"The Palestinian issue should be something we think about day and night" Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki
I was watching a video a few days ago regarding how people are so unaware of what is happening in Gaza. I would say I'm surprised but having thought about it, if I didn't have an interest in current affairs I would not know myself. The amount of coverage on the issue does not come close to the amount of coverage it should actually have.
Since a week ago approximately 172 Palestinians have been killed whilst the death toll for Israel is 0. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu states "We're sorry for any accidental civilian deaths but it's the Hamas that bears complete responsibility for such civilian casualties."
They're sorry for killing so many innocent civilians? They're sorry for tearing families apart, crushing their hearts, losing loved one. The word sorry is such an insult, sorry does not even come close. And accidental? Did they think missiles would burst into a thousand flowers? Their missiles had one purpose, to destroy whatever or whomever it reached. There is no accident.
A Danish journalist, Allan Sorensen, who posted a photograph of Israeli residents in the town of Sderot. He tweeted along with his picture: “Sderot cinema. Israelis bringing chairs 2 hilltop in sderot 2 watch latest from Gaza. Clapping when blasts are heard.”
Is this what the human race has become? Where has humanity gone? It's so hard to believe that people can be so heartless, there's not enough words to describe how inhumane this is. How can you physically sit there enjoying the deaths of others? I really don't understand how this is even possible.
I don't think I can write enough words to express the severity of the Palestinian issue, but I do want to share something that gives us hope.
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to Mua'ad Ibn Jabal (RA), 'Beware of the supplication of the unjustly treated, because there is no shelter or veil between it (the supplication of the one who is suffering injustice) and Allah (SWT)' [Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
I fear for those oppressing the Palestinians because each and everyone of the oppressed's duas is answered In Sha Allah. The unjust killings of the men, women and children in Palestine is an ATROCITY. It's time that we heard the calls of our brothers and sisters, donate anything you can, raise awareness, stand together against the west who is condoning the MASSACRE of Gaza, we do not want history to repeat itself. Most of all give them your duas, make dua before you break your fast everyday! For Allah, the Almighty does not refuse the prayer of a fasting person! Every time we're in sujood let's make a dua too for all those going through hardship in Gaza - Unquestionably the help of Allah is near. While our hearts ache for the sufferers of this unjust attacking let us remember them every minute of every day. And let us not rest until FREEDOM is granted for PALESTINE..
May Allay swt save the Muslims of Gaza, May He watch over them and help them, May He grant ease to those oppressed and May His wrath reach the oppressors, may He instill patience in the families who have lost loved ones and may He shelter them from the destruction. He is the All Powerful. The Absolute Ruler. The Judge. The Avenger. All Praise is due to none other but Him. The Lord of the Worlds.
