  • Description

    IN THE MOSLEM WORLD, LAST FRIDAY WAS GOOD FRIDAY -- THE LAST FRIDAY OF THE HOLY FASTING MONTH OF RAMADAN -- AND IT WAS TO JERUSALEM THAT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MOSLEMS TURNED ON FRIDAY AS A PLACE OF WORSHIP. THE DOME OF THE ROCK MOSQUE, ALSO KNOWN AS OMAR'S MOSQUE, WAS ESPECIALLY A PLACE OF PILGRIMAGE, AS IT IS CONSIDERED SECOND ONLY TO MECCA AS A HOLY MOSLEM CENTRE.

    MOSLEMS VISIT OMAR'S MOSQUE FROM ALL OVER JORDAN AND OTHER NEARBY ARAB COUNTRIES, ESPECIALLY AS IT IS CONSIDERED A DOUBLE VIRTUE TO WORSHIP AT THIS PARTICULAR MOSQUE ON THE MOSLEM GOOD FRIDAY. RAMADAN ITSELF IS SAID TO BE THE MONTH IN WHICH GOD INSPIRED THE PROPHET MOHAMMED TO WRITE THE HOLY BOOK, THE KORAN, AND IN WHICH MOSLEMS FAST FROM SUNRISE TO SUNSET DURING EACH DAY.
