Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Date Added : 02-11-2015

Resolution No.(19) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:
“Over the U.S Congress`s Resolution on Making Jerusalem the Capital of “Israel”


Praise be to Allah; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all of his family and companions.
In reference to the US senate`s resolution No.(106) which stipulates recognizing the undivided city of Jerusalem as the capital of the state of “Israel”, and that it should remain as such. 
The Islamic World was shocked by the resolution of the US congress, which announced annexing the undivided Jerusalem under the authority of “Israel“. On its part, the Board of Iftaa` in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan strongly denounced this resolution which violates human rights and the principles given as glad tidings by Allah`s Prophets, forbidding injustice, aggression, and  manipulation of land, sanctities, and places of worship.
This resolution constitutes a flagrant aggression against the belief of every Muslim on this earth, and the United States is accountable for “Israel`s “acts of injustice and aggression in our occupied land, Palestine. This resolution also violates the beliefs and values given as glad tidings by Allah`s Prophets and the Messenger of Islam, Mohammad (PBUH) - the seal of all Prophets and Messengers - who was trusted over their legacy  and who inherited their message of justice, mercy, and respect to all religions until the Day of Resurrection.
It is worth mentioning that Jerusalem is an integral part of the belief of each Muslim, and that he/she must protect it as he/she does his religion for the following reasons:
1- Jerusalem and its Al-Aqsa Mosque are part of the belief of each Muslim in the sense that it is the land that Allah the Almighty had chosen as the place from where Prophet Mohammad embarked on his nocturnal journey (Al-Isra wa al Miraajj).
2- It is Muslims` first Qibla (direction for prayer) before the Hijrah and while they were in Makkah, and it remained as such during their stay in Madina for about eighteen months.
3- Its Al-Aqsa Mosque is one of the three  mosques to which journeys are set out for, in adherence to the Prophet`s (PBUH) command: “Do not set out on a journey except for three Mosques i.e. Al-Masjid-AI-Haram, the Mosque of Allah's Apostle , and the Mosque of Al-Aqsa, (Mosque of Jerusalem).“ {Bukhari}.
4- What the Prophet (PBUH) told us as regards the merit of residing in Jerusalem and its environs, where he said {what means}: “There is still a party of my nation dominant over what is right, and victorious over its enemy. The companions asked the Prophet: where are they? He said: in Jerusalem and its environs.“ {Ahmad}.
5- Throughout history, Muslims-and since the Caliph Umar Bin Al-Khattaab was handed the keys of Jerusalem-have been the guardians of Palestine and Jerusalem, and they have maintained the freedom of belief and worship to the followers of other religions. Al-Qiamah church amongst others is still a living example on the justice of Islam and its protection of non-Muslims and their places of worship.
6- The aggression of the Israeli occupation authorities against Jerusalem, places of worship, and Al-Aqsa Mosque through the digging works, seizure of Islamic endowments such as Bab Al-Magharibah, seizure of lands and estates and the demolition of some of them, assault on men, women, children and the elderly because they seek freedom, represent an irrefutable evidence over the violation of human rights and human sanctity. And Allah Knows Best.
