Al-Quds (Jerusalem in Classical Judaic and Islamic Traditions)


Al-Quds - Jerusalem - is one of the most ancient cities in the world. It functions as a holy place and a central religious symbol within the religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Aside from having a special place in our hearts, what do we really know of this majestic city, of its geography, of its colourful history, of its religious significance?

In this book, the author shows us Al-Quds from the Jewish and Muslim perspectives through ancient texts, as well the Qur'an and Hadith, in an effort to shed light on the Islamic perspective.

Dr Mohammed Al-Khateeb is Professor of Islamic Studies and Comparative Religion at Al al-Bayt University, Jordan, as well as Chief Editor of The Jordanian Journal in Islamic Studies. He holds a PhD from Manchester University in Comparative Religion.
