An Eid Gift: Photos from Al-Aqsa!


One of our readers, Amira Yousef, was blessed with the opportunity to spend the 27th night of Ramadan at Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem. There were an estimated 500,000 people present for taraweeh prayer. She wanted everyone to witness how beautiful it was for so many people to come together in this very dear place to our ummah. Enjoy!

May Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He) bless this Eid for you and your loved ones. Please remember to keep those who are suffering from occupation, war and poverty in your du`a’.

    Jazakillahu khairan. I was blessed with oppurtunity to spend a few days in Al-Quds myself during Ramadan. It truly is an overwhelming experience praying tarawih with the believers. May Allah continue to bless the sister who also had that experience and took these wonderful pictures.
