  • Jerusalem is considered by some as the third-holiest city in Islam.
  • For approximately a year, before it was permanently switched to the Kabaa in Mecca, the qibla (direction of prayer) for Muslims was Jerusalem.
  • The city's lasting place in Islam, however, is primarily due to Muhammad's Night of Ascension (c. AD 620).
  • Muslims believe Muhammad was miraculously transported one night from Mecca to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, whereupon he ascended to Heaven to meet previous prophets of Islam
