Muslim scholars call for support for Al-Aqsa Mosque

February 15, 2016

The secretary general of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) called on Tuesday for Muslims all over the world to designate next Friday as a day of solidarity with Al-Aqsa Mosque, Anadolu has reported. Dr Ali Al-Qaradaghi said that Muslim scholars should use the day to explain how the Israeli occupation authorities are violating the Noble Sanctuary, including their plans to destroy the mosque and build the “Temple of Solomon”.

In addition, Al-Qaradaghi called on Muslims to sponsor the Palestinians who stay within the sanctuary in order to protect Al-Aqsa Mosque and undermine the Israeli plans. At least 12,000 need sponsorship of around $600 a month. This would, he explained, allow them to spend as much time as possible inside the mosque and thwart Israel’s “Judaisation” of the sanctuary.

The mass media should be utilised to shed light on the Palestinian issue, added the IUMS official, as he called on writers and intellectuals to interact positively with the issue of Al-Aqsa Mosque at all levels.

Extremist Jewish settlers and Israeli ministers enter Al-Aqsa Mosque forcibly almost every day, escorted by the police and army. They perform Talmudic rituals and attempt to impose a de facto partitioning of the mosque.
