The transgression on the Aqsa mosque: the House of God at Al-Quds in Palestine
Muslims used to travel to the Aqsa mosque by thousands from everywhere in the world to pray in the holy Aqsa mosque in Al-Quds..
When pilgrims completed their pilgrimage to the House of God at Mecca, they traveled to the Aqsa mosque to pray God there and worship Him in His holy House.. and they also went to it in all times all along the year.
Palestinians and Muslims in Palestine used to pray God daily with their thousands, so the House of God the Aqsa mosque was full of worshipers who worship God alone without associate or peer.
Then when the Zionists occupied Al-Quds in the year 1967, they started to oppress Muslims and bar them by all means so as to prevent them from worshiping God in His Holy House: the Aqsa mosque in Al-Quds .. until the number of worshipers lessened to much extent ... which is the most evil crime: to prevent God's masjid or mosque from being the place of God's worship.
Quran 2: 114, which means:
(And who is worse , with his wrong-doing, than he who bars the mosques of God, so that His Name be not rehearsed in them , and strives to desert them b ?)
114 b To desert the mosque: to make little number of people go to it; therefore, because they barred the believers from entering and worshiping God in the mosque, they did work to desert the mosque.
Similarly, anyone who prevents people from prayer and worship in any mosque or is a factor in preventing people, then he too has worked to desert the mosque.
