Masjid al-Aqsa (Bayt al-Maqdis)?




Q: Do You know which is Masjid al-Aqsa (Bayt al-Maqdis) ?

Quote: "Just then, God showed me the Baytu’l Maqdis. While looking at it, I described every detail one by one. They even asked me, “How many doors does the Baytu’l Maqdis have?” however, I had not counted its number of doors. When I saw the Baytu’l Maqdis across from me, I began to look at it, count each of its doors and told them the number.” [
Ibn Sa’d, Tabaqat, V. 1, p. 215; Muslim, Sahih, V. 1, p. 108.] 


 Isra (Night Journey) and Miraj (Ascension)

They asked the Prophet (s) proof after proof that he went there. When the Prophet (s) told them that he went to Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, the Qurayshis objected to him by saying, “How could Muhammad go to a place that takes a month to go and return in one night?” Then, those who had seen Masjid al-Aqsa before asked him, “Can you describe Masjid al-Aqsa to us?”

 The Prophet (s) narrated the talk between them as follows:

“... Allah showed me Baytu’l Maqdis. While looking at it, I described every detail one by one. They even asked me, “How many doors does Baytu’l Maqdis have?” However, I had not counted its number of doors. When I saw Baytu’l Maqdis across from me, I began to look at it, count each of its doors and told them the number.”

[Ibn Abi Shayba, Musannaf, V. 14, p. 306; Ahmad b. Hanbal, Musnad, V. 1, p. 309; Abu'l-Faraj Ibn Jawzi, al-Wafa, V. 1 , p. 223; Dhahabi, Tarikhu'l-Islam, p. 250.]
