Al-Quds: The Olive City (Folder)

Al-Quds The Olive City
Al-Quds (Jerusalem), the olive city, has a special position in the hearts of Muslims and all people of the world. Al-Quds' religious sites and ancient places are among the most visited areas of the world. People of all faiths have great concerns about this blessed area, where many prophets lived or visited.

Moreover, fair and good people of the world are worried about Al-Quds and its historical places. Unfortunately, pains of Al-Quds and its people are increasing every day under the atrocities of the inhuman forces of the Israeli occupation.

Israelis Want To Pray in Al-Aqsa: Group

In fact, Al-Quds has been eaten up throughout years since the beginning of the 20th century by the constant Judaization efforts under the protection and custody of the Israeli government. Many Muslims have their eyes on Al-Aqsa Mosque waylaying in case of any damage, yet, few are keeping an eye on the David's Star being drawn all over the city under the darkness of a dumb international community.

Given that, the Shari`ah page is launching a special coverage about Al-Quds to raise awareness of this significant city and the dangers surrounding it.

Moreover, the expected roles of Muslims and all people of the world towards Al-Quds will be highlighted.

A Legitimate Claim to Al-Buraq Wall?

Jewish worshippers pray at the wall, which they revere as part of a biblical temple. It forms part of a raised esplanade that Jews call Temple Mount.

Emotions Are Not Enough

Being concerned about your brothers is not an emotional reaction whereby one expresses only sympathetic feelings without any practical constructive steps.
