Al-Quds (Jerusalem)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gra­cious, the Most Mer­ci­ful.

As-salā­mu ‘alaykum wa-rah­mat­ul­lāhi wa-barakā­tuh (Peace, Bless­ings & Mer­cy of Allah be upon You).

This state­ment is being issued on the 07th of Decem­ber 2017 and super­sedes all pre­vi­ous state­ments on the sub­ject.

سُبۡحَـٰنَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَسۡرَىٰ بِعَبۡدِهِۦ لَيۡلاً۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡحَرَامِ إِلَى ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡأَقۡصَا ٱلَّذِى بَـٰرَكۡنَا حَوۡلَهُ ۥ لِنُرِيَهُ ۥ مِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِنَآ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلۡبَصِيرُ

[17:1] Exalt­ed is He who took His Ser­vant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al- Aqsa, whose sur­round­ings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hear­ing, the See­ing.

Al-Quds (Jerusalem) is one of the most holi­est cities of Islam and we agree with the MCB that this sends a clear mes­sage of hos­til­i­ty to the Mus­lims around the world.  This is not a Mid­dle east or an Arab-Israeli issue but it is an issue which affects over a bil­lion Mus­lims, world­wide.

We also echo the sen­ti­ments of Justin Wel­by (Arch­bish­op of Can­ter­bury), “The sta­tus quo of the City of Jerusalem is one of the few sta­ble ele­ments of hope for peace and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion for Chris­tians, Jews and Mus­lims in the Holy Lands. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”

We also note that the local church­es in Jerusalem have advised Pres­i­dent Trump to main­tain the Inter­na­tion­al sta­tus of Jerusalem.

We put forth that this step by the Trump Admin­is­tra­tion is in vio­la­tion of UN Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil Res­o­lu­tions 242 (1967), 338 (1973), 446 (1979), 452 (1979), 465 (1980), 476 (1980), 478 (1980), 1397 (2002), 1515 (2003), 1850 (2008) and 2334 (2016) which stat­ed:

…Reaf­firms that the estab­lish­ment by Israel of set­tle­ments in the Pales­tin­ian ter­ri­to­ry occu­pied since 1967, includ­ing East Jerusalem, has no legal valid­i­ty and con­sti­tutes a fla­grant vio­la­tion under inter­na­tion­al law and a major obsta­cle to the achieve­ment of the two-State solu­tion and a just, last­ing and com­pre­hen­sive peace…

Unequivocal support for Palestinians:

It has been a 100 years since the British For­eign Sec­re­tary Arthur Balfour’s Dec­la­ra­tion. Pales­tini­ans have been denied jus­tice in their own home­land, since. Despite Inter­na­tion­al con­dem­na­tion, the abuse of Pales­tini­ans, ille­gal set­tle­ments and their mur­der has car­ried on unabat­ed by the state of Israel.

We, along with the British and Inter­na­tion­al com­mu­ni­ty remain com­mit­ted to the cause of Pales­tini­ans who are being oppressed in their home­land. We call upon the British and the Inter­na­tion­al com­mu­ni­ty to stand­by and assist the Pales­tini­ans and put mea­sures in place to imme­di­ate­ly stop the human right abus­es being car­ried out in the Holy lands.

From Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem:

We were deeply dis­ap­point­ed to hear of Pres­i­dent Trump’s deci­sion to move the Amer­i­can embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem, thus recog­nis­ing it as the cap­i­tal of Israel. This is a trag­ic and regret­table deci­sion by the US Admin­is­tra­tion and a seri­ous blow to the peace process. The Mus­lim world and the Pales­tini­ans have trust­ed the Amer­i­cans to be non­par­ti­san in the peace process and this is a ham­mer blow to the Amer­i­can cred­i­bil­i­ty. This will only embold­en those in Israel who are opposed to the peace process and deliv­ers no ben­e­fit to any side. It is in the inter­ests of both Israel the Pales­tini­ans to stay com­mit­ted to the peace process, to stay the course and to con­tin­ue to make progress. It will also desta­bilise the Mid­dle East and sub­se­quent­ly the world.

Violation of UN Resolutions

We would like to assert that the deci­sion by the Trump admin­is­tra­tion is in clear vio­la­tion mul­ti­ple UN res­o­lu­tions such as 242 (1967), 338 (1973), 446 (1979), 452 (1979), 465 (1980), 476 (1980), 478 (1980), 1397 (2002), 1515 (2003), 1850 (2008) and 2334 (2016), some of land­mark res­o­lu­tions are as fol­lows:

We advise our fel­low Mus­lims in the Unit­ed King­dom to con­sid­er the fol­low­ing plan:

Spiritual Action Plan for Muslims in Britain:

We are Mus­lims. There­fore, our first reac­tion in any sit­u­a­tion should be to reflect upon our actions and to turn to Allah Ta’ala in seek­ing for­give­ness and to beseech Him for his assis­tance and help. We urge all Mus­lims in Britain to repent and make sin­cere Dua to Allah Ta’ala to help the Pales­tini­ans

Encour­age your fam­i­ly, friends and com­mu­ni­ty to per­form indi­vid­ual prayers and even organ­ise Qunut Nazi­lah in your com­mu­ni­ties.

Spend your mon­ey and give Sadaqah in addi­tion to your Duas to invite the Mer­cy of Allah Ta’ala.

Change your life for the bet­ter and do your best to come clos­er to Allah Ta’ala by ful­fill­ing His com­mand­ments and fol­low­ing the Sun­nah of Prophet Muham­mad (Peace be upon Him).

Political Action Plan for Muslims in Britain:

This short arti­cle will, Insha’Allah, walk you through the process of engag­ing with polit­i­cal and oth­er organ­i­sa­tions, and your MP urg­ing them to express your wish­es in Par­lia­ment.

Dear Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al,
