Musallah Marwani, is from amongst the Masaajid within Al-Aqsa. It is located entirely underground, and is by far probably the biggest Masjid here. In fact, because the Palestinians are not allowed to perform I'tikaaf in Masjid-Qibly, around 1000 people perform it in Musallah Marwani each year.
The second picture, is considered the Maqaam of Sayyida Maryam, where she would worship Allah in solitude and be given fruits from Jannah. The room is permanently locked, but has an extremely peaceful and calming atmosphere. It also serves as a reminder, of the great women in our tradition, and the examples they have left, such that Allah honours them by mention in the Quran, and till today people visit their places of rest. Indeed this is true honour.
