ISNA (The Islamic Society of North America) is organizing a rally In Washington DC, in protest of the on-going violence perpetrated by Israel on the Palestinian people. The rally is also held in conjunction with the celebrated 'night of the ascension of the prophet Muhammad s.a.w. ' Isra' wa mi'raj' which took place in the month of Rejab, and which also falls on the 28th Oct. of this year.
Muslims from all over the world now stand united with the Palestinian cause. Let us pray and seek Allah's help that this will mark the beginning of the emancipation of Al-quds and liberation of the Palestinian muslims from the Jewish yolk and persecution.
Jamaah Islah Malaysia has also declared this month of Rejab as 'the month of solidarity with the Palestinian people', urging concerned muslims and all Malaysians to show support for the Palestinian people who's right to self determination and sovereignty has been denied for more than half a century now.
