stands for Mosque

The beautiful picture above is an inside look of the spectacular Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. This Mosque, ordered to be built in 691 by Abd al-Malik, is considered by many to be the first Muslim architectural masterpiece. The site on which it stands, is considered to be the site of many important events such as the place of Adam's burial; the site where Ibrahim was tested by God and ordered to sacrifice his son, Ismail; and the spot where Muhammad began his night journey.
