Summary

This book is a journey through the history of Jerusalem. The entire city is a veritable museum-a treasure trove of all things sacred to the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims. Every stone here has witnessed the tumultuous history of the three faiths and their faithful. The journey begins with the migration of Prophet Abraham to Canaan and ends with the fall of Palestine in 1967. It evokes the interminable suffering of the Jews and the cruelty of the Christian Crusaders who drowned the streets of the Holy City in the blood of Muslims and Jews. This is the story of Bait al Maqdis where Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) attained Mairaj, and where Caliph Umar proclaimed Islam. The saga of Jerusalem flows with the history of the Ummayads, the Abbasids, the Fatimids, the Ayyubids, the Mamluks and the Ottomans. The splendid Islamic architecture is embodied in the magnificent Dome of the Rock, which stands proud as the icon of Muslim heritage in a world beset with violence and hatred.
