The Prophet (s) said, "How blessed is Al-Sham"!
The Companions (r) asked, "Why is that"? The Messenger (s) replied,
"I see the Angels of Allah spreading their wings over Al-Sham". Ibn
Abbas (r) added, "And the Prophets lived therein. There is not a single
inch in Al-Quds (Jerusalem) where a Prophet has not prayed or an Angel not
stood". (Tirmidhi, Ahmad)
