Yes :)


In the hadith of the Isra' wa-'l Mi'raj [to Palestine and the Ascension to the Heavens] Prophet Muhammad saw Abraham;


..Then I passed by Abraham and he said, 'Welcome! O pious Prophet and pious son.' I asked Gabriel, 'Who is he?' Gabriel replied, 'He is Abraham... [Sahih al Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 345]

Greetings and peace be with you truthseeker63;

I had the privaledge to visit Jerusalem last year, and was able to stand by the place were the prophet ascended to heaven in the region of Mount Moriah. This is on the spot were Abraham was said to have given his son as a sacrifice. It is also were Solomon was commanded to build the Temple to house the Ark of the Covenant of God, known as the Ten Commandments. It is were Jesus worshiped,
Some years after the death of Jesus the Temple was destroyed, two Mosques were built on top of the Temple Mount, The Dome of the Rock is built on were Solomon’s Temple once stood. The Dome is said to be the place where the prophet pbuh, ascended up to heaven on his winged horse.

This place brings Judaism, Christianity and Islam together.

In the spirit of searching for God
