22 March، 2015

In the Name of Allāh,

the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful

Praise is due to Allāh, Lord of the worlds, may the blessings and peace be upon our master Muḥammad, the last of prophets, on his family, and all his companions.

Resolution No. 216 (12/22) Visit to Jerusalem:

Shariah Objectives and Rulings

The Council of the International Islamic Fiqh Academy of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, holding its 22nd session in Kuwait City, State of Kuwait, on 2–5 Jumādā al-Ākhirah 1436h (22–25 March 2015),

Having examined the research papers submitted to the Academy concerning the Visit to Jerusalem: Shariah Objectives and Rulings,

Having listened to the in-depth discussions on the subject,

Concludes that the Shariah ruling regarding this visit is a desirable and rec- ommended act, but the discussion focused on the advantages and disadvantages of this visit.

Considers that the evaluation of these advantages is due to competent spe- cialists such as rulers and decision-makers in Muslim countries.

It is, therefore, necessary to remind all Muslims that the cause of al-Quds al- Sharīf (Jerusalem) is the cause of the entire Ummah, and it is an obligation to support and help al-Quds al-Sharīf, its inhabitants, and the Palestinian people. Al-Quds Al-Sharīf is not only the concern of the Palestinian people but of all Muslims. The preservation of Al-Aqsa Mosque is part of the Islamic faith and

among the responsibilities of Muslims.

Indeed, Allāh is All-Knowing.
