This year, tents were set up in the courtyard of Masjid al-Aqsa, the first qibla of Muslims.
In the last 10 days of Ramadan, Palestinians and Muslims from abroad set up dozens of tents in the courtyard of Masjid al-Aqsa for the worship of Itikaf. And hundreds of Muslims spent their time in recitation of the Holy Quran and worship.
Palestinians emphasize that it is a privileged place to engage in Itikaf in Masjid al-Aqsa. However, not every Palestinian who wants can go to Masjid al-Aqsa.
Israel does not allow Palestinians under the age of 40 who wish to come to Jerusalem from the West Bank during Ramadan.
Israel imposes a ban on certain people to enter the Masjid al-Aqsa specifically.
Palestinians invite all Muslims to Masjid al-Aqsa.
