al aqsa : the nearness of contemplation

In riding on Buraq to the farthest house of Prayer Muhammad, peace be upon him, prayed two raka'ah and then Jibreel took him up to Heaven. This bone of contention for those who do not believe is as a matter of sincerity with those who do. When Allah subhanahu wa ta ala instructed His Messenger to turn and pray in the direction of the Masjid al-haram it was to winnow out the chaff. We thank and praise Allah for His mercy and favours on His obedient servants.
