Why did Netanyahu, a Zionist Jewish war criminal, despatch troops with shoes to storm the Al Aqsa mosque during the holy month of Ramadan and attack worshippers knowing very well that would provoke Muslims with violent response worldwide?
It is sheer racist arrogant and knowing very well the United and Europe remain fully behind and Arab tyrants would not lift a finger to defend Aqsa Mosque or Palestinians,
Masjid Al Aqsa, the first direction of Muslims, second oldest masjid after Makkah and the third most important holy place in Islam after Makka and Madina, is located in the city of Al Jerusalem, known to Muslims worldwide as Al Quds (The Holy) or Baitul Muqaddis (The House of Holiness).
The historical significance of Masjid Al-Aqsa lies in the fact that the early Muslims turned towards it in prayer for a period of around seventeen months after the Hijra or migration to Medina in 624 AC.
Masjid Al Aqsa is the place where Prophet Ibrahim, the patriarch of all the three great monotheistic faiths -Judaism, Christianity and Islam -prayed. It was in this very same Masjid that Allah resurrected and assembled all the prophets and messengers for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to lead the prayer with them during his divine night journey to the heavens.
Allah chose this Masjid because of its purity, nobility, distinction and highest standing. The ascension of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), from the rock beneath the Qubbat Al Sakhra Mosque known as Dome of the Rock to heaven remains the loftiest spiritual event in the history of Islam and highlights the importance of Jerusalem for Muslims
A prominent Israeli orthodox rabbi Melchior has charged that “People around the world don’t understand; commentators think we can ‘win’, but this is about al-Aqsa,” “When Israeli police trample into al-Aqsa with boots and stop one of the holiest prayers, it is one of the gravest transgressions of Islam,” says. “This you don’t do.”
