Note About the book  

The Al-Buraq Wall was the original name of what is known today as the Mughrabi Wall. It was given the name of the Al-Buraq Wall because the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) tied the buraq, his winged steed, which carried him from the Sacred Mosque (in Mecca) to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to this wall during his Night Journey. He then dismounted it and entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque from a gate that was accordingly named the Gate of the Prophet. However, this gate subsequently became known as the Mughrabi Gate.
