Why is Palestine important to Muslims?

Allah Almighty sent about 1,24,000 Prophets (May peace be upon them all) for the guidance of humans to the right path. The Muslims believe in all these holy Prophets, Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) being the last of them. Most of the Prophes were born, and are buried in Palestine. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) started his heavenly journey from Masjid-i-Aqsa situated in Jerusalem. The Muslims consider this land very sacred, thought, it is also considered sacred by the Jews and the Christians.
