The Palestinian Scholars' Council has issued a fatwa (Islamic legal ruling) on the permissibility of performing I'tikaf (seclusion in the mosque for worship) in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and staying there to observe the holy month of Ramadan amidst the ongoing violations by Israeli occupation forces.
The fatwa emphasizes the importance of performing I'tikaf and staying in the mosque to resist the occupation and thwart the Zionist plans to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque during Ramadan.
The Council also highlights the significance of I'tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan and its merit in the face of the dangers that the mosque is currently facing. The fatwa encourages Muslims who are able to travel to Al-Aqsa Mosque to do so, and support the mosque's defenders by all means, including material and moral support.
Additionally, the fatwa calls upon the Islamic Waqf in Jordan to open Al-Aqsa Mosque throughout the year for I'tikaf and not just during Ramadan, and to encourage and facilitate this form of worship. The source of the news is the Al-Mujtama Magazine.
