Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron - Palestine

 

The enclosure is known to Muslims as the Ibrahimi Mosque, as Abraham is a revered prophet of Islam who, according to the Qur’an, built the Kaaba in Mecca with his son Ishmael. After the conquest of the city by Umar, this holy place was “simply taken over from the Jewish tradition” by the new rulers; the Herodian enclosure was converted into a mosque and placed under the control of a waqf. The waqf continues to control and maintain most of the site.;
