Why do we go to the Quds Day demonstration?

Quds, the first Qibla and the cause of Muslim unity 

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) prayed towards the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the time he reached the mission until seventeen months after the migration to Madinah, and it was in the second year of the migration that the Qiblah of the Muslims was changed from Jerusalem to the Kaaba. For this reason, Quds is not only a symbol and a holy place, but also a place that is the axis of Muslim unity. Today, Quds is also the center of unity among Muslims. Now this first Qibla has been exposed to occupation and being swallowed up. 

 

Quds, the third holiest mosque in Islam.

In Islamic traditions, Al-Aqsa Mosque is mentioned as the third holiest mosque in Islam, after Masjid al-Haram and Masjid al-Nabi. In some Islamic traditions, the prayer in Aqsa is equivalent to fifty thousand prayers. In Islamic narrations, it is strongly recommended to attend this mosque and maintain it. 

 

Quds, the place of Miraj of the Prophet of Islam 

One of the most important events in the history of the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is the ascension event. In this event, which is also mentioned in Surah Isra' verse 1, the Prophet was transferred from Masjid al-Haram to Masjid al-Aqsa by God's permission and from there ascended to meet the Almighty. This important event - which, in addition to the mention of the Holy Qur'an, has a detailed hadith about its events in Islamic traditions - took place in Al-Aqsa Mosque, and it makes its position higher in this respect, and shows how important and valuable this place is to God Almighty. 

 

The oppression of a nation in Jerusalem 

What was mentioned above included the importance of the city of Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque in Islam. But Quds Day is not only dedicated to Quds, but as Imam Khomeini (RA) said, Quds Day is the day of Islam and is not only dedicated to Quds. One of the features of this day is support for the oppressed Palestinian nation. A nation whose land has been looted. Throughout the history of mankind, there has been no record of such cruelty. Quds, as the capital of Palestine, symbolizes the identity of Palestine and all the Palestinians who want to destroy the identity of a nation by swallowing it.
