Mohammed and Jesus at Jerusalem

Off the top of my head ... scripture said that the Jewish Prophet would arrive at Jerusalem on a donkey. In this scene Jesus approached the walls on a donkey, with Mohammed on a camel (to the fore of him). Both ascended to Heaven from the city.

This scene was popular in Islamic art, and the best example, of which I still do not have an image, is in the Parliamentary Library in Tehran.
