Helping Oppressed Muslims

What is our stance concerning the slaughter of Muslims in Palestine and other parts of the world that is happening right now, where houses are being destroyed, farms are being wrecked, children are being killed, the wounded are being detained in the streets, houses are being bombarded and people are being prevented by the Jews and others, from buying the food and drink that they need?

What can I, as a Muslim, do?

What the world is doing with Israeli atrocities in Gaza?

Ongoing Israeli Airstrikes Kill 14 In Gaza, Death Toll 121 reports Countercurrents.

Israel bomb hits disabled centre in Gaza says Al Jazeera

Israel targets Gaza mosque as death toll passes 120 reports The Hindu.

News – and Muslim News – such as the above do not matter!

Watching World Cup is more important than voicing concern for human life.

Who cares whether a Muslim is burnt alive or a mosque is destroyed in Gaza!

What the International community and Human Rights organisations are doing?

Where are the people who designed the slogan ‘War on terror’? Sleeping? or Pretending to sleep?

Stop hypocrisy and be a man. Be a human being.

Stop double-standards and show that you care. By stopping the aggressors!!

Thread Bared

 

Muslims have been at the receiving end. Rape and Loot at the hands of the powers that be. In and around MuzaffarNagar, a town in Uttar Pradesh in Northern India.

Reproducing here the Exclusive Cover Story on Muzaffarnagar riots published in the current issue of Outlook India News Magazine. The story brings into focus the face of shameless India. The brazen facts brought to us by the magazine’s writer/reporter, Neha Dixit, scream to tell the world that this happens only in India. The naked dance of communalism and organised rape at the hands of a heartless village chief! A tearful saga of a community that struggles to survive! Read on… Continue reading

A du’aa from the bottom of a Believer’s heart

Young man he was. Always of caring and helpful nature. Would get upset at the slightest sight of oppression.

One day he sees two men fighting. He sides with the oppressed. In a bid to stop fighting, he gives a blow to the oppressor. The person falls dead.

He was a very sensitive youth. He feels sorry for his unintentional killing.

The king who was greatest oppressor would not leave this youth. How dare someone kills a man of the ruler’s clan. He  orders that the ‘killer’ be arrested and brought in chains.  Continue reading

I am a Muslim, alhamdulillah! Is my pocket also a Muslim?

Zakah and Ramadhaan are seen as twins. In Ramadhaan, we not only fast but we also give Zakah, alhamdulillah. Even though it is a not a rule that the Zakah be given only in this month, we give Zakah in Ramadhaan because of amassing greater rewards in this blessed month. We have to give Zakah anyway, so why not give in a Month which is Full of Blessings Unlimited?

Interesting point to note is that both Zakah and Sawm (Fasting) were made obligatory in the same year, the Second Year of Hijrah.
