Al Masjid Al-Aqsa was founded forty (days or months or years) next to the Ka`bah. Historians believe that Prophet Ibrahim, peace and blessings be upon him, was the one who built or ordered Al-Aqsa to be built. It was demolished during the conquests of Jerusalem. `Umar Ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, is the first one then who restored Al-Aqsa. He recognized the sight but nothing was built. When abdul-Malik Ibn Marwan held the office in the year 66 A.H., he rebuilt Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock.

Al-Aqsa is one of the largest and most important mosques in the Muslim world, and the earliest in Palestine.
