I will be visiting Jerusalem in a week. Is Israeli government allow to pray in Masjid Al-Aksa? Can I go there freely? Is there anything I should know before I go there?

This question came from our site for Muslims, experts in Islam, and those interested in learning more about Islam.
If you are able to enter the country, i.e. if they let you in, then you will be able to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque. In principle, as a Muslim it is much easier to access the Temple Mount that as a non Muslim. You have more entry points at your disposal, and you can avoid the queues at the al-Magrhib bridge. Once you are inside you can of course pray. The contrary would be strange in a place like this. Allahu Akbar.
