Learn about and #LoveAqsa
Aqsa Week is a week of educational events designed to bring global focus to Al-Aqsa mosque and the plight of the Palestinians. This year held between 24th Feb - 2nd March.
UPDATE: Aqsa Week 2023 to be held Monday 13th Feb – Sunday 19th Feb
Aqsa Week is a global initiative to promote the love of Masjid Al-Aqsa.
It is an incredible week for people around the world to create conversation and raise awareness on the centrality of Masjid Al-Aqsa as well as the plight of the Palestinian people. The week includes workshops, talks, activities and shareable content for adults and children, all under the banner of #LoveAqsa.
Similar to previous years, 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.
Here are potential ideas of areas your events could cover:
- What is Al-Aqsa?
- What is the history and significance of Al-Aqsa?
- What are the dangers, including human rights abuses, faced by Al-Aqsa and the Palestinians?
These 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 occupied people across the world.
Last year the event garnered support from various countries and organisations as well as from Palestine itself.
