Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Some 292 extremist Israeli Jewish settlers raided, on Sunday, Al Aqsa Mosque in the Occupied city of Jerusalem, under the heavy protection from the Israeli police, Islamic Waqf of the holy city said.

According to the Islamic Waqf, the Jewish settlers raided the Islamic holy site through the Al-Maghariba Gate and performed Talmudic rituals inside the Sanctuary Yards.

Since 2003, the Israeli Occupation authorities have been allowing settlers into Al-Aqsa Mosque almost every day, except on Friday – the Muslim day of rest and worship.

The Islamic Waqf has repeatedly described the settlers’ presence in Al-Aqsa Mosque as “provocative”, saying that Palestinian worshippers and guards of Al-Aqsa Mosque “feel uncomfortable with the presence of Israeli police and settlers touring the Islamic holy site”.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem, home of Al-Aqsa Mosque, in 1967 in a move never recognised by the international community.
