temple mountA Brief Guide to Al Haram Al Sharif Jerusalem – 1929 (9 pages)

This small pamphlet, published by the Supreme Moslem Council (with the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, at its head), provides historical and location information about the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, which Moslems call Haram Al Sharif. The fact that this Moslem-written document admits to the fact that this site was where Solomon’s Temple stood is noteworthy, since in recent years, a number of prominent Moslem leaders and clerics have denied the legitimacy of Jewish claims that the Temple Mount is a place of great historical importance to the Jews.
