FUTURE OF AL AQSA and AL QUDS
#72
AL AQSA IS BEING TURNED INTO A WAR ZONE DURING RAMADAN AGAIN. THIS IS A HORRIFIC AND INTOLERABLE SITUATION NOT ONLY FOR BESIEGED PALESTINIANS BUT IT ATTACKS THE RELIGIOUS SENTIMENTS OF MUSLIMS GLOBALLY.  THIS IS CLEARLY A RESULT OF JEWISH EXTREMISTS COMING TO  POWER IN THE LATEST ISRAELI GOVERNMENT. JEWISH EXTREMISTS AND HARDLINERS WHO SHOULD BE LOCKED UP IN ANY DECENT SOCIETY AND TRIED AS WAR CRIMINALS ARE NOW CALLING THE SHOTS FOR ISRAELI SECURITY MATTERS BODES ILL FOR RELATIONS BETWEEN ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS.  

FURTHER TO LOOKING AT THE EVIDENCE IT IS CLEAR THAT THE ILLEGITIMATE ZIONIST ENTITY IS SEEKING TO CHANGE THE STATUS QUO AT AL AQSA. THE OCCUPATION FORCES ARE RESTRICTING ACCESS TO THE HOLY SITES AND UNDERMINING THE FREEDOM OF RELIGION OF PALESTINIANS. ALSO THEY ARE ARE BRUTALLY ATTACKING ORDINARY PALESTINIANS WITH DISPROPORTIONATE FORCE AND DAMAGING THE MOSQUE DELIBERATELY. 

SINCE THE 1967 WAR THERE IS AN AGREEMENT OR STATUS QUO IN WHICH THE HOLY SITE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WAQF BODY ADMINISTERED BY JORDAN. THEREFORE THE OCCUPYING ZIONIST ISRAELI STATE SHOULD NOT BE INTERFERING IN ANYWAY. YET DESPITE THIS THE ISRAELI MILITARY CONTROL ANY MOVEMENT OF PALESTINIANS INTO OR OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM.  AS PART OF THE STATUS QUO JEWS ARE PERMITTED TO VISIT THE AREA BUT STRICTLY NOT TO PRAY THERE. YET ISRAELI FORCES ARE SEEN TO BE ESCORTING JEWISH ILLEGAL SETTLERS AND EXTREMISTS AND TURNING A BLIND EYE WHEN THEY PRAY THERE .  MANY OF THESE ARE ACTUALLY FOREIGN IMMIGRANTS FROM THE USA AND ELSEWHERE . IN THE CONTEXT OF COLONISATION, AN ILLEGAL OCCUPATION AND BRUTALITY METED OUT,  PALESTINIANS ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO VIOLATIONS HERE AS IT IS ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING SYMBOLS OF THEIR IDENTITY AND NATIONHOOD.

       

OUTSIDERS NEED TO REALISE WHAT IS GOING ON HERE IS  REALLY LIKE NAZIS ON THE RAMPAGE. IMAGINE THE VATICAN OR NOTRE DAME OR ST.PAULS CATHEDRALS BEING OCCUPIED BY AN ALIEN OCCUPYING FORCE AND THEN VISUALISE THESE FORCES RESTRICTING ACCESS TO THE HOLY SITES AND THEN RAIDING THESE HOLY SITES AND BEATING WORSHIPPERS BRUTUALLY AND DAMAGING THE CHURCH.  THIS VIOLATES ALL CIVILISED BEHAVIOUR AND CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM AND NAZISM. IT IS BEING CONTINUED BECAUSE THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY HAS NOT INTERVENED AND THE ISRAELIS HAVE NOT BEEN MADE TO PAY THE PRICE. NO WONDER MANY MUSLIMS ARE FED UP WITH A BIASED HYPOCRITICAL MEDIA WHICH WHITEWASHES TERRORISM COMMITTED AGAINST MUSLIMS AND MUSLIM COUNTRIES.



THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THIS IS ALL GOING TO CHANGE SOON WITH THE COLLAPSE OF THE DOLLAR AND RISE OF A MULTIPOLAR WORLD. THEN WE SHALL SEE WHO CALLS THE SHOTS WITH THE INAUGURATION OF A JUST WORLD ORDER. THE INHUMANE ZIONIST ISRAELI ENTITY IS DIGGING IT'S OWN GRAVE.



IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ARAB AND MUSLIM GOVERNMENTS   TO PRESSURISE THE EXTREME NATIONALIST ISRAELI GOVERNMENT NOT TO CROSS RED LINES.    EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IS THE NEED TO DEFEND PALESTINE AND PALESTINIANS. HOWEVER, IT IS CLEAR THAT INTERNATIONAL INTERVENTION IS REQUIRED AND PALESTINIANS NEED TO REALISE THAT ONLY AN ISLAMIC LIBERATION OF THE HOLY LANDS CAN RESOLVE THIS EXISTENTIAL CRISIS.



THIS WILL MEAN THAT THEIR STRUGGLE FOR SELF DETERMINATION AND LIBERATION HAS TO BE 100% ISLAMIC. THEY NEED TO REALISE THAT PALESTINIAN AND ARAB NATIONALISM HAS FAILED TOTALLY TO DELIVER. INDEED RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW ARAB REGIMES ARE SUPPING WITH THE ZIONIST ISRAELI DEVIL IN NORMALISATION TREATIES INCLUSIVE OF EGYPT, JORDAN, BAHRAIN, UAE, SUDAN AND MOROCCO. WITH OTHERS AT VARIOUS STAGES OF DOING SO. SO THEIR OWN SIDE OR SHOULD IT BE THEIR OWN TRIBE ARE LETTING THEM DOWN.    


