- Ask your local mosque to deliver a khutba on al-Isra wal-Miraj on Friday 12th March. You can download a template khutba here.

Aqsa Week 6th – 12th March 2021(live on our YouTube)
Aqsa Week will coincide with al-Isra wal-Miraj (11th March) to bring the love of Al-Aqsa to the global community under the banner of #LoveAqsa.
Aqsa Week is about creating conversations on why we #LoveAqsa
This year, Friends of Al-Aqsa (FOA) has partnered with American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) to deliver an exciting educational week in order to bring a global focus to Al-Aqsa and the Palestinian people.
We are calling upon university societies, families, mosques, work places, halaqas, local councils and parliaments around the world to hold events under the banner of #LoveAqsa.
Aqsa Week should be marked by organising varied events that bring to fore the centrality of Al-Aqsa and the plight of the Palestinians. The events should also recognise other oppressed and colonised people. Aqsa Week should be used to teach Muslim and non-Muslims of the great heritage of Masjid Al-Aqsa and how to support the occupied people around the world.
FOA and AMP have organised a week of events (6 – 12 March) to give a direction on how you can organise programmes in your network or organisation.
Join our #LoveAqsa Facebook event page to let us know your thoughts and spread the word.
In our sixth year of running Aqsa Week we have now gone global!
It has garnered worldwide support from a number of countries and organisations, including: Ministry of Awqaf Jerusalem, International Union of Muslim Scholars, Ministry of Religious Affair Turkey as well as support from Palestine, South Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, Iraq, Bangladesh, United States, Canada, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, India and Pakistan.
