Dr. Nasser Al-Qaram, head of the Palestinian Shari'a Court of Appeals, said in a Friday, June 23, 2023 sermon in Nablus that was aired on Palestine TV: "We ask Allah to grant us martyrdom." Al-Qaram added that Jihad is the "pinnacle of Islam." He stated that the Quran has warned Muslims about the "sons of Zion", citing several passages from the Quran that malign the Jews.

Dr. Nasser Al-Qaram: "The blessing of martyrdom was endowed upon the Palestinian people. Martyrdom is the greatest testimony in this world and the Hereafter, in the eyes of Allah, in the eyes of the nation of the Prophet Muhammad, and in the eyes of the entire world. We ask Allah to grant us this martyrdom, and in the eyes of the entire world.

"We ask Allah to grant us this martyrdom, because Jihad for the sake of Allah is the pinnacle of Islam.


"The Quran warned us about the sons of Zion. Allah said about them: 'If they gain dominance over you, they would be to you as enemies, and extend against you their hands and their tongues with evil, and they wish you would disbelieve.' Allah also said about them: 'They do not observe any bond or treaty with a believer, and they are the aggressors.' Allah also said: 'Whenever they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it, and they spread corruption across the land, and Allah does not like corrupters.' Allah also said: 'They will continue to fight you, until they turn you back from your religion, if they are able.'

"Therefore, the war with the occupation will last until the Day of Judgment."
