Moriah is not in Jerusalem

Reader comment on item: The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: muslims do have a lot to do with islam

Hello Anna,

Moriah is not in Jerualem, it is Marwah in Makkah

The Bible distorted the information

Thereis no such mount in Jerusalem called Moriah, Abraham was about to sacrifice his sn Ishmael in a Hill called Marwah near Makkah.

Hope you made it to Islam
