The Prophet (saw) was asked, ‘If one of us cannot visit it (Al-Aqsa), what should we do?’ He (saw) said, ‘Then he should make a gift of some oil to be lit therein [in its lamps]. For indeed the one who gifts this to it will be like the one who has prayed therein [worth 1,000 prayers]’. [Ahmad]

An Incredible Sadaqah Jariyah

The Dome of the Rock Masjid is a part of the Blessed Masjid Al-Aqsa complex, which is a deeply sacred site. SubhanAllah, illuminating any part of Al-Aqsa is an incredible Sadaqah Jariyah worth 1,000 prayers!

Moreover, the Dome of the Rock Masjid is significant in its own right. It is built on the exact spot where the Prophet (saw) ascended through the 7 skies on the miraculous Al-Isra' wal-Mi'raj. SubhanAllah, he (saw) not only met prophets and angels (as) on this journey, he actually met Allah (swt), our Lord and Creator.

Don't miss out on illuminating this space! Take on the challenge and race 7 miles (symbolising the 7 skies) to gain incredible Sadaqah Jariyah rewards!
