At the end of Ramadan this year, Palestine was once again tested and drenched in bloodshed as a result of repeated attacks by the Israeli Zionist army.
However, it has been reported that the Zionist army finally retreated and already left the grounds of the Al-Aqsa Mosque after receiving warnings and counter-attacks from the Al-Qassam Brigade soldiers.
Gaza Now :
Selepas amaran Al-Qassam, tentera Zionis telah berundur dan meninggalkan kawasan Masjidil Aqsa secara keseluruhan.

For those wondering, the Al-Qassam Brigade is the military wing of the Palestinian Harakat al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyah (HAMAS) organisation. Word has it that the armed force is greatly feared by the Zionist entity due to the success of those who are able to fight the regime even though their military technology is not as advanced as the opposed army.
The title Al-Qassam was taken from the name of Sheikh Izzudin Al-Qassam, a scholar from Jableh, Syria. Back in 1921, he was exiled to Palestine for having carried out an armed movement against the French occupiers who colonised his home country.
In Palestine, the Muslim preacher also openly opposed the efforts of the British government which once planned to make the country a Jewish settlement. Due to his action, he was martyred in 1935 after he was killed by the British troops.

The story of Sheikh Izzudin has sparked a revolution of the armed movement in Palestine. As a result, the Al-Qassam Brigades was officially established in 1987 by the influential leader of HAMAS, Salah Shehadeh to defend Palestinian land from Israeli attacks.
To join the Al-Qassam brigade, they need to meet the requirements including:
1. Blessed by parents to be ready for martyrdom at any time.
2. Must perform Subuh (dawn) prayers in congregation for three consecutive months and confirmed by the imam of the local mosque.
3. Never commit immorality and smoke.
4. Obliged to study the translated version of the Quran and memorise 40 Arba’in al-Hadith.
5. Practice daily zikir recitation, voluntary fasting, and tahajjud (voluntary night prayer).
6. Have high intelligence.
7. Diligently attend halaqa (study of Islam and Quran) and knowledge gatherings.
they are here to bring hope and freedom.

Those who have been fighting for Islam are often considered terrorists and militants by the Western media, and the same goes for the Al-Qassam Brigade as well. In reality, their only goal and intention is to fight their enemies, especially the Israeli Zionist army.
“Our enemies are invading and destroying our land. Not only that, they are also the cause of children becoming orphans and women becoming widows. So, the war will break out when an enemy tries to invade Palestine,” said one of the Al-Qassam soldiers in an interview with Awani back in 2012.
Di masjid yang sama, dulu pernah digendong ayahnya saat beriktikaf & bertilawah. Kini, dirinya hanya memeluk foto sang ayah yang telah syahid.
Semoga Allah memberi kemenangan buat umat islam di Al-Aqsa! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/EzemNcUsz9

Jangan sekali sekali kita lupa kejadian ini.
Beginilah penjajah Zionis meraikan kejadian kebakaran Masjidil Aqsa yang berlaku semalam.
Ajarlah kepada anak anak kita, keluarga kita bahawa mereka ini adalah musuh kita buat selama lamanya.
Semoga Allah melaknat mereka. pic.twitter.com/6125NRneDA

Hopefully, this terrifying scene that’s been happening in Palestine will end soon, and we also urge all leaders of Islamic countries to unite to help Palestine against the atrocities of the Israeli Zionist army. #FreePalestine #SavePalestine
