View looking northeast at the "Dome of the Prophet" (= Qubbat al–Nabi).  This is a single person prayer area built in 1539 "to mark the site where Muhammad led the prophets in prayer before his ascension into Heaven."

The large umbrellas in the background shaded worshipers during Friday Prayers during the month of Ramadan.

The capitals on these eight columns look very much like a capital that was on the debris pile east of the Dome of the Rock platform.
