On the last 25th april, I've attended a talk organized by MSAUQ. The purpose was to raise fund for Palestine refugee to support their daily basis needs. Our speaker for this talk was specially invited from Gold Coast Mosque, Imam Zayeed.
He started his talk with,
"When you are in Palestine you will love Quran. Because you will experience what have been told in Quran instead of just reading it"
So he went on his 1st half of the session talking about why Palestine is so important and so special to muslim. He said that most of our sirah, the born of anbiya' and the event of Me'raj happen in Baitul Maqdis or Palestine in general.
He also talked about how determine the locals will defense and stand by their Palestine from the Zionist. Allahuakbar!
He went to Palestine a month ago and he told us all his experience over there. When the curfew being applied to them, any kind of help and supply were stopped. They have no clean water, no medication, no food supply and now live in the tent and eating grass. Any trading for goods or services were prevented and blocked. Nothing can go in and out of Palestine when the 8 meters concrete wall isolated Palestine from the outside world.
One of the story that really touched me,
One guy was weeping when he finished his solah Jumaah. And Imam Zayeed asked,
"Why are you crying my brother?"
"Brother, I left last night and I only reached boundary this morning. It is impossible to come here. I took mountain pathway, and walked for over 18 hours just to perform my Jumuah with the jamaah of Baitul Maqdis. When I came here I feel so happy. It was as if all my fear has gone."
People whose staying not even 10km from there can't even see Baitul Maqdis. They not even allowed to come inb as there are guards everywhere.
He said, "People in Baitulmaqdis really want to enter Masjid Al-Aqsa and perform solah Jumaah there but yet I'm who came from thousand miles away got the privilege like a king to perform my Jumaah in Aqsa just because I have an Australian visa. That guy need to jeopardise his life taking risks of being shooted within 1 and a half day walking journey just to perform his Jumaah inside masjid Al-Aqsa" Mashallah..
We know that now Zionist are excavating and thus weakening the foundation of Masjid Al-Aqsa so that when this masjid collapse, they can build their temple. When this issues was arised in court the Zionist said, "It seems that place (masjid Al-Aqsa) was not in use anymore. So that's why we took it to build our temple over there." So to all muslims, if you have money, courage and determination, do pay a visit to masjid Al-Aqsa and show to the world that we still using it and DO pray inside there.
Rase betuah sangat bile ingat balik yang aku ni pernah jejak kan kaki kat Baitul Maqdis mase buat umrah dengan ayah, nenek, atuk time darjah satu dulu. Alhamdulillah.. Rasenye tahun tu tahun terakhir jemaah umrah dapat buat lawatan ke Baitul Maqdis. Tahun2 lepas tu, rase2nye da x bole masuk sebab isu Palestin-Israel tu la. (Correct me if I'm wrong about this...) Nanti kalau recording talk ni da upload, I'll post up the link so that we can share the benefit. Insyallah..
Lets pray for them,
