Mohammed visits Mt. Sinai

Reader comment on item: More on the Muslim Claim to Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: "Jerusalem's not in the Qur'an, and Muhammad was never there"

In 1839 artist David Robert was traveling from Egypt to Israel as he made drawings a paintings of historical biblical sites, many of which are compiled in a beautiful picture book. On Mt. Sinai he ran across a small mosque in disrepair where it was claimed Mohammed had touched down on his night journey. In the 1930s an upgrade was done on this building and it became a popular pilgrimage site for Muslims. Sooner or later it is likely there will be found a similar place on the moon where Mohammed's Burack has left a hoof print.
