of 58, he fell victim to the Great Plague that spread through
Greater Syria . In the central Jordan Valley, his tomb is a major
Islamic center with a mosque, library, and a cultural center.
handsome, generous and venerable companion Mo'ath ibn Jabal entered
Islam at the age of 18. He was one of the six charged with the task
of compiling the Holy Qur'an during the life of Prophet Mohammad who
said of him "the most knowledgeable on what is allowed and prohibited
(in Islam) is Mo'ath ibn Jabal" and that "Mo'ath will be
at the forefront of all scholars on Judgment Day".
fact, he was regarded as the most learned in matters of Halal (permissible
acts) and Haram (forbidden acts). Before accompanying Abu Ubeida Amer
ibn Al-Jarrah on his conquests and later succeeding him, Prophet Mohammad
sent Mo'ath ibn Jabal as counselor to the people of Yemen.
also took part in the Aqaba Allegiance Convention between the Prophet
and his supporters from Medina. He died at the age of 38 in the Jordan
Valley, having spent his short life teaching faith and the Holy Qur'an.

venerable companion Shurahbil ibn Hasanah was among the early Muslims
who fled to Abyssinia. He was reputed for his strong faith, intelligence,
bravery and successful administration. Shurahbil .actively participated
in the Battle of Yarmouk and the conquest of Jerusalem . When the
Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq sent the Muslim armies to Greater Syria

a province in Greater Syria, where he distinguished himself for his
fair dealings with subordinates. He died from the plague on the same
day as the venerable companion Abu Ubeida Amer ibn Al-Jarrah .
venerable companion Amir ibn Abi Waqqas was the maternal cousin of
the Prophet and the 11th man to convert to Islam. He was devoted to
his faith, although his mother Himnah, daughter of Abi Sufyan ibn
Harb ibn Umayyah, swore to stay out in the burning sun until he renounces
Islam. He migrated to Abyssinia and fought in the Battle of Uhud and
was later entrusted with carrying messages from the commanders of
the Muslim army to the Caliph in Medina.

Head south to mutaa. The most significant and the fiercest battle
fought during Prophet Mohammad's lifetime was the Battle of Mutah
(629 AD). It also took the lives of his closest companions, martyred
fighting against a combined Byzantine/Ghassanid army. You can visit
the tombs of the venerable companions Zaid ibn Harithah, Ja'far ibn
Abi Talib, and Abdullah ibn Ruwahah in the town of Al-Mazar Al-Janubi
Mohammad's (SAAWS) adopted son, the venerable companion Zaid ibn Harithah
led the Muslim army during the Battle of Mutah. Zaid fought in matchless
spirit of bravery until he fell, fatally stabbed. He is the only companion
mentioned in the Holy Qur'an by name [Sura 33, verse 37]: "Then
when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, we joined her in
marriage to thee: in order that (in future) there may be no difficulty
to the Believers in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their
adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved (their marriage) with
them. And Allah's command must be fulfilled".
deputy commander of the army the venerable companion Ja'far ibn Abi
Talib, cousin of Prophet Mohammad , then took the banner after Zaid.
He is often known as "The Flying Ja'far" because he lost
his hands during the battle and continued to hold the banner. Ja'far,
was known to be similar to the Prophet both in features and in character.
He was renowned for his kindness towards the needy and for narrating
the hadiths directly from the Prophet .
was charged with heading a group of Muslims who migrated to Abyssinia
(Ethiopia). The non-believers sent a delegation headed by Amr ibn
Al-Aas to bring the Muslims back to Mecca. A debate took place in
the presence of the King of Abyssinia where Ja'far proved to be indomitable
and unflinching in elaborating the Muslim viewpoint.
the King asked him about Prophet Mohammad's (SAAWS) opinion of Jesus
the son of Mary, Ja'far wisely answered: "I will tell you what
Prophet Mohammad says about Jesus based on the words of Allah: Jesus
is the spirit and word of Allah who revealed it to Mary the Pious
Virgin". Content with the reply, the King of Abyssinia allowed
the Muslims to stay.
venerable companion Abdullah ibn Ruwahah, the third in charge of the
army after Zaid and Ja'far, then assumed command. Abdullah was known
among the companions for his piety, obedience and patience. Furthermore,
he was a faithful and selflessly dedicated soldier. He was a famous
poet of his time, and became the Prophet's poet. Before being martyred
in the Battle of Mutah, Abdullah said the following lines as his army
faced an overwhelming number of Byzantine and Ghassanid Arab troops:
my soul! If you are not killed, you are bound to die anyway. This
is the fate of death overtaking you. What you have wished for, you
have been granted. If you do what they (Zaid and Ja'far) have done.
Then you are rightly guided".
and around Kerak other shrines of significance to Islam are located.
You can visit Prophet Nuh 'Noah' shrine in the city of Kerak. Allah
sent Noah to his people to warn them of divine punishment if they
continued to worship idols. As stated in the Holy Qur'an in a Sura
entitled Noah (Sura 71, verses 1-3): "We sent Noah to his People
(with the Command): Do thou warn thy People before there comes to
them a grievous Chastisement. He said: O my People! I am to you a
Warner, clear and open: That ye should worship Allah, fear Him and
with great wisdom and piety, the Prophet and King of Israel, Sulayman
'Solomon' , has a shrine in Sarfah near Kerak. Prophet Solomon had
great powers that included control over the winds, over the Jinnis
and understanding the language of birds and other animals. Islam regards
Solomon as impeccable like his father Prophet and King Dawud 'David'
. Prophet Solomon is mentioned in 16 verses in the Holy Qur'an.
in Kerak is the shrine of Zaid ibn Ali ibn Al-Hussein. He was the
great, great, grandson of Prophet Mohammad , and a religious leader
known for his righteous, majestic and knowledgeable ways. When describing
Zaid, Al-Imam Ja'far Al-Sadiq said: "Among us he was the best
read in the Holy Qur'an, and the most knowledgeable about religion,
and the most caring towards family and relatives". (120 km) continue

crack in the Nubian sandstone. It is a winding, one-kilometer-long
fissure between overhanging cliffs that seem to meet more than 300
Near the end of the passage, the SIQ, with great style, makes one
last turn and out of the gloom in towering brightness appears Petra’s
most impressive monument, el Khazneh - The Treasury. This is one of
the most elegant remains of antiquity, carved out of the solid rock
from the side of the mountain, is nearly 140 feet high and 90 feet
