Masjid al-Aqsa (1)

Amer Abu Zahra

Muslims ought to distinguish between Masjid al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock.

Thank you for emphasizing the importance of Masjid al-Aqsa from the Qur’an as well as Islamic history. Unfortunately many Muslims confuse the Dome of the Rock with Masjid al-Aqsa. While the Dome is a more imposing and impressive structure, we should be careful not to lose sight of Masjid al-Aqsa otherwise there is a danger of Zionist mischief that Muslims might overlook. The defence of Masjid al-Aqsa and indeed of the Haram al-Sharif is the collective responsibility of all Muslims, not just the Palestinians.
