فَأَقْسَمَ اللَّهُ بِجَبَلِ دِمَشْقَ، لِأَنَّهُ مَأْوَى عِيسَى عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ

وَبِجَبَلِ بَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ، لِأَنَّهُ مَقَامُ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَامُ

وَبِمَكَّةَ لِأَنَّهَا أَثَرُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَدَارُ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ.

Allah Almighty took the oath of Damascus (by Teen) because it was the abode of Sayyiduna ‘Isa – peace be upon him.

He took the oath of Bait al-Maqdis (by Zaitoon) because it was the abode of many Prophets – peace be upon them.

He took the oath of Makkah Mukarramah because it is the remembrance of Sayyiduna Ibrahim – peace be upon him – and the home of Sayyiduna Muhammad – may Allah send peace and blessings upon him.
