Cii Radio| Ayesha Ismail| 26 April 2017| 28 Rajab 1438
Head of Supreme Islamic Commission, Ekrema Sabri, said that Jerusalem is as holy for all Muslims as Mecca and Madina, calling for the city to be protected from increasing policies of Judaisation, Quds Net reported yesterday.
Speaking to Quds Net, Sabri said: “The city of Jerusalem is being exposed to increasing Israeli Judaisation targeting all of its Islamic sites. These actions are targeting the Islamic identity of the city.”
All Muslims all over the world are responsible for saving the holy city and protecting Al-Aqsa Mosque, where the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) led all prophets in a night prayer.
The senior Palestinian Mufti reiterated that zionists are planning to “seize” Al-Aqsa Mosque. “Therefore, it is calling for all people to protect it.”
He also stressed that Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque “must remain the centre of the Palestinian cause,” noting this is a religious duty for all Muslims.
