In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

The Marjiʿiyyah al-dīniyyah affirms—once again—its outright support of the proud Palestinian people in their fearless resistance of the occupiers; those who strive to gnaw more of their land and dispel them from other parts of al-Quds al-sharīf (Jerusalem, the sanctified).

It calls upon free people to aid and help [the Palestinian people] in returning their stolen rights. Indeed, the violent confrontations that the squares of Masjid al-aqṣā and the rest of the occupied lands witness these days reveal—without doubt—the extent of the Palestinians’ firmness in confronting the brutal occupation and its continued assaults, and them not giving up their seized lands, regardless of how great the sacrifices.

We ask Allah—Exalted is He—that he assists them and provides for them through a victory from Him; and victory comes only from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.
