Quds Day is a day muslims from all around the world show their support for the oppressed muslims of Palestine. Rallies in support of palestine are held in every capital of the world.

"I invite Muslims all over the globe to consecrate the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as 'Quds Day' and to proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people of Palestine." - Imam Khomeini (R.A.), Ramadan 1399AH ( August 1979)

Quds Day is a day Muslims from all around the world show their support for the oppressed Muslims of the world and in particular Palestine. Rallies are held in every capital of the world.

The details of this years Quds Day Rally are given below. Please show your support by attending. It is through lack of Unity and a sense of apathy that we muslims have lost everything. The collective strength Islamic Unity can bring is summed up in a famous quote of Imam Khomeini's:

"If each Muslim were to pour out(just) one bucket of water,there would be a flood to wash away zionism."

The Holy Prophet (SAW) said:

“Surely he is not Muslim who does not take interest in the affairs of Muslims. And surely he is not a Muslim who hears a Muslim calling for help and does not respond to his call”

The importance of Quds Day quoting from the Imam Khomeini’s speeches delivered for the same:

1) “Quds Day is the day when the superpowers should be warned to stay at home and leave the oppressed alone. Israel, the enemy of mankind, the enemy of humanity, which is creating disturbances every day and is attacking our brothers in south Lebanon, must realize that its masters are no longer accepted in the world and must retreat. They must give up their ambitious designs on Iran, their hands must be severed from all the Islamic countries and their agents in these countries must step down. Quds Day is the day for announcing such things, for announcing such things to the Satans who want to push the Islamic nations aside and bring the superpowers into the arena. Quds Day is the day to dash their hopes and warn them that those days are gone.”

2) “Quds Day is the day when we shall discover which individuals and which regimes approve of the conspiracies of international groups and oppose Islam. Those who do not participate they oppose Islam and are in agreement with Israel, and those who participate they are committed, and in agreement with Islam opposing the enemies of Islam at the head America and Israel. It is a day when truth will be distinguished from falsehood, the day when truth and falsehood will be distinct.”

3) “Quds Day is an Islamic day and a day for a general Islamic mobilisation. I hope that this event will be the precursor to the creation of a party for the oppressed throughout the world, which will go by the name of the party of the oppressed. I hope that all the oppressed will join this party to remove the obstacles that lie in their path; that they will rise up against the oppressors and plunderers of the East and West and no longer allow oppressors to tyrannize the weak of the earth; that they will make a reality Islam’s proclamation, Islam’s promise which is that the weak will rule over the oppressors and will inherit the earth.”

4) “It is hoped that by keeping this day alive, indifference will be obliterated, negligence eliminated and the noble nations, through their uprising, will remove from the arena some of those perfidious leaders - who, despite the Muslims and Islam, hand in glove with Israel and following the command of America, continue with their shameful political lives and their criminal existence against the interests of the Muslims - and bury them in the graveyard of history.”

jazakallah, may Allah make us become better people by next Ramadhan insha Allah!!!

if u scroll down the page u can see that it also mentions about al Quds day

look what it says:

While some Muslims around the world hold processions to demonstrate solidarity with the oppressed on Al-Quds Day, there are still many – specifically in Muslim countries – who let Al-Quds Day pass by as if it were any other day. In Imam Khomeini's vision, "those who do not participate are the ones who oppose Islam and are in agreement with Israel."

Allahu Akbar!

"Al Quds day is the day of Islam"- Imam Khomeini (r.a.)

THIS SUNDAY (28TH SEPTEMBER 200)- LONDON 1:00PM MARBLE ARCH- CLICK 4 DETAILS PLEASE

Salam alay kum,

AL QUDS DAY is a day to invoke ourselves,our faith n our existence by raising our voice against oppressors

n evil n evil doers, n to make feel our brothers n sisters in Palestine n Lebanon that they r not alone.And remember the saying of Aagha Khomeini,"

those who do not participate are the ones who oppose Islam and are in agreement with Israel."

And the saying of Rasool Allah (peace be upon him n his progeny),

"one amongst you sees an evil (committed), then (s)he should change it with his/her hand; if (s)he cannot, then with his/her tongue; if (s)he cannot, then with his/her heart – and that is the weakest of faith."

