The Way to Free Palestine

The Way to Free Palestine

Palestine and its holy sites have a key role in the Islamic strategy. It enjoys a good status before Allah Almighty and His last messenger. Palestine has religious and political central specialties in the Muslim world which cannot be found in any other country. But despite these unique particularities, it has been suffering from problems and dilemmas on the way of liberation. The Palestine issue is one of the most important issues the Muslim nation takes it seriously. The elites and intellectuals of this nation have always paid attention to this subject; because the avidities of the oppressors are endless.
Palestine concludes many holy sites and sanctuaries. It has been the destination of prophets and was colored by the blood of martyrs. The first Qibla of Muslims is located there and it is the third holy site of them. This is the earth where the prophet Mohammad PBUH was carried by night and he offered prayers over there as an imam of all prophets and messengers.
Palestine should not be forgotten and neglected, however we might be busy with lots of activities. If we deal with the issue of Palestine seriously and actively, the Islamic nation will be united like a beehive struggling for the liberation of Palestine. Then no one will find time to blame others and look up for their weaknesses; rather everyone will be rectifying his/her mistakes and abnormalities and making himself prepared to free the Muslim countries actually or by a studied real strategy.
In Palestine, the Arabs have learnt the severity of the challenge. They face their main issue and there is no any way to neglect it. Being a nation and Ummah, we are so away from refining and improving the danger and its different angles. We are supposed to live with the issue and recognize the status of this blessing earth well. We should know its history and changes during the past centuries.

[17:1] In another place Allah says: and We saved him and Lot and brought him to the land upon which We had bestowed Our blessings for all the people of the world. [21: 71] There is a famous Hadith narrated by Abu-Hurairah in Sahih Bukhari: “Do not set out on a journey except for three Mosques i.e. Al-Masjid-AI-Haram, the Mosque of Allah’s Messenger and the Mosque of Al-Aqsa, (Mosque of Jerusalem).”
