Just Watch…and open your mind..


*Hikmah Ilminar*

January 13, 2009


As the world watches the grave events unfolding in the Gaza Strip, history is awaiting to document the actions humanity is about to take: 

 Shameful Inaction or Heroic Justice?  

It is human nature to feel all kinds of intense emotions towards the atrocities in Gaza: anger, sorrow, shame, fear, sadness….yet history is filled with stories of these very emotions resulting in dangerously wrong courses of action. It is evident, then, that these natural feelings act as fog: blurring our hindsight and preventing us from seeing the big picture. 

The question then is: in these trying times, how do we use hikmah (wisdom) instead of emotion when taking the right course of action for our Ummah? 

Join us for a special Ilminar as we answer this very question and in co-operation with Islamic Relief launch a unique ONLINE fundraising effort for our brothers and sisters in Gaza. Be among those whom history documents as partakers of heroic justice, and above all, those who embodied the true message of Islam.

As I sit on my bed, watching, weaping..

January 11, 2009

Is it really true? Is it really happening on this earth miles away? The news seems like an R rated horror movie!! How can it be real? What kind of monsters thrive on the blood of the innocent?

I worry about my education, and the bills I have to pay. 
They worry about their vulnerable lives, and if they survive another day. 
My biggest fear is getting a ticket, as I cruise my Cadillac.
Their fear is that the tank that has just left would turn around and come back.
Do you know the truth of where your money goes? 
Do you let the media deceive your mind?
Is this the truth nobody knows about?
Someone tell me. Tell me what to do. 

I sit and watch. I cry. I forget a bit. I move on. Repeat. 

I have done nothing and still do nothing. 

This is not a movie, this is real. This is not fake blood and make up, it hurts. These are not actors, they’re our brothers and sisters in humanity.

For us, it will merely be one night…just one night of not sleeping our full 8 hours…

They, on the other hand, have many countless sleepless nights…awake on a bed made of their home leftovers, afraid to hear the next striking missile…

Remember that you are one body with them…what hurts them, hurts you…
Their needs, are your needs…Their prayers, are our prayers…

Let’s join them…
