Baitul-Maqdis Is Al-Aqsa Mosque. by Taamas111 (f): 4:57pm on January 13
Rufai Oladimeji
, Nigeria.
Question

I want to know the differences and the
locations of Masjid Aqsa and Baitul Maqdis.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Baytul-Maqdis is itself the Al-Aqsa mosque
about which Allah Says (what means):
{Exalted is He who took His Servant [i.e.
Prophet Muhammad by night from al-
Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa,
whose surroundings We have blessed, to
show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the
Hearing, the Seeing.} [Quran 17:1] It is also
confirmed that the Prophet said: “When
the tribe of Quraysh belied me, I stood on
the Hijr of Isma’eel (Ishmael) [The area
adjacent to the northwest side of
the Ka’bah, enclosed by a low semi-
circular wall in the sacred mosque in
Makkah] and Allah showed me Baytul-
Maqdis and I started describing it to them
while I was looking at it.”

This is the meaning in principle, however,
sometimes we mention Baytul-Maqdis to
refer to something greater than it. Hence,
sometimes it refers to the area in which
Baytul-Maqdis and its precincts are, as in the
saying of the Prophet said: “Baytul-
Maqdis will be conquered.”

It is also used to refer to Jerusalem which
includes Al-Aqsa mosque in the general
meaning. However, by Baytul-Maqdis we do
not refer to the entire Palestine or Greater
Syria, and these are not considered holy as
Baytul-Maqdis, however, it may be included
in the surrounding area of Al-Aqsa that has
this characteristic (i.e. sanctity). Allah Says
(what means): {Exalted is He who took His
Servant [i.e. Prophet Muhammad] by
night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid
al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have
blessed, to show him of Our signs.
Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing. }
[Quran 17:1]

Allah Knows best.
