A Brief Guide to Al Haram Al Sharif Jerusalem – 1929

 

This small pamphlet, published by the Supreme Moslem Council (with the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, at its head), provides historical and location information about the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, which Moslems call Haram Al Sharif. The fact that this Moslem-written document admits to the fact that this site was where Solomon’s Temple stood is noteworthy, since in recent years, a number of prominent Moslem leaders and clerics have denied the legitimacy of Jewish claims that the Temple Mount is a place of great historical importance to the Jews.

  • “The site is one of the oldest in the world. Its sanctity dates from the earliest (perhaps pre-historic) times. Its identity with the site of Solomon’s Temple is beyond dispute. This, too, is the spot, according to the universal belief, on which ‘David built there an altar unto the Lord and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings (2 Samuel XXIV, 25).’ p. 4
