Bani-Israil Qaraim Muslim Flag of Al-Isra
The flag of Al-Isra(Israel) is centered with an 8 pointed star known as the Shield of Abraham. It represents the 8th day Abrahamic Covenant, the 8 sons of Abraham and King David being the 8th son of Jesse. It also illustrates the 8 sides of the Al-Aqsa Masjid which now serves as the restoration of the Solomonic Temple which was an 8 sided structure as well. The name Al-Isra which translates as Israelites refers to the Prophet Muhammad's journey and ascension beyond the 7th heaven from the holiest site of the Israelites in Jerusalem being the location of the former Solomonic Temple known as Beyt Maqdis. The 12 stars above and below the Abrahamic Shield represents the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 tribes of Ishmael. The Blue and White colors of the flag represent the color of the sky and the ascension of both the Prophets Jacob and Muhammad who were taken to the 8th heaven of Divinity known as Israel (Firdawz).
