Al Aqsa Mosque

Reader comment on item: Israel's Predicament at 60: World's worst neighbourhood
in response to reader comment: Not built before 638 AD

Submitted by Khawla (United Arab Emirates), May 22, 2008 at 03:02

The place on which Al Aqsa Mosque was built is sacred. It is the place on which the second oldest masjid was built, after Masjid Al Haram by 40 years. It is said David built it or Abraham. And Solomon reconstructed it.

There is a famous hadith by Muhammad about the oldest places of prayers. You can read the hadith here.
