Al-Masjid al-Aqsa continues today as an important educational and religious center for the people of Jerusalem, and the many thousands of visitors who travel to it every year from all parts of the world, as well as an enduring symbol of unity and high aspiration for the nearly two billion Muslims inhabiting our planet. Yet very few people have more than a superficial knowledge of its spiritual foundations, extraordinary history, or the reasons for its centrality to Middle East politics and world peace.

The book of Al-Masjid al-Aqsa seeks to facilitate a deeper understanding and appreciation of this important site through an encyclopaedic overview of its art and architecture, presented in the context of the events, functions and institutions that inspired it. Integrating the diffuse scholarship of different eras and disciplines into a coherent whole through the means of a comprehensive guided tour, Al-Masjid al-Aqsa enables the reader to comprehend the meaning and significance of the site while exploring it through some of the most outstanding photography on the subject ever gathered together in one volume.

Al-Masjid al-Aqsa is a unique compendium of knowledge and information about the history and significance of this important site, appealing to a broad audience of all faiths and backgrounds, produced to the highest publishing standards in XXL format.

Please do not miss this chance to own one of the unique individually numbered copies of this special limited edition. And while copies are still available, why not take this opportunity to give the gift of Al-Masjid al-Aqsa to a special friend or relative, or to the university or library of your choice?
