I don’t know why…but they are. Ya Allah.
Heavy rain has hit some parts of Somalia! Alhamdulillah! Our duas are working…let’s keep praying it gets better!
Q: Which is the Al-Aqsa Mosque?
A: Neither. It is the area edged in red (above) and comprises nearly one sixth of the walled old city of Jerusalem. ‘Al-Aqsa’ is the name that is used to describe the whole area surrounded by the wall at the southern-eastern end of walled old Jerusalem. The Al-Aqsa Mosque encloses over 35 acres and encompasses more than 200 buildings, domes, schools, wells, etc. The mosque with the golden dome, Masjid Qubbah Al-Sakhrah (the Dome of the Rock) and the mosque with the grey lead dome, Al Masjid Al Qibli are both part of the walled Al-Aqsa Mosque. Even if you pray under a tree or anywhere within the area edged in red shown above, you are deemed to have prayed at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Q: What does the name ‘Al-Aqsa’ Mosque mean?
A: The name translates to ‘the farthest’ mosque, although some scholars have translated it to ‘the remote’ mosque. According to a verse in the Qur’an, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) took the journey in a single night from ‘the sacred mosque’ (in Makkah) to ‘the farthest mosque’ (in Jerusalem).
Q: How many gates does the Al-Aqsa Mosque have?
A: The Al-Aqsa Mosque has 5 closed gates and 10 open gates. The latter are: Asbat, Hitta, Prophets (Faisal), Ghawaima (Al Khalil), Al-Nazir, Hadeed, Qattaneen, Mutawadaa (Mutahara), Silsila and Magharibah.

I am the orphan of Gaza. I am the deformed of Iraq. I am the violated of Afghanistan. I am the bombarded of Pakistan. I am the martyr of Uzbekistan. I am the liberator of Algeria. I am the slave of Bahrain. I am the catalyst of Tunisia. I am the hope of Egypt. I am the courage of Syria. I am the determination of Yemen. I am the martyr of Libya. I am the freedom of Palestine. I am the hunger-striken child of Somalia!
Does anyone pray for me?
Let’s remember them in our duas…
Dua when in difficulty:
حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ
Hasbun Allahu wa nikhmal wakeel.
Allah is sufficient for us and He is the Best Helper. And upon Allah do we rely.
(Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg. 65)
