Jerusalem regarded as the Forbidden Land which has been referred as Holy Land in incidents that took place 1400 years ago, the Holy Quran mentions the term ‘Holy Land’ on seven different occasions. “Oh my people! Enter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin.” – Hazrat Musa A.S calling to the Children of Israel (Surah 5:21).
Known as Al-Quds which means Holy, Jerusalem holds a lot of importance in Islam. While Islamic scholars debate on the exact ideologies and meanings 1400 years later, many believe that the “Blessed Land” was located in the lands of Jerusalem, the land between Euphrates and Al-Arish or the land of Jericho.
