a letter to redefine love & peace
Hello brother and sister How are you? We were the ones whom you met at the edge of hallway Behind the wall of the old city
We walked and let our ourselves wet by light rain falling in very fine drops
Left it cold... But we guard our hearts to stay warm in this holy city.
Because we realized that we were in rhe most noble building. Where it remains the sanctuary of the prophets
Speak for the abode of kings, and revelations, and guidance for humankind
It was scene where the The miraculous journey of the holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) from Makkah to Masjid al Aqsa (al Isra) and his ascension through the heavens (al Mi’raj) taken place.
When the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) reached al Aqsa (Haram Shareef), he led prayers in congregation that was attended by all the previous Prophets Alayhis salaam.
al Mi’raj was when Allah Almighty had it in His power to have taken Prophet Muhammad’s travel from Al Aqsa straight up to the heavens
Prophet Muhammad PBUH received the command to pray 50 times reduced to 5 times with the alternating process of facing Allah (SWT) so that his people obtain relief in conducting worship through prayer.
Holy Quran (al Isra:1)
سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَىٰ بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلًا مِّنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الْأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ Glory be to Him Who carried His servant by night from the Holy Mosque (at Makkah) to the Distant Mosque (at Jerusalem), the precincts of which (too) We have blessed, that We might show him some of Our signs. Infact, He alone is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.
was the First Qibla (direction to where Muslims faced when praying Salaah)
Those who recite Quran verses and chapters with pleasure.
To find ourselves in Quran.
It is filled of prayers performed by those who are seeking peace in soul
In Jerusalem, I dressed my wounds and breathed my sorrows And carried the soul in my palm For an Arab Palestine. I will not succumb to the “peaceful solution,” Never lower my flags
Freedom of the holy city took place after the battle of Yarmuk the Muslim forces under the command of Abu Ubaydahr lay siege to Jerusalem. The inhabitants consented to surrender on condition that the Khalifa, Umar ibn al Khattab (ra) came in person.
Umar [ra] traveled to Palestine and formally received the keys to the city in 637 AD. On his arrival, he concluded the famous peace treaty with the people of Holy City. This opened the doors to the Jews, who were denied access for thousands of years and for the first time Jerusalem under Muslim rule became truly an open city to all the three faiths.
Throughout Muslim rule of over one thousand two hundred years of Jerusalem, members of Jewish, Christianity and Islam prospered in Jerusalem. Muslim rule enabled the city to live up to its rightful title of ‘The Holy City’ as it encompassed all the believers in One God to go about their business without any hindrance.
Please let us find peace to pray in our third holiest mosque
The smiles that bring us happiness. Making friends, going to school, eating fruits.
Cant we just live in peace? Like under the rule of Caliph Umar ibn al Khattab (ra)?
We believe every brand new day strengthen our faith and hope.
The sun shines the earth. It warms our hearts to love, to find peace in this blessed land.
To Muslims, Jerusalem houses one of the holiest Mosques, the Masjid-al-Aqsa and represents a place of greatest religious significance. Muslims call to rule over Jerusalem is not driven by colonist, nationalist or material motives. The love of every grain in the Holy City is sacred to Muslims.
