I would like to inform you that the place (Moriah) tha tis mentioned in the bible is the same place in Mecca called Marwah. Where Abrahm left his legitimate wife and his first born son Ishmael there. by God's order.

Marwah and Safa are two elevated places in Mecca where Hajar was going forth and back looking for water as the water they had finished and she was worried about the baby Ishmael from Dying due to lack odf water. during and after few trips looking for water or people, Angel Gabriel hit a rock and a sprig of water flowed and then she was able to drink and to water her baby.

so the verse in the bible He said, Take now your son, your only son, whome you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will tell you." - Genesis 22:2 - refers to that place in Mecca called Marwah

The bible scholar are not sure where is this mountain located in the holy land and they are making assumptions.
