The Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount in Jerusalem Deception

In the aftermath of the worst defeat suffered by Arabs – in the Six Days War of 1967 – since the Ottomans subjugated them in the 14th century, the al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem became a tinderbox of Muslim fantasies and fanaticism.

Tragically, it was General Moshe Dayan – who was minister of defense at the time – who committed the worst possible goodwill blunder for the sake of peaceful co-existence with Muslims by allowing the Muslims total control of the Temple Mount area, called Waqf instead of having it under the control of Israel.

Like most of non-Muslim humanity, he honestly believed that by showing magnanimity towards Muslims, they would appreciate it, not comprehending that the beliefs of Muslims based upon Allah’s Sharia prohibits them from ever making peace with none Muslim/Kuffar/Infidels.

Waqf: A legal way to circumvent the Sharia requirement that an individual’s estate be divided among many heirs. Through a waqf, an individual could endow an institution or group with all or part of his estate, in perpetuity, before his death.

The Jerusalem Islamic Waqf is an Islamic religious trust, best known for controlling and managing the current Islamic edifices on the Temple Mount (Haram al-Sharif), including al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock.

There are on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem – on the present site of the flat plaza surrounded by retaining walls (including the Western Wall that was built during the reign of Herod the Great for an expansion of the temple) – three monumental structures from the early Umayyad period – the al-Aqsa Mosque, the Dome of the Rock and the Dome of the Chain.

al-Aqsa Mosque: The covered mosque building was originally a small prayer house erected by Umar ibn al Khattab – the second caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate – after the Muslim conquest of the Middle East in the early 7th century.

In the history of Islam, Umar personally accepted the surrender of Aelia (Jerusalem) from the Christians. He purposely did not enter the Church but prayed outside it so that Muslims would not consider it an Islamic holy place.

If there was a Muslim mosque on the Temple Mount at that time as falsely claimed by Muslims, why would Umar pray in the open instead of in the alleged Night Journey mosque?

It was rebuilt and expanded by the Umayyad caliph Abd al-Malik and finished by his son al-Walid in 705. The mosque was completely destroyed by an earthquake in 746 and rebuilt by the Abbasid caliph al-Mansur in 754. It was rebuilt again in 780. Another earthquake destroyed most of al-Aqsa in 1033, but two years later, the Fatimid caliph Ali az-Zahir built another mosque whose outline is preserved in the current structure.

Dome of the Rock:  An Islamic shrine located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It was initially completed in 691–92 CE at the order of Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik on the site of the Second Jewish Temple that was destroyed during the Roman Siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE. The original dome collapsed in 1015 and was rebuilt in 1022–23.

Therefore, the two most important mosques on the Temple Mount are:

  1. Dome of the Rock
  2. Al Aqsa Mosque

The Umayyad Caliphs commissioned the construction of the al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock on the site. The Dome was completed in 692 CE, making it one of the oldest extant Islamic structures in the world.

The Al Aqsa Mosque rests on the far southern side of the Mount, facing Mecca. The Dome of the Rock currently sits in the middle (not facing Mecca; hence is not an actual mosque), occupying or close to the area where Solomon’s Temple previously stood.

Tragically, since most of humanity has absolutely no idea of the facts and reality pertaining to the history of the era (because the majority of them never researched the subjects), they are totally deceived by the perfectly oiled Arab and Muslim propaganda machines, aided, abetted, and stupidly parroted, by most of the Western media, politicians, academia, and clergy.

The Muslim disinformation machine incessantly implies that the Dome of the Rock (the gold-covered cupola) is the Aqsa mosque when in fact, it is the other mosque that is called al Aqsa.

In this manner, they incite the mindless and ignorant Muslims around the world that the Israelis are either desecrating or trying to destroy the Aqsa mosque, both of which are pure lies.

The reason they do so is because they have concocted the myth that Muhammad’s Night Journey was from Mecca to the Dome of the Rock (hence the Aqsa mentioned in 17.1).

As always, let me share with you the FACTS based entirely upon the Islamic sources~

Since the Islamic historical records show that both the Dome of the Rock and the Aqsa mosques were built 63 years AFTER Muhammad was dead, then it would have been impossible for Muhammad to have visited any of them. This fact alone utterly demolishes their monumental lie.

Therefore, it should be obvious that their claims are, as always, totally false.

They then change the narrative to tell the world that Muhammad actually visited the Temple of Solomon in his alleged Night Journey.

The claim by the followers of Muhammad for Jerusalem as their third holiest place is founded on the deliberate misinterpretation of the following verse~

Isra is the name of Surah 17, which is also called Bani Isra’il (The Children of Israel). It is the alleged Nocturnal Journey from Mecca to the Farthest Mosque mentioned in:

Al Isra 17:1 “Glory to (Allah) Who did take His Servant for journey [Asra/Travel] by night from the Sacred Mosque [Masjid al Haram] to the Farthest Mosque [Masjid al Aqsa] whose precincts We did Bless in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the one Who heareth and seeth (all things).” 

The explanation of this Aya/Verse is found first and foremost in the ONLY biography of Muhammad, written by Muhammad Ibn Ishaq in his monumental book of ‘Sirat Rassoul Allah.’

