Muslim Hands is hosting an exclusive 10 day tour in support of Masjid Al Aqsa and the people of Palestine.
Join us on our 'Al-Aqsa: Save Our History' Iftar dinners in Harrow, Birmingham, Manchester, East London, Luton, Acton, Sheffield, Bradford, South London and Slough this Ramadan (16th June to 25th June).
We have an inspiring line up of amazing talent, knowledge and experience who will all be rejoicing in aid of this cause that touches everyone’s heart. The evening will be hosted by Khaleel Muhammad and will include an energetic and passionate talk by Shaykh Riad Ouarzazi from Canada, nasheeds by Ehsaan Tahmid and Quran recitation by world renowned Qari Youssef Edghouch from the United States.
The Al Aqsa Mosque, which served as the first Qibla and the place from which the Prophet (PBUH) ascended into the heavens, is second only to Makkah and Madinah as one of the holiest sites in Islam.
Thousands of Muslims visit Al Aqsa every single day and it plays a central role in the religious life of the local community. As such, the site requires continuing maintenance.
Muslim Hands has been working with the Al Aqsa Waqf since 2008. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have so far:
• Provided the site with a brand new public announce system.
• Upgraded the dilapidated toilet facilities.
• Rehabilitated the sewage infrastructure.
• Replaced the paving stones of external walkways and around the Dome of the Rock.
This year Muslim Hands will be working on a brand new Wudu area for women located right next to the Al-Musalla Al-Qibli which will make the mosque much more accessible to female worshippers.
Following the Sunnah and lighting Al Aqsa, this Ramadan we are appealing to donors to fulfil this Sunnah and help us replace Al Aqsa’s thirty-year old lighting system with safe, efficient lighting for the Khataniya library, corridors and the Al-Musalla Al-Qibli.
“Maimunah bint Sa’d the freed slave of Prophet (saw) asked 'O Prophet of Allah, inform us about Bait Al-Maqadis (Al Quds).' The Prophet (saw) replied, 'It is the land of resurrection and congregation. Visit it and pray in it. For indeed prayer in it is like a thousand prayers in other than it'. She asked 'If one of us cannot visit it, what should we do?' The Prophet (saw) said, 'Then he should make a gift of some oil to be lit in the lamps. For indeed the one who gifts this to (Masjid Al-Aqsa) will be like the one who has prayed therein'. (Ahmad)