Not trying to start a controversy or anything but I sometimes wonder how mutch all this marching up and down waving fists in the

air and generally looking scary is realy going to help the Palestinians ? I fear instead that it will give a bad image of muslims to peaple

in the west, it is just feeding the steareotypes about us. As a convert myself I know how is their mentality. Most of the non-muslims I know

would be happy to attend a majlis, azadari juloos or visit a mosque to learn more about Islam but would be put off by demonstrations. I try to

explain to them that terrorism and extremism is from the wahhabis who are not proper muslims but when they see shia acting all extreme thats really difficult.

being a Muslim creates a bad image for Muslims - should we now stop being Muslims?

And what exactly is azadari if not a demonstration against oppression? What is a majlis? Just a recitation of history? The Shi'a majalis from its very inception was (and remains so) a demonstration against oppression, it provides us with the spiritual and ideological ammunition to struggle against the Yazeedis of our day.

I,m not saying don,t make demonstrations at all, go ahead if you want to but perhaps the violent tone and hatred should be

toned down a bit. The emphasis should be a call for peace and justice not "death to this, destroy that". Look at the way some leftists

in the west demonstrate, its quite different. Of course we should be against oppression but we must be wary of becoming oppressors

ourselves or giving too mutch unconditional support to regimes that can be oppressive, even if they are from our own.

What is the purpose of a demonstration, especially to a neutral audience? It is to inform about your cause and hopefully get them to see your point of view. In the past I had attended a number of Palestinian rallies in Houston but came to realize that the way these rallies are conducted do way more harm than good to the Palestinian cause. The local Islamic center that conducts the rally, I am sure, has the right intentions but that is about all they get right. Here's a list of problems with their rallies.

1. Loud chants of Takbir and lengthy recitations of Surahs in Arabic in an English speaking non-Muslim country. Why?? If that alone does not unsettle non-Muslims then I don't know what will.

2. Youngsters covering their faces with checkered cloth and wildly waving Palestinian flags.

3. Strong disapproval for holding the US flag along with the Palestinian flag (holding the US flag would show that US citizens' support the Palestinians and that supporting justice is in our nation's interest).

4. Conducting the rally in a small street under the Israeli consulate office building where exposure to the public is insignificant.

I am inclined to agree. Unfortunately at this stage, the perception of muslims by the wider public in the nations we live in have a negative view. However it can be remedied by presenting a friendly face, unlike the criminals that oppress muslims whether it be here with hate-filled garage in the newspapers or murder of Palestinians.

But I think holding the national flag of the country that we protest in shows a link that they should support justice against oppression. E.g. the zionist christian terrorist that killed all those teenagers in Norway, he targeted Norwegian youths were pro-palestianian as the governing Labour party. Furthermore, it prevents the argument by the xenophobes and right-wing nutters that we "don't integrate or support our adopted nations".

We should also remember muslims oppressed in Afghanistan, Bahrain, and Saudi, the last to countries being openly hostile to us shia.

In summary we have the opportunity to present ourselves in a positive light, considering the "Arab spring" protests, it is an opportunity to capitalise. With Israel being condemned globally bar its ardent supporters, we can capitalise on this. We can use the same peaceful protests resolve that these westerns are so happy to push for in the Arab countries albeit to their own ends.

Whilst I do not doubt the sincerity of the masses across the world who partake in these rallies in support of the Palestinian aspirations for national liberation and statehood, I am a bit wary of the politicians and statesmen, especially of the regional powers of Turkey and Iran - as we must remember that states act in self-interest - who may not actually care about Palestine but will instead use their cause to bolster their own position and influence in the wider region.

I mean it's a great idea, a day of support and solidarity, but it's origins are to be found in Iran. Both Turkey and Iran (who have both historically been regional powers) have effectively sought to champion the Palestinian cause, especially since Egypt (under Sadat) betrayed herself and lost that position of leader of the Arab world and the other Arab countries are pretty much incompetent, although recent developments in Egypt offer a glimmer of hope that there can be some change in foreign policy from the old order by loosening the ties with Israel, which will be more reflective of the Egyptian people, who are of course staunchly pro-Palestinian. The Egyptian protestors' attack on the Israeli embassy in Cairo forcing the Israeli diplomats to be evacuted, couldn't have been more manifest as to their position.

This area is called Jerusalem, not al-quds. Extremists who think this is also another one of their holy lands should also remember that the Hebrew religion was also present in this region. It seems all they think about is their own views. Islam has enough "holy places", they don't need any more.

If Muslims are so concerned about Jerusalem, they should be consider the other religions that have a tie there as well.
