Jews arrived in Yathrib (Medina, Saudi Arabia) in the 2nd century AD after they were expelled from Israel by the Romans around 70 A.D. Muhammad, is the founder of Islam, he traveled to the Jewish village of Yathrib in 622 A.D. to attract followers to his new faith. When the Jews of Medina refused to convert to Islam, two of the major Jewish tribes were expelled; in 627, Muslims killed between 600 and 900 men, and divided the Jewish women and children amongst themselves, forcing them to convert to Islam.

Muhammad never set foot is Israel, he died in 632 AD, Medina, Saudi Arabia. The Dome of the Rock located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem was completed in 691 CE at the order of Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik. The Al-Aqsa Mosque was opened in 705 AD. The Farthest Mosque (Al-Masjid-ul-Aqs-a) was built many years after the death of Muhammad. It is utterly impossible that Muhammad visited it on his Night Journey.

When this Surah was revealed 621 AD, the Sacred Mosque already existed in Mecca, but where was the farthest mosque? It was apparently identified with places inside Arabia; either Medina, or a town called Ji’rana, about ten miles from Mecca, which Muhammad visited in 630 AD. Israel had not yet been conquered by Muslim armies, and did not contain a single mosque.

So I guess Medina, Saudi Arabia belongs to the ingenuous Jews.
