What is Aqsa week?

Masjid Al-Aqsa is the third holiest site in Islam. It is a symbol of unity, heritage and resistance for the Palestinian people. This gives an idea of the level of importance Masjid Al-Aqsa holds. Aqsa Week is a global initiative to highlight the importance of Masjid Al-Aqsa and therefore reinforce your devotion and love for it. During this crucial week we encourage everyone to try and go the extra mile in their efforts to help raise awareness of Palestine and Masjid Al-Aqsa using #LoveAqsa. Read more about Aqsa Week.
