Distinguished brothers and sisters members of the board of trustees
Our respected guests

It is my honor to meet you today in the first regular meeting of the Board of Trustees of Al-Quds Foundation Malaysia. I really feel privileged that you have answered my invitation to embark on a long and fruitful journey safeguarding and serving one of the most important cities in human heritage, a Muslim and Christian sanctuary and one of the holiest places ever, that is Al-Quds city, better known in English as Jerusalem.

For almost a century, Al-Quds has been under foreign occupation that never relented in changing its identity, tempering its landmarks, planting exotic buildings, preventing both Muslims and Christians to maintain or even reach their holy places in a clear attempt to Judaize the holy city. This move comes as a main step to dominate the whole region, creating a buffer zone that disrupt its unity and entice enmities among its inhabitants. The wicked Zionist scheme, has always aimed at disjointing Muslims and sawing the seeds of diversity among them to keep them week and ultimately rule over them.

We here in Malaysia, are privileged by Allah (SWT) with stability, security, safety and a prosperous economy, which enabled our fellow citizens to lead peaceful lives; nonetheless Malaysians have never been forgetful of the holy city’s owes and its inhabitants sufferings. Founding Al-Quds Foundation Malaysia is not an isolated move in this direction, it is rather a continuation of a long march started by our politicians, Ulama, Intellectuals, academics scholars common men and women, decades ago.

Today, we meet overlooking our political and ideological differences, to be united for a higher cause, not an earthly one but a moral and religious obligation. Our major interest is to safeguard and regain Al-Quds. No matter how small our contribution may be, the important thing is that it represents our commitment and passion toward our holy city. When these efforts are combined with other efforts form many parts of the world it is bond to build a great momentum and ultimately change the injustice that has shrouded the holy land for a long time.

As members of the board of trustees, you play vital role in taking the support to this holy cause, to a higher level, each in his or her field:
Politicians: in rallying political and public support, legally, financially on local and international levels.
Ulama: Educating Muslims on the importance of this holy cause, and relating them emotionally to it, through lectures and writings.
Businessmen and women: in donating money and providing other means to support the cause.
Academics: Organizing conventions, conferences, research work, writing articles, books and delivering lectures on this issue.
Professionals: Extending their arms to the people of the holy land in training, cooperation, building schools, hospital and financial support.

This is only to name a few, for I am sure there many other ways that you may think of.

Finally, let us show the whole world how Malaysians stand for their conviction and religion. May Allah (SWT) bless you all.

Thank you.

The Board of Trustee of QFM is clearly apolitical.

"Lim Guan Eng should apologise to all Malaysians!"

In his chat with media covering the event after the QFM media conference later, Mukhriz  repeated his demand yesterday that Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng must apologise to all Malaysians. This is despite yesterday the latter issued an open apology to HRH Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar of Johor and Johoreans for his remark at the luncheon with Singapore Foreign Correspondent Association on 12 August.

“Lim Guan Eng apologised for his remark but he still has not apologise for lying”. Mukhriz was referring to Lim’s response when Bernama reported on the Q&A last Sunday and denial after TV3 aired the footage.
