Headline: "Al-Habbash calls on Muslims to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the occupation and its terrorist colonialists"


"Supreme Shari'ah Judge of Palestine and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] Advisor on Religious Affairs and Islamic Relations Mahmoud Al-Habbash called on Muslims throughout the world to defend the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Israeli occupation's plots and its barbaric attacks, of which the world saw another chapter of its racism today [Aug, 11, 2019] with its break-in to the [Al-Aqsa] Mosque and its attack against the worshippers there (referring to Israelis entering the Temple Mount on Tisha B'Av, Muslim riots there for the express purpose of preventing them from entering it, and Israel's response to the riots; see note below –Ed.).

In a press statement today (Sunday), Al-Habbash requested that the Muslims in all of the world's states make a pilgrimage to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and carry out Ribat(i.e., religious conflict over land claimed to be Islamic) there with their Palestinian brothers in order to participate with them in the battle to defend the sanctity of the First Direction of Prayer (i.e., Jerusalem) and the third holiest site against the criminal attack that is being committed by the occupation state and terrorist colonialists who are desecrating the plazas of the Jerusalem Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount) since the morning in a blatant blow to Muslims’ sensibilities on their blessed Eid Al-Adha day (i.e., “the Sacrifice Feast”)."


Mahmoud Al-Habbash also holds the position of Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice.
