 سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَىٰ بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلًا مِّنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الْأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ

Glorified (and Exalted) be He (Allah) [above all that (evil) they associate with Him] Who took His slave (Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم) for a journey by night from Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah) to Al-Masjid-al-Aqsa (in Jerusalem), the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed, in order that We might show him (Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم) of Our Ayat (proofs, evidence, lessons, signs, etc.). Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer

Our beloved messenger peace be upon him has told us how the believers should feel toward one another and with each other, as in the hadith of Al-Nu`maan ibn Bashir may Allah be please with him reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim where the messenger peace be upon him said: The analogy of the believers in their love, mercy and kindness toward each other is like one body; “ If any part of this body aches, the whole body will suffer.” Today, our Muslim brothers and sisters are suffering all around the world, yet many of us do not even know, and many, if they know, do not care. Not only are the Muslims suffering but so are the Holy Sites. Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, the third of the holiest sites in Islam and the first qiblah (direction of Salah) in Islam has been under attack for many years. However, lately the attack and transgressions have been escalated by the occupying government of Israel. As reported by the Palestinian organizations, which are focused on dealing with such issues, the structural stability of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa is at risk due to the major construction and digging that is currently taking place right underneath the masjid. The rationale behind this construction is to find remnants of the “Jewish Temple”. Their attempts to find these have be unsuccessful and will remain unsuccessful.
 
This is a call upon every Muslim, to act regarding this threat towards our masjid; the masjid from which our messenger peace be upon him had traveled to the heavens on the famous night of Al-Israa wal-Mi`raaj. Perhaps you are wondering, “What can I do”?  We must learn more about the situation, and then educate others, our families, friends and co-workers. Lectures, blogs, emails and newsletters are very helpful instruments for the cause. Before, during and after all that is praying to Allah to protect his holy places because he is the only one who can do that.    And Allah knows better.
