Jerusalem is in the Qur'an

Reader comment on item: Claiming Jerusalem is in the Koran

Submitted by William Hamblin (United States), Mar 7, 2012 at 18:49

Although the proper name Jerusalem is not found in the Qur'an, the city is mentioned in a number of passages. The most obvious are:

The visit of the Queen of Sheba to Solomon's Palace in Jerusalem Q 27:44-45

Mary serving in the temple of Jerusalem Q 3:35-37

Zachariah's angelic visitation in the temple of Jerusalem Q 3:38-42

The story of the destruction of the temple of Jerusalem by the Babylonians and Romans Q 17:4-8

I'll take my $1,000,000 in twenties, thanks!
