Support Al Aqsa Mosque
On The Importance of Donating to Masjid Al-Aqsa
Maymunah Bint Sa’d (ra) relates that she asked the Prophet (saw):
“O Messenger of Allah, tell us the legal injunction about (visiting) Bayt al-Muqaddas. The Messenger of Allah said: go and pray there. All the cities at that time were effected by war. If you cannot visit it and pray there, then send some oil to be used in the lamps.”
Did you know that Al-Aqsa and The Dome of the Rock are two different mosques in Palestine?
Why is it, that whenever Mosque Al-Aqsa is mentioned in the media, we see pictures of The Dome of the Rock Mosque?
Much of the perception of Al-Aqsa’s history, location, and importance in the Muslim tradition has been deeply undermined and misconstrued.
In today’s world, it’s typical for people to mix-up Al-Aqsa - the second mosque built on Earth- for the Dome of the Rock.
The world’s current understanding of Al-Aqsa poses a grave risk: it leaves the Mosque - and the land it sits on - vulnerable to potential acquisition from Israel.
And if Al-Aqsa were to be destroyed: it would quickly fade from our memories, overshadowed by its more popular neighbor, The Dome of the Rock.
We must act NOW to clear up this potentially hazardous misunderstanding, increase visitation to Al-Aqsa and fight to protect this historical and religious landmark.
Become a supporter of Al-Aqsa and help preserve this piece of Muslim history for the world’s future generations. If you cannot visit the mosque yourself, send your sadaqa to help maintain the third holiest Masjid in Islam.
