Amman, Apr.15 (Petra) -- HRH Prince Faisal bin Al-Hussein, on Sunday, attended a ceremony, organized by the Ministry of Awqaf, Islamic Affairs and Holy Places, marking the anniversary of Al Israa wal Miraj, Prophet Mohammad’s nocturnal journey from Makkah to Jerusalem and his ascension to heaven.

During the ceremony, Awqaf Minister, Abdul Nasser Abul Basal, delivered a speech in which he stressed the importance of the Hashemites’ custodianship over the Al Aqsa Mosque, and other holy sites in Jerusalem.

He pointed to His Majesty King Abdullah's role in preserving the Islamic identity of the Holy City and their efforts to support Palestinians and prevent Israeli attempts to Judaise the city.

The Israa, followed by Miraj, was one of the miracles in the life of Prophet Mohammad. It happened on Rajab 27, in the seventh month of the Hijri lunar calendar, in the 10th year of Mohammad’s prophethood.
