The Dome of Moses (قبة موسى), also known as the Dome of the Tree, is located on the Mosa terrace, in the middle of western squares of Al-Aqsa Mosque Al-Mubarak, between the Chain Door west, and the Grammar Dome East. It was probably built by al-Ashraf Musa, the last Ayyubid prince (emir) of Homs, a city located in the central region of modern-day Syria.
circa 1250 CE
The Qubat Musa is situated immediately after entering from Chain Gate, Temple Mount, on the western flank. It is built on a Mastaba, in the middle of the western squares of al-Aqsa Mosque, between as-Silsila Gate west, and an-Nahwiyyah Dome east. It’s situated towards the northeast of the Dome of the Rock. King Najm al din Ayoubbi had it built, in 647 Hj. (1249 CE). It is a large square room; six meters long and six meters wide. It has six windows, topped by a dome, and has a cantilever outside, and northern entrance, and the terrace surrounded by another mihrab of a high wall. In the past, it was also called the Dome of the Tree; after a huge palm tree that was next to it. Also, it was called the Wide Dome. Today, it is used as a house for memorizing the Holy Quran, where it was the first house of the Holy Quran in Palestine, and still groups graduate from it after learning Tajweed types.
