The evergreen actress Reema Khan takes a trip to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. She has shared the details about her trip in her Instagram posts. The glimpses of her trip show the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is the third holiest site in Islam.

Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world and known for its tradition, history and religious significance. “Jerusalem is not only very holy to us – Muslims, but also is a very holy place for the monotheist religions of the world”, says Reema.

Our visit to Al-Aqsa Masjid (the 3rd holiest site in Islam) and Dome of the Rock. (27th RAJAB - SHAB E MAIRAJ) Thank ALLAH for the opportunity to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque last month and pray inside the Dome of the Rock –from where our last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) ascended to heaven on Shab-e-Mairaj. We also prayed at the place where before the ascension, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) led the prayer which was followed by one lac, 24,000 prophets. The journey to the heaven was accompanied by Hazrat Jibrael (AS) and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) met many prophets at each stage of the heaven including Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and Hazrat Adam (AS). That night Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) saw several miracles from God and was instructed to have Muslims pray and fast. Initially, he was ordained 50 times a day prayers but Hazrat Musa (AS) advised that it was too much for the Ummah, and so Prophet went back and eventually came back with the 5 times a day prayer that we are supposed to do. This was a lifetime opportunity and we cannot but thank God-Almighty for this “Saadat”. Also, feel indebted to our friend who arranged it all. Jerusalem is not only very holy to us – Muslims, but also is a very holy place for the monotheist religions of the world. Unlike, what we see in pictures and the calendars -the Golden Dome which is used as an emblem of whenever Jerusalem or Al Aqsa Mosque is mentioned, are in fact two separate structures standing across from each other and within the outer walls of the huge compound. We were fortunate to pray inside Al-Aqsa mosque and also very lucky to go inside the Dome and see the “Rock” – on which we believe, our last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), ascended to heaven on the 27th day of the Islamic month of Rajab. Rajab is the 7th month of Islamic Calendar and 27th of Rajab is being observed today this year.

After Reema posted the pictures on social media, a lot of people poured in questions regarding her entry in Jerusalem as Pakistan forbids its citizens from going to Israel and all Pakistani passports bear the inscription "This passport is valid for all countries of the World except Israel."

A lot of people are assuming that she traveled on her American passport. But in the end, all we just have to say is that she is very lucky to visit the beautiful historical city and have experience of her lifetime.
