Hazrat Daud A.S King David (Hazrat Daud A.S) founded the city of Jerusalem and holy places which was further taken care by his son King Solomon (Hazrat Sulaiman A.S). Most of the times, the city of Jerusalem is known by Muslims as “Bait-ul-Muqqadas” (holy house or place). This city is equally holy for the three largest religions in the world i.e. Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Holy prophet of Islam considered it as the first Qibla and used to say his prayers with his companions facing towards its direction. In the journey of Mairaj this city was the first destination of the Holy prophet where the other prophets offered prayer after him. King David ruled the city for 33 years and this was a period of unrest for Israelites army as he united Israelites together who were earlier divided apart. King Solomon constructed Hekhal (Solomon’s Temple) according to the wishes of his father, King David. Deep inside the Hekhal he built a sacred place and put the “Sakina’s Coffin” there. The city was destroyed and captured many times by different warriors and religions. Hekhal was destroyed and rebuilt many a times in various eras. During the caliphate of Hazrat Umar Farooq (R.A), he conquered Jerusalem and built a mosque at the place where it used to be Hekhal earlier. At that time the place was like a garbage storage because people used to through their garbage there to register their hatred against the Jews. Later prophets of Umayyad dynasty laid down the foundation of Aqsa Mosque at the same place. Now this city hosts the most religious and holy places of Jews, Christians and Muslims.