GIVEN THESE REALITIES IT LOOKS AS THOUGH ONLY AN GLOBAL ISLAMIC LIBERATION ARMY CAN COME TO THE RESCUE WHICH MOBILISES MUSLIMS GLOBALLY. THIS IS BECAUSE ALL THE EXISTING PLAYERS CAN NOT OR WILL  
NOT DELIVER.   MAY THIS BLESSED RAMADAN 1444 WHICH
THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM WANT TO BESPOIL BE THE HARBINGER OF THE NEW DAWN.

THREE SACRED MOSQUES - HISTORY OF AL AQSA



AL AQSA MOSQUE : WHY IS IT SO SPECIAL IN ISLAM
https://www.trtworld.com/magazine/al-aqs...slam-66850


Israeli troops have attacked Al Aqsa, the third holiest site for Muslims, during several Ramadans. Here is what makes the place so significant within the Islamic faith.

Al Aqsa, which means the "farthest" or "the supreme" in Arabic, is a mosque that lies in the heart of the old city of Jerusalem. Muslims from all sects hold it in high esteem after two main holy sites – Mecca and Medina.

The Al Aqsa is mentioned several times in the Quran. For instance, verse 17:1 in the chapter Al Isra reads:“Glory be to Him who carried His servant by night from Al Masjid Al Haram to Al Masjid Al Aqsa; the environs of which We have blessed, that We might show him some of Our signs. Indeed He is the Hearing, the Seeing.” 

The verse is in relation to Prophet Muhammad's night journey from Medina to Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem, where he performed prayers before a heavenly equine carried him through space to meet with the Divine. 

According to Islamic sources, Prophet Muhammad's meeting with the Divine happened beyond the scientific realm of time and space. He was miraculously transported from Mecca's Masjid Al Haram to Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem, from where he ascended to the heavens. 

The Prophet’s ascension took place during a time when he was facing intense hardship and pain from his tribe and family. He and his companions were being constantly ridiculed, humiliated and oppressed for adhering to the message of God. 

The many verses of the Quran and the hadiths refer to various aspects and features of the Al Aqsa Mosque.

The Quran only mentions two mosques by name, the Masjid Al Haram in Mecca and Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem. It also refers to Al Haram, the surrounding area of the holy Kaaba, where Muslims from all over the world congregate, pray and circle around the house of God. Similarly, the Quran also describes Al Aqsa Mosque as the centre of Bayt al Maqdis, which means “the Holy Land” and “the land of barakah” or the land of salvation and peace. 

In the Quran, Al Aqsa and its surrounding area is described as “blessed”. According to the Islamic worldview, the term “blessed land” means a territory over which God has granted physical and spiritual bounties from which all creation can profit.

Land of the Prophets

Almost every prophet – including those who were born elsewhere – lived in the Holy Land or had a special connection to it, which makes Al Aqsa important in the eyes of Muslims.

Prophet Muhammad has also explained the importance of Al Aqsa in light of previous Abrahamic religions. 

“When Prophet Sulaiman finished building Bayt al Maqdis, he asked Allah for three things: a judgement that was in harmony with His judgment, a dominion that no one after him would have, and that no one should come to this mosque intending to pray there without emerging
free of sin as the day his mother bore him,” the hadith says, quoting the Prophet.

“Two prayers were granted, and I hope that the third was also granted.”

The prophets of the children of Israel are undoubtedly included when Muslims refer to the Holy Land as the "land of the prophets" and according to Islam, they form a continuity in the line of prophecy that ended with Prophet Muhammad.

Another example of a prophet who had a special relationship with the Holy Land and Jerusalem, in particular, is Prophet Abraham. After he destroyed the idols of his people in ancient Babylon, he had to leave the city. He eventually landed in Palestine. In the Quran, there is a mention of his new home in the Holy Land. 

“But We delivered him and his nephew Lot and directed them to the Land which We have blessed for the nations.” (Al Anbiya, 21:71)

Prophet’s miraculous journey by night

The fact that Al Aqsa is the only known location on earth where all the Prophets of Allah worshipped together at the same time, led by the final Prophet Muhammad, gives it additional significance. Every prophet was present in Al Aqsa on this particular night also demonstrates the inclusive aspect of Islam, which the Quran attests to:

“Say, O Believers, ‘We believe in Allah and in that which has been revealed to us; in that which was revealed to Ibrahim, Isma‘il, Ishaq, Ya‘qub, and their descendants; in that which was given to Musa and ‘Isa; and in that which was given to the Prophets from their Lord; We do not make any distinction between any of them…” (al Baqarah, 2:136)

The first Qibla for Muslims

The Quran also talks about the Al Aqsa Mosque as the first Qibla – point of direction for praying – as well as referring to its centrality in events that are to occur before the day of reckoning.

Prophet Muhammed and his companions in the initial days of Islam prayed towards the direction of Al Aqsa. Several hadiths say that a divine commandment came in the middle of his prayers, asking him to turn his face toward the Kaaba. He was the last prophet to face both Masjid Al Aqsa and the Kaaba in one single prayer.

Prophet Muhammed would often encourage his fellow Muslims to take a special journey to visit Al Aqsa, underlining that one prayer at the site is equivalent to five hundred prayers.

“You should not undertake a special journey to visit any place other than the following three mosques with the expectations of getting a greater reward: Mecca’s sacred mosque (Kaaba), my masjid (the prophet’s mosque in Medina), and Masjid Al Aqsa (of Jerusalem),” a hadith quotes the prophet as saying.

In light of these events, Al Aqsa is more than just a piece of land for Muslims worldwide. For Muslims, every Israeli attack on the sanctuary is seen as an attack on Islam.
