Mount Nebo and the Red Dune

Many scholars consider Mount Nebo to be the red dune mentioned by the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, where he said (The angel of death was sent to Moses, peace be upon them both. So when his instrument came to him, he returned to his Lord, and he said: You sent me to a servant who does not want death. He said: Return to him, then say to him he places his hand on the back of a bull, so he has covered with a hand that is covered That is, Lord, then what? He said: Then death, he said: Now, he said: So he asked God to bring him down from the Holy Land by throwing a stone.) Abu Hurairah said: The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “If I had sinned then I would have shown you his grave, beside the road under the red dune.”Dune is sometimes interpreted as a mountain of Almighty saying (The day the earth and the mountains trembled, and the mountains were a dense meadow)In another hadith, the Messenger of God said “(I passed to Moses the night of my captivity in the Red Dune. He stood up to pray in his grave)”And the understanding of the two noble hadiths is that the red dune is close to Jerusalem and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, so that this pure land has been forbidden to enter the children of Israel for forty years. The Torah is that the mountain overlooks the Holy Land, where Moses stood in the Moab Land on Mount Nebo to see the Holy Land while God commanded him not to enter it, so it is most likely that Mount Nebo is the red dune mentioned by the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace.
