Its been years since Israeli Forces have attacked Palestine and have captured most of the parts. Due to they being funded by the US the issue never rose in the UN. Day by day more and more men women and even children are being murdered in their own homes and their own safe places. The powerful never had pity on the children or the aged they killed everyone one coming in their way.

Israeli forces arrested Sheikh Ikrama Sabri, the preacher of the first Qibla of Masjid Al-Aqsa and head of the Supreme Islamic Institution, from his home on Friday. The Saudi news agency SPA quoted Al-Assari media as saying that Israeli troops stormed the house of Sheikh Ikrama Sabri in occupied Jerusalem on Friday and arrested him.

Today, several Israeli CID officers and police officers suddenly broke into the house. He ordered Sheikh Ikrama to wear plain clothes to arrest him regardless of his status and age.

Wife’s Statement on the Matter

Two weeks ago, Israeli police raided our house, she said. Israeli officials have threatened to arrest anyone who makes statements about the Masjid Al-Aqsa.

Israeli Official’s on the Matter

An Israeli official refused to comment on the opening of the Masjid Al-Aqsa for worshipers, threatening that in the future they would only be able to see the Masjid Al-Aqsa through pictures. They will be removed from Masjid Al-Aqsa.

The Reason of the Arrest

The sources say that Sheikh Ikrama Sabri was arrested for opening the doors of Masjid Al-Aqsa to worshipers. It may be recalled that Al-Emarat Al-Youm had reported on May 27 with reference to the Islamic Endowment in Jerusalem that the doors of Masjid Al-Aqsa will be opened for the worshipers from Sunday, May 31 with the security measures prescribed to prevent the Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Sheikh Omar Al-Qaswani Take on the Matter

Masjid Al-Aqsa was closed to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and to protect worshipers from the deadly virus. Sheikh Omar Al-Qaswani, director of Masjid Al-Aqsa in Al-Quds, said that the doors of Masjid Al-Aqsa will be opened for worshipers on Sunday May 31, 2020 at Fajr. The Masjid was closed for two (2) months due to Coronavirus. Al-Qaswani said there was no age restriction on worshipers, but all worshipers had to take precautions.

Authorities Clarified the Case

The Endowment Authority has clarified that there is no restriction on the number of worshipers and their identity cards regarding attendance at Masjid Al-Aqsa. Al-Quds’s endowment agency decided on March 23 to close Masjid Al-Aqsa to worshipers on the recommendation of religious leaders and health officials.

From then until now, only security guards and endowment officials were praying in Masjid Al-Aqsa, while prayers with adhan and congregation were being photographed through the internet. May Allah (SWT) help us in fighting with the evil and this deadly virus. May his Mercy be upon us and HE allows us to enter Masjid Al-Aqsa Masjid e Nabawi and Masjid Al Haram.
