U of HQIS issues a Statement on U.S. Decision on Recognition of Al-Qudus as Israel’s Capital and Transfer of its Embassy there
Wednesday, 30 May, 2018- The decision of the US administration to recognize Al-Qudus as the capital of the so-called State of Israel, and the transfer of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Al-Qudus has sparked a wave of anger in the Islamic, Arab and international circles.
Based on its mission of faith and its human and moral responsibility as an academic institution, the University of the Holy Quran and Islamic Sciences (Sudan), strongly condemns this unjust decision against Al-Qudus Al-Sharif, the city that embraces Almasjid Al-Aqsa (Al-Aqsa Mosque), which represents a religious and historical symbol for Muslims as the first Qibla (the direction to which Muslims turn at prayer ), the third of the two Holy Sanctuaries, and the land of Isra (the night journey from the Holy Mosque in Mekkah to Al-Aqsa Mosque in Al-Qudus) of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and upon all the other prophets and messengers.
The U of HQIS considers this decision a clear provocation of the feelings of Muslims in all parts of the world and as a flagrant violation of UN Security Council resolutions, United Nations principles, and the international law, especially when keeping into consideration that the decision to move the US Embassy coincides with the Nakba anniversary of the patient Palestinian people and the 70th anniversary of the State of the Zionist enemy. The decision also constitutes a threat to the security and stability of the region, threatens all efforts and endeavors of peace, and causes the US to miss all opportunities of eligibility, supervision and neutrality in any future peace process as it is considered as biased in favor of the aggressor (Israel) party.
The University deeply regrets that the US administration has not listened to the voice of reason and ignored the calls of the world's conscience to retreat from this decision which will disturb the international stability and security.
The U of HQIS will stand firmly and support the just cause of Muslims and Palestinian people’s fight for their occupied land and heritage of the nation chosen by Allah as the best nation that has been raised up for mankind.
No doubt that “the darkness must one day be driven out; and the Kingdom founded on injustice never lasts”.
And there is no victory save from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.
