  • I pray that Allah (swt) strengthens the iman of the people of Palestine and give them patience to overcome these difficulties.

    In the UK we are trying to get TV channels to air fundraising appeals for Gaza- they decided not to so as to appear unbiased!

    The Palestinians keep trying to re-build their lives and the Israeli’s keep destroying it again- when will the leaders lead.

    We all need to put pressure on our governments to sanction Israeli, hold them to account for war crimes, the illegal wall, using white phospherous. killing hundreds of innocent people- they slaughtered over 1,300 people in 3 weeks- and the body count keeps growing! Palesinians have no rights in their own country, their water and electricity supply is restricted and the borders are unfairly controlled- the list goes on and on and on!

    Please keep the pressure on, especially all of you in the Arab Countries- shame on the Arab governments, we need to get rid of them first!

    Please also do dua for people suffering all around the world, Congo, Iraq, Afganistan, Guantanamo etc (and lobby your governemnts about them too)

    Fi amanillah

  • Sorry coz I commented the picture in Spanish coz to express it’s a little bit easier for me…

    Hay que tener en cuenta las consecuencias de este genocidio. Sabemos que hay muertos y los heridos que van a guardar huellas físicas toda la vida pero lo que quiero saber hoy es como los jóvenes y los niños van a vivir o más bien sobrevivir? (los jóvenes primero porque son mas débiles que los adultos!) Esos jóvenes no tienen ninguna inocencia, ninguna!!!!!

    Ya de niño están enfrentados a la visión de muertos y en general es de miembros de su propia familia. Cuantos huérfanos hay?! Como un niño puede vivir así?
    Israel sabe claramente como destruir a un pueblo. Primero la ocupación de todo el territorio, luego la destrucción de los minúsculos territorios que “parecen” quedar en manos de los palestinos. Y al mismo tiempo de la destrucción de lo material hay también la eliminación física: el genocidio!

    SobhnAllah!

    Y todo el mundo no dice nada como si no hubiera sido nada. Cómo es posible?
    No tenemos que olvidarlos en nuestras du’as inch’Allah!

    Somos aquí pero nuestro espíritu es allí, con ellos, de verdad!!!!. El profeta Muhammad, que la paz y las bendiciones están en él, dijo: “Todos los creyentes son como un solo cuerpo, y si sus ojos padecen, el entero cuerpo sufre dolor” (si no me equivoco)
