A Heartfelt Tribute to the Warmth of Palestine

In a world often overshadowed by conflicts and divisions, there exists a land where the warmth of hospitality transcends boundaries and prejudices. Palestine, a land steeped in history and resilience, is home to some of the most welcoming and friendly people one could ever hope to encounter.

My journey through Palestine was not just a mere exploration of its ancient landmarks and breathtaking landscapes; it was an immersion into a culture defined by its unwavering hospitality and kindness. From the bustling streets of Ramallah to the serene alleys of Bethlehem, every encounter with the Palestinian people left an indelible mark on my heart.

The warmth with which I was welcomed into homes, the generosity displayed by strangers offering me tea and sweets, and the genuine curiosity to share their stories were experiences that touched me deeply. Despite the hardships they face, Palestinians exude a remarkable resilience and an enduring spirit that is truly inspiring.

Beyond their legendary hospitality, the Palestinian people carry with them a fervent hope for a future of freedom and dignity. Their unwavering determination to reclaim their rights and establish a sovereign state of Palestine is both admirable and deserving of support from the global community.

As I bid farewell to Palestine, my heart is filled with gratitude for the unforgettable moments shared with its people. I am reminded that amidst the political turmoil and adversity, it is the human connection that transcends all barriers.

To the friendly and resilient people of Palestine, I extend my sincerest wishes for a future where your land is free, your rights are recognized, and your hospitality continues to shine as a beacon of hope for the world. May Palestine one day stand as a testament to the triumph of peace and justice.

In the words of the great Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, "On this earth what makes life worth living: the small hopes that endure, the fringes of trees, the sunken blue of the sky: the light emanating from my people's hands." May that light guide Palestine to a future of freedom and prosperity.

The Al Aqua Mosque is fascinating, it's the third most sacred it in Islam. It can hold 5,000 worshippers for Friday prayers. The Al Aqsa Mosque is on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. If you want to visit, it's best to make arrangements in advance.

My lifetime dream came true when Allah granted me the opportunity to come and pray here. It is teeming with history but really unfortunate that politics reigns over the area and makes it so difficult for others to come freely. I was accosted several times by plains clothed men who said they were security staff which really can intimidate a tourist to say the least.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam. Tradition has it that the Prophet Mohammad began his Night Journey here. A fundamental belief of Islam is that "There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his Prophet." It is said that Mohammad, mounted on his magical steed Al-Barak, left from here on his Night of Power. The mosque can hold more than 5,000 worshippers for Friday prayers. The mosque is beautifully decorated; the stained-glass windows are over 1,000 years old. Al-Aqsa's grey roof does not stand out; however, the mosque is easy to find if you visit the Temple Mount. By the way, Al-Aqsa has always been the object of controversy. By the way, Christians can enter the mosque, its best to make arrangements in advance.

Prime reason to visit Israel is to visit Al Aqsa compound . Tha whole place is so serene beautiful and holy. Because of yum kippur theres alot of security at the gates.Jerusalem sells because of the dome of the rock fotos. Allot of relegious tourism in and arround the compound.

A holy city in Baitulmuqaddis.
The gates opens before Fajr prayers, around 04.05hrs.
Well guarded by the Israelis soldiers n safe inside. At times, due to the large congregation before fajr, may entail some commotions.
Well kept complex.
Good walk to the main Mosque, Masjid Qibli. For Fridays prayer, Masjid Qibli is reserved for rhe men while the Dome of the Rocks are for the women. Do come early as the WC is rather far.
