Haram vs Holy (Muqaddasah)

This is an interesting article on what is Haram and what is Holy:

Today we have these words: Quds, Al-Quddus, Muqaddas and Muqaddasah

Quds stems from the root letters QDS or qaaf, daal and seen.

Al-Quds is a company based in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. It is named after al-Quds.

Al-Quds is Baitulmuqaddis where there are 2 important structures - the Blue Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

Blue Mosque is Masjid Kubah Biru.

The Dome of the Rock has a golden dome and was where the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. took off to meet with Allah SWT on Israk and Mikraj.
