About Supporters of alAqsa
Did you know that Al-Aqsa and The Dome of the Rock are two different mosques in Palestine?
Why is it, that whenever Mosque Al-Aqsa is mentioned in the media, we see pictures of The Dome of the Rock Mosque?
Driven by Zionist agenda, much of the perception of Al-Aqsa’s history, location, and importance in the Muslim tradition has been deeply undermined and misconstrued.
In today’s world, it’s typical for people to mix-up Al-Aqsa - the second mosque built on Earth- for the Dome of the Rock.
The world’s current understanding of Al-Aqsa poses a grave risk: it leaves the Mosque - and the land it sits on - vulnerable to potential acquisition from Israel.
And if Al-Aqsa were to be destroyed: it would quickly fade from our memories, overshadowed by its more popular neighbor, The Dome of the Rock.
We must act NOW to clear up this potentially hazardous misunderstanding, increase visitation to Al-Aqsa and fight to protect this historical and religious landmark.
Become a supporter of Al-Aqsa and help preserve this piece of Muslim history for the world’s future generations.

Glorified be He (Allâh). Who took His slave (Muhammad SAW) for a journey by night from Al-Masjid-al-Harâm to the farthest mosque, the neighborhood where of we have blessed, in order that we might show of our signs. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. Surah Al-Isra'(17) verse:1
وَقُلْ جَاء الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا
And say: 'Ttuth has come and Falsehood has vanished. Surely! Falsehood is ever bound to vanish.' Surah Al-Isra'(17) verse:81
