    Hope for Gaza : Prayers for Peace & Mercy

    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

    Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Islam,
    We are all aware of the suffering our brothers and sisters in Palestine have endured over the last 60 years. The situation has now escalated to crisis point, and over 400 have been killed, not to mention the thousands who have been injured both physically and mentally with the unjust torture they have witnessed.

    As Muslims we are aware that only Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) can help us in any situation at any times, so lets turn to Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala!!) again and again.

    This is a plea to all Muslims out there, to unite, to stand together and pray for our brothers and sisters in Palestine . We cannot disregard the power of dua, and in times like this, when we feel we have little or no control, we can turn to The One who has All Control and Power.

    Lets fast as much as we can and stand in prayer during the third part of the night according to our capacity. We must remember that our fasting and praying (as with all forms of 'Ibadah) are done solely for the pleasure of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) and for Him alone. However, the virtues of the dua of a fasting person, and the dua of one who has forsaken their sleep have been highlighted in the following hadith:
    The Messenger of Allah (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) said; Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler. [al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

    Abu Hurairah (radiuallahu anhu) narrated that Allah's Messenger (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: 'In the last third of every night our Rabb (Cherisher and Sustainer) (Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) descends to the lower-most heaven and says; "Who is calling Me, so that I may answer him? Who is asking Me so that may I grant him? Who is seeking forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him?"' [Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith Qudsi]

    We sincerely ask for the Ummah to do what they can, there are many of us, and together we CAN make a difference by the permission of Allah, we can make a CHANGE. Let's show others how we conduct ourselves in hard times, how we show patience and perseverance, and most importantly, how we unite in times of hardship.

    The Messenger of Allah (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Believers are like a structure, parts of which support one another. The believers, in regard to mutual love, affection, fellow-feeling is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever." [Sahih al-Bukhari & Muslim]

    Please circulate this email to every one you know... Let's make this a collective effort.

    Insha'Allah we are successful in our efforts. May Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) help all the Muslims who are suffering around the world, may He listen to our sincere duas and forgive us of our sins. Ameen.
    JazakAllahu khairan
    Was Salaamu Alaikum
