Dear fellow Ulama of Islam,
I did not hear Ulama from the pulpits in the British Mosques informing their congregations about Palestine and Masjid Al-Aqsa. I did not hear them exhorting the (Muslim) community to visit Palestine to show solidarity with the oppressed. Above all, I do not hear them continuously and rigorously educate the (Muslim) community about the status and rank of Masjid Al-Aqsa, being the third highest Mosque in Islam. You are my elders so I turn to you in my distress. I reflect upon myself and admit that I am failing in my duty towards fellow British Muslims. In my limited capacity, I call upon all of you to come together and provide guidance to the British Muslims about Palestine and Masjid Al-Aqsa. This calamity is much bigger and more important than differences of opinions.
