Al-Aqsa holds a significant status in the Islamic tradition, being the sacred land where all prophets prayed together—a place blessed and sanctified according to the Qur’an. In the face of the ongoing crisis in Gaza, many Muslims have struggled to understand how we should process the situation and respond to assist our brothers and sisters.

Join Kitaab Academy’s Aqsa Conference in Fullerton, California, as our esteemed guest speakers delve into crucial topics. During this event we will learn how to view the on-going situation in light of our faith. Additionally, we will explore the religious importance of the city and its surroundings, the historical factors that have led to the current situation, and engage in meaningful conversations about practical steps as Muslims living in America.

This full-day educational conference is a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding of Palestine. Your participation will not only contribute to knowledge but also support a meaningful cause as all proceeds will be donated to Gaza.
