And (remember) when We gave Musa (Moses) the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)] and the criterion (of right and wrong) so that you may be guided aright”. (Quran 2:53)

Prophet Musa (pbuh) was sent by Allah (swt) to the Pharaoh of Egypt and the Israelites for guidance. Prophet Musa (pbuh) holds a special place in Islam, with the holy book of Towrat having been revealed to him. Prophet Musa (pbuh) is mentioned more times than any other prophet in the Quran.

Maqam El-Nabi is located south of Jericho in the occupied West Bank. According to tradition, Sultan Salahhudin Ayyubi dreamt that Prophet Musa (pbuh) was buried here, and had a mosque built on this site in his honour. The Maqam is one of the largest religious architectural complexes in Palestine.
