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?
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.
