  1. "Prophet Daud (as) began the rebuilding of Masjid Al Aqsa"

    It's very strange that David(Daud) who was a jew which talked Hebrew will call a place Masjid Al Aqsa which is Arabic words...

  2. By the same logic Shabtay, neither could prophets Adam, Abraham, or Soliman, may God's peace and raise be upon them all, have done so, and neither could Abraham have built the Ka'bah. The fact of the matter is that names in Arabic are descriptors; every Arabic name is a meaningful word that CAN be translated to another word. Al-Aqsa simply means the farthest. It makes all the sense in the world that the prayer place (masjid, which is translated: mosque, means either a place or time of prayer, and in our case we're referring to a place) that the aforementioned prophets have established for people was referred to as the farthest mosque because the followers of prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him, were in Mekkah at the time and the only other established prayer place on Earth (before prophet Muhammad's advent) was the Sanctified mosque in Mekkah, which was conversely quite near.
    Apart from that, Hebrew and Arabic are both Semitic languages that sound very similar if you pay close attention to them. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that the original Hebrew name of this established prayer place would sound quite similar to the Arabic. You find, for instance, that Bekkah, which is the valley containing Mekkah, was called Bekkah in the Bible, although it's not Arabic. Also prophet Muhammad was called Ahmed in the Bible.
    Finally, I have to make it clear that there's no such thing as a Jewish prophet; all prophets preached Islam. Believers of all times refer to themselves as Muslim and God states in the Qur'an that the only religion He'll accept is Islam. Onnce again, Muslim and Islam are meaningful words in Arabic. Islam means complete submission. It's a concept that is not exclusive to present day Muslims or Arabs. Prophet Abraham submitted to God by doing something that a present-day Muslim is prohibited from doing: sacrificing his own son. The difference between the religion preached by every prophet and the other is not in the belief itself. The change is always in the practice, for no reason other than making submission to God harmonious with the specific conditions of Earthly living of the time and place of a given prophet's message. The fact that the practice God had ordained for each people was different is clearly stated in the Qur'an and examples of it are given repeatedly. One such example is that of prophet Jesus, may God's praise and peace be upon him, whose grandparents, by your terms, would be Jews. And if you were not to believe that he was a prophet, take prophets David and Soliman. You say that they were all Jewish. Yet, you would not say that they preached a religion that was different from the one Moses, may God's praise and peace be upon him, preached, right?
