Abu Dharr (ra) reported that he asked the Prophet (saw), “O Messenger of Allah, which Masjid was built first on earth”? The Prophet (saw) replied, “The Sacred Masjid of Makkah”.
Abu Dharr (r) then asked, “Which was next”? The Prophet (saw) said, “Masjid Al-Aqsa”.
It seems that there is either mass confusion or a concerted effort regarding convincing Muslims that Masjid Al Aqsa is only the Dome of The Rock (Golden Dome, famous picture shows up when you search anything Palestinian). THIS is Masjid Al Aqsa, the 3rd of the holy mosques, the first qiblah of the believers, the venue where the Prophet [saw] ascended to the heavens, where he led the prophets of God in prayer.
This is our heritage. We need to learn about, connect, and develop love for it. May Allah free His House from the terrible neighbors that are currently abusing it, and allow us all to visit freely.
I just came across this brothers tweets. May Allah make it easy for him. Remember him in your prayers.

Describing the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wassalam), who passed by her tent on his journey of migration, Umm Ma’bad Al-Khuza’iyah said to her husband:
"He was innocently bright and had broad countenance. His manners were fine. Neither was his belly bulging out nor was his head deprived of hair. He had black attractive eyes finely arched by continuous eyebrows. His hair glossy and black, inclined to curl, he wore long. His voice was extremely commanding. His head was large, well formed and set on a slender neck. His expression was pensive and contemplative, serene and sublime. The stranger was fascinated from the distance, but no sooner he became intimate with him than this fascination was changed into attachment and respect. His expression was very sweet and distinct. His speech was well set and free from the use of superfluous words, as if it were a rosary of beads. His stature was neither too high nor too small to look repulsive. He was a twig amongst the two, singularly bright and fresh. He was always surrounded by his companions. Whenever he uttered something, listeners would hear him with rapt attention and whenever he issued any command, they vied with each other in carrying it out. He was a master and a commander. His utterances were marked by truth and sincerity, free from all kinds of falsehood and lies."

This man is the leading anaesthetist in Norway. He travels to Gaza every time the Israeli forces brutally bombard Gaza to treat injured women and children for free. This man is a true hero and a shining example of what compassion looks like.
Salute a real one.
