“Go and pray there (Al Aqsa). If you cannot visit it and pray there, then send some oil to be used in the lamps”.
According to latest reports, forces in the early hours of this morning attacked Palestinian worshippers inside Masjid Al Aqsa Mosque.
Hundreds of worshippers who were in prayer observing the holy month of Ramadan were forcibly removed from the mosque.
We’re asking you to stand with Masjid Al Aqsa and our brothers and sisters and support during this time of great need.
€25 – Give €25 and provide a family with a hot nutritious iftar in Gaza.
€110 – Provide a fasting family with food to last the month of Ramadan.
€100 – Help contribute towards urgent medical supplies and medicine to hospitals.
Masjid Al Aqsa is the first Qibla of the Muslims and the third holiest place in Islam. It was the destination of our Prophet’s (pbuh) Isra (Night Journey) and the starting point of his (pbuh) Miraj (ascension).
Since 2014 Masjid Al Aqsa has been raided by forces numerous times, especially during the blessed month of Ramadan, leaving behind injury, damage and destruction.
Human Appeal has been working in Palestine for over 30 years, delivering vital life – saving aid.
We’re on the ground right now working to assess and support those left wounded and seriously injured.
During this blessed month of Ramadan, please donate your Zakat and Sadaqah to help those most affected by this sad, latest escalation on our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
Cycles of violence and destruction in the besieged region are a common occurrence and families live in fear every single day.
As fear and trauma with each escalation in violence intensifies, Palestinian families are struggling to survive without food, water, and a chance to earn a living as the blockade restricts goods required to make a living, as well as access to the sea and land.
The 2.1 million people in Gaza endure the accumulating hardship of a 16-year blockade that restricts goods needed to rebuild, healthcare essentials, imports to earn a living, as well as access to farmland and fishing waters.
Gaza’s hospitals and medical services are buckling under the strain of a severe fuel shortage, a limited supply of essential drugs, and scarce medical supplies. With each wave of attacks, more homes and livelihoods are destroyed, leaving families in need of help to meet their most urgent needs.
Give mercy now.
The mercy of a donation
Donate this Ramadan, and help us to provide:
• medicine and fuel to hospitals
• surgery for patients in urgent need of operations.
• critical repair to damaged homes
• nutritious family food parcels to last a family the entire month of Ramadan
• olive trees for struggling farmers.
