Overview

“The Messiah, ‘Isa son of Maryam, was but a Messenger of God and His Word which he conveyed unto Mary, and a Spirit from Him.” Quran (4:171).

Jesus (Isa Ibn Maryam – as), al-Masīḥ (“the Messiah”) is a figure who is loved and revered by billions of people the world over. Yet there is so much confusion surrounding his status, life and work and both Muslims and Christians both hold Jesus in high regard but view him in very different ways. Most of his life and dawah featured around Jerusalem and surrounding areas.

In the this tour, we will follow the footsteps of Isa (as) from birth to ascension and retell his Seerah(story) from an Islamic perspective and his eventual return in Jerusalem. We will visit Bethlehem, his birth place, Bethany in Jordan, where Isa (as) was baptized by John the Baptist (Yayha (as)), and Jerusalem where he ascended to Heaven and inshallah return!  We will also recount the connected stories of all the other Prophets prior to Isa (as) and his meeting with Last and Greatest of the Messengers, Prophet Muhammed(saw) in the heavens during the Isra Miraj in Jerusalem, Masjid Al Aqsa. Inshallah, you will recall, enjoy and explore the lands of “Qasas al-anbiya (Stories of The Prophets)” and visit the Farthest mosque (Masjid al-Aqsa) in Jerusalem and attain the rewards prayer Jummah and more.

History :

Southern Bilad Al-Sham, geographically Jordan has always been a critical land bridge between Africa, Asia and Europe. Its neighbours, the great civilizations of the ancient world, have sought throughout time the control of this territory. Due to its strategic location and mild climate, Jordan has been constantly settled throughout every single period of history since 9500 BC –  Pharaonic Egypt, Babylonians, Hittites, Persians,Macedonian Greeks, Roman and Islam. The multitude of civilizations in Jordan left distinct marks behind, turning it into an open museum, evidence for the rich heritage that Jordan enjoys today.

For Muslims, Jordan & Jerusalem  are part of the blessed Bilad Al-Sham area. A multitude of prophets have lived, died and buried and other have passed through its lands. So we will find the mausoleum for Prophets (as) Noah, Hud, Lot, Shoaib, Moses,Aaron, Solomon, Joshua, Job, Yayha, Isa, Al Khidr, the people of Thamud and many others from our Qasas al-anbiya (Stories of The Prophets). Many of the great battles of the Companions of our Prophet Muhammad (saws) took place here and as well as many great Muslims throughout the ages.

Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem need no introduction as their importance and significance is well established in the Islamic Tradition. The Prophet (saw) said “A prayer in the Sacred Mosque (Makkah) is worth 10,000 prayers; a prayer in my mosque (al-Madīnah) is worth 1,000 prayers; and a prayer in al-Aqsa Mosque (Jerusalem) is worth 500 prayers”, more than in any other mosque [Bukhari]. We will visit the Holy Land during these dates and perform Jummah, inshallah, as well as seeing significant places of interest.

We are please to announce that one of the Imams of Masjid Al Aqsa will deliver a short reminder of the Jesus(as) to our group.
