Many attend annual events at Al-Aqsa Mosque, also known as “The Dome of the Rock“, because it is the third holiest site in the Muslim world. Only the mosques in Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia where Islam began are considered holier.

Those who attend the Al-Aqsa Muhammad’s Birthday program may spend time singing songs of praise to Muhammad’s character and exploits. They may also recite Koranic passages together, enjoy sweets and refreshments, and listen to sermons and speeches.
The streets are bustling in and around Jerusalem on Muhammad’s Birthday, and the local economy gets a huge boost from the influx of the faithful.
