A rare view of the rock at the center of the Dome of the Rock. Muslims refer to it as “as-Sakrah”, the rock from where they believe the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven. In Jewish tradition, it known as “the Foundation Stone,” where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son and where the Temples stood. Many historians believe the biblical Jebusites worshiped here nearly 5000 years ago.
