The Annual Al-Quds Day Demonstration will take place on Sunday 28th September 2008, 1pm at Marble Arch and marching towards Trafalgar Square. The International Day of Al-Quds is day of the oppressed in Palestine and around the World.vIt is held each year on the last Friday of Ramadan. Al-Quds Day is not an Islamic religious holiday but a political event open to both Muslims and non-Muslims alike, and thus observance is not obligatory in Islam.

The remembrance of this day originated in Iran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. The observance was suggested by Imam Khomeini, Founder of the Islamic Revolution, in August of that year, saying:

“I invite Muslims all over the globe to consecrate the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as Jerusalem Day and to proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people of Palestine.”

“For many years, I have been notifying the Muslims of the danger posed by the usurper Israel which today has intensified its savage attacks against the Palestinian brothers and sisters, and which, in the south of Lebanon in particular, is continually bombing Palestinian homes in the hope of crushing the Palestinian struggle. I ask all the Muslims of the world and the Muslim governments to join together to sever the hand of this usurper and its supporters. I call on all the Muslims of the world to select as Jerusalem Day the last Friday in the holy month of Ramadan – which is itself a determining period and can also be the determiner of the Palestinian people’s fate – and through a ceremony demonstrating the solidarity of Muslims world-wide, announce their support for the legitimate rights of the Muslim people. I ask God Almighty for the victory of the Muslims over the infidels.”
