This is the tomb of Ibrahim (Peace be upon him), built right above his real grave, which is located underground. On the left side is a window from the Jewish synagogue, which is built right next to the mosque. This place is a source of great friction between Muslims and Jews and is carefully guarded.

Ibrahim (peace be upon him) is mentioned by name 69 times in the Quran. He is known as “Khalil-Ullah”, the friend of Allah. Ibrahim (peace be upon him) is considered the patriarch of the three great monotheistic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)
