By Shaykh Muhammad Salih Al Uthaymīn—may Allah have mercy upon him
The following is an excerpt taken from a Friday sermon by Shaykh Al Uthaymīn entitled:
‘What occurred during the history of Masjid Al Aqsa’
It is the Masjid in the holy blessed land, the residence of the father of the Prophets Ibrahim Al Khaleel, and the residence of his sons with the exception of Ismael. It is the residence of Ishaq and Yaqub, until Yaqub and his sons left and went to Egypt to his son Yusuf. They remained there (Egypt) until they became a nation alongside the Copts, meaning the Pharaohs; those who severely punished them. This was until Musa peace be upon him took them out fleeing from the people of Pharaoh.