He informs us with great honesty, on the authority of Muhammad’s premier wife, Aisha, that his body never left her side and that he was only transported spiritually.

This is corroborated by the Qarawiyun Library Manuscript in Fez, Morocco, where it repeats that Aisha, the Prophet’s wife and most intimate companion of his later years, declared emphatically that “He was transported in his spirit (bi-ruhihi), while his body did not leave its place.”

Also, the great Al-Hasan al-Basri, who belonged to the next generation, held uncompromisingly to the same view.

In another version in (section 267 p 184), it is Hind, Umm Hani d. of Abu Talib, Muhammad’s cousin and sister of Ali, that relates concerning the Night Journey:

“The apostle went on NO Night Journey except while he was in my house. He slept that night in my house. He prayed the final night prayer, and he slept, and we slept there. ….”

Even the obvious should be pointed out to readers, that the name of Jerusalem is not once mentioned anywhere in the Quran or Hadith. Jerusalem, on the other hand, is mentioned 667 times in the Bible.

This alleged ‘event’ is described in the following most trusted Sahih (Truthful) Hadiths~

Bukhari Hadith 1:345 [Gabriel took Muhammad by hand to the first Heaven] where there is no mention of Jerusalem.

Bukhari Hadith 5:227 & 4:429 [Gabriel & Buraq go to first Heaven] again, there is no mention of Jerusalem.

Bukhari Hadith 9:608 [Gabriel took Muhammad by hand to first Heaven], yet once more, there is no mention of Jerusalem.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.233        Narrated by Jabir bin Abdullah

The Prophet said, “When the Quraish disbelieved me (concerning my night journey), I stood up in Al-Hijr (the unroofed portion of the Ka’ba), and Allah displayed Bait-ul-Maqdis before me, and I started to inform them (Quraish) about its signs while looking at it.”

Let us now be charitable to Muhammad and assume that he did visit Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.

Unfortunately for Muhammad bin Abd Allah and all his unhinged followers is the simple but incontrovertible fact that nothing was left of Solomon’s Temple in the year 622AD since it was completely destroyed by the Roman emperor, Titus Caesar Vespasianus, 552 years earlier.

Therefore, Muhammad’s claim that Allah revealed anything to him is actually blasphemous, making Allah complicit with his lies.

All the Islamic incitements against Israel and Jews are based entirely on egregious falsehoods, concocted, disseminated, and incited by Muslim clerics and leaders (with the usual Western Jew-haters) to demonize and dehumanize Jews so as to justify their incessant hatreds and acts of terror.

Based only on the above Islamic sources, the myths surrounding the Night Journey and the holiness of Jerusalem to Muslims are totally demolished; they also completely discredit Muhammad as a prophet and the alleged divine origin of his Quran.

I challenge anyone to disprove any of the above that are based entirely on Islamic sources and nothing else.

The whole of humanity should be made aware of these undeniable truths to put the current events in reality instead of figments of one’s imagination.

If he didn’t mean the Temple Mount, what do you think Muhammad meant by “the Farthest mosque?” How did the Quraishi people respond to his “Night Ride” claim?

I’ve read that during the Night Ride and ascendancy into heaven, saints and patriarchs bow to Muhammad, with the ultimate crescendo being Jesus’ own confession that Muhammad is the mouthpiece of God. Is that the gist?

In 2019, Journalist Christopher Sign published his book, titled “Secret On The Tarmac,” about the private meeting between former President Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on her private plane.

Cyber Pandemic the Next Globalists Forecast

The reader would be wise to become educated because the next “pandemic” may be just around the corner; it could prove far more deadly. It might not have anything to do with pathogens at all. Considering the recent, nearly simultaneous hack attacks against a pipeline company, a meat plant, a news organization, and most recently the donation lists of sixty U.S. Congress members, are these victims part of a real-time attempt to experiment with response times and measures?

So even though North Face had to know their clothing is made from oil, they had to pretend it was not. Why? Because like the Emperor’s subjects, they would be worse than stupid if they did not pretend. They would not be “woke.” They would be pariahs in the woke world of environmental social justice activists. And in the woke anti-oil world, Emperor North Face would have no clothes to sell…

Ending Hydraulic Fracturing Will Sabotage America as Energy Prices Soar

As a result of the hydraulic fracturing revolution, America became the world’s largest oil producer. Better yet, in 2019 and 2020, for the first time since 1952, hydraulic fracturing helped the U.S became a net total energy exporter, thereby making a major contribution to our national security. Many governments are bowing to uninformed activists and political correctness and banning this important technology…

An Open Letter to Former President Barack Obama

Racism is the belief that people can be categorized by race, and that race is a determining factor in the makeup of a person. Critical Race Theory categorizes people by race, and makes race the determining factor in the makeup of each person. Critical Race Theory IS racist, and it comes as no surprise to non-racist Americans, like me, that Critical Race Theory is peddled by the same political party that gave us slavery, Jim Crow, and the KKK…

Several U.S. Senators, including Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs minority Chairman Senator Ron Johnson, came out to pummel social and mainstream media for intentionally suppressing information to the American people that lead to the truth that SARS-CoV-2, a weapon of bioterrorism, was unleashed from a lab in Wuhan, China. This dramatic press briefing culminated in a call for Fauci to step down…
