A little about the Mosque -
The Aqsa Mosque, also known as the Qibli Mosque or Qibli Chapel, is the main congregational mosque or prayer hall in the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in the Old City of Jerusalem

Masjid Al-Aqsa is important in Islam because Muslims believe that the prophet Muhammad was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to Al-Aqsa during the Night journey, and then on to heaven. It was also known as the second place of worship built in Islam, 40 years after the Kaaba, and is mentioned in the Quran as being ‘holy’ & ‘blessed’ in numerous verses. 

According to Islamic scriptures, the Prophet Muhammed صلى الله عليه وسلم taught followers that they should undertake a special journey to one of three important mosques: Masjid Al-Haram in Mecca, Al Masjid An-Nabawi in Madinah, and Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem. Prayers in these special mosques will generate amazing blessings and worshippers will receive at least 500 times the reward of Salaah performed in another location.
