The fact that you can’t post a Palestinian death toll without it becoming inaccurate in a matter of hours speaks volumes.

I won’t become a doctor.
Remember this:
One day you will be sick."

Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl 

This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).

    "If you want to test someone’s character, give him respect. If he has good character, he will respect you more, if he has bad character, he will think he is the best of all."
    Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a)


    The Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wasallim) instructed the believers, saying “He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hand; and if he has not strength enough to do it, then he should do it with his tongue( by speaking out against it ), and if he has not strength enough to do it, (even) then he should (abhor it) from his heart( by always disliking what is evil or harmful ), and that is the least of faith(Muslim: Book 1 : Hadith 79 & 81).”

    Do what is within your capabilities, and Allah shall reward you for your efforts and intentions. Know that in Allah’s Hands rests the fate of every single being of creation, and that He is the Ever Seeing, All Knowing, and Most Patient. He gives the oppressor a time till the Fateful Day, when the criminals shall exclaim “Woe be to me, I wish I were dust!” and on the same day those who suffered shall be given an eternal abode in Paradise.

    As the Ummah, we stand weak and divided. Yet it is clear that we still have some compassion left in our hearts for our brothers and sisters who are suffering not just in Palestine, but in every part of the world. Do you find it a coincidence, that Palestine is under the siege during the month of Ramadan? Has not Allah dedicated Ramadan as the greatest month of the year, the month in which His Word was revealed, the month in which the most people are saved from Hellfire, the month in which supplications are answered at each prayer, and at each breaking of the fast?

    Do your part, with whatever capabilities you have. Donate, Divest, Protest, Speak out, and Supplicate.

    And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. [2:186]
