Ramadan Reflections: Day 18

Bismillah... In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful

Yesterday in Egypt lot of innocent people have been murdered by criminals of Sisi's "government". Yesterday was also the anniversary of battle of Badr, the first battle between truth and falsehood. So many Muslims around the world are suffering , subhanallah. Every single day, watching the TV channels, remind us what atrocities are talking place around the world. Yesterday I tuned into Ramadan TV to watch the Penny Appeal for Syria. One sister called to donate money and couldn't stop crying. I was thinking how hard my heart must be that while hearing about the sufferings of our brothers and sisters in Syria, Egypt, Palestine, Iraq, Bangladesh, Burma and so many other countries, no tears are shed. May Allah subhana wa ta'ala have mercy on me and enable me to relate to my brothers and sisters around the world, ameen!

Without a doubt, there are plenty of people who are crying and making sincere dua every single day of the year mashAllah. In our faith, Muslim ummah is seen as one body. If one limb hurts, the whole body feels the pain. Brotherhood is very important for us. That's why watching people in hardship in Egypt makes us sad and angry. We make dua that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala bless the victims of yesterday with jannatul ferdous, the highest Garden and give strength and patience to their loved ones, ameen! 

Commenting on yesterday's event, Sheikh Abu Eesa has said it brilliantly on his FB page " Our dead are in jannah, in sha Allah. The martyrs of Egypt and Syria have only moved on and upwards

Yet your *living* ones O Tamarod supporters, O Sisi, O Assad, are burning inside mentally. You have destroyed yourselves. Your lives will remain tortured forever with this blood on your hands. Your stupidity and brazenness makes me laugh, not cry. AND the Fire awaits you. Well done."

As you know today is 18th of ramadan alhamdulillah. Only two days to go till the last 10 days of Ramadan inshallah.  Let us remember our Muslim brothers and sisters around the world frequently in our duas. 

O Allah, we ask you to restrain them by their necks and we seek refuge in You from their evil. ( Abu Dawud) 

Allah is sufficient for us and the best of those on whom to depend. (At-Tirmidhi)

O Allah forgive all the believers, men and women and all Muslims, men and women. Unite their hearts in mutual love, and set aright their mutual affairs and help them against Your and their enemies. O Allah curse the unbelievers among the people of the book who belie the Prophets and who fight Your chosen ones. O Allah divide them, and make their feet tremble and send down upon them Your punishment, which You do not turn away from the people of sin. (Musannaf 'Abd al-Razzaq)
