H.E. al-Sayyid Muhammad AM Hussein, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Grand Imam Masjid Al-Aqsa was at Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin’s residence in Hyderabad for a dinner reception in his honour in support of the Palestinian cause.
During his visit, H.E. told Sayyid the religious leadership in Palestine is under the descendants of Al-Hussein ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib ‘alayhi salam, that the Palestinians celebrate Mawlid, love Ahl al-Bayt and do not oppose Sufism. On the contrary, there are mosques in Palestine named after Sufi Saints like the Sultan Ibrahim Ibn Adham Mosque in Beit Hanina, Palestine.
H.E. the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem inaugurated a symposium on Sufism during his visit to Hyderabad and stated the people of Gaza never refer to it as simply Gaza, rather take pride in honor of protecting the tomb of Hashim ibn ‘Abd al-Manaf, great grandfather of the Holy Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and progenitor of the Hashemites, located in Old Gaza. Gazan Muslims refer to Gaza as “Gazzat Hashim” (Gaza of Hashim).
He told Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin he knew of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and was very happy to learn of his connection to him. He granted Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin a Key to al-Haram al-Sharif Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem.
