Assalam alaikoum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,
This is such an impressive form of activism taken in Australia! There are many ways to spread awareness about the situation in Syria and this is one creative way of doing so.
I haven’t been following with the updates on Syria because most often than not, there are gruesome pictures of people being brutally murdered in the news and I cannot bear to see them. Ya Rabb, I feel so helpless that I can’t do much for them except dua. Can you imagine being trapped in a place where you have nowhere to run and hide and yet there are tyrants hunting you? I don’t think anyone is able to truly fathom what it feels like to be in their position.
Latest news is that the mujahideen are in Syria to help and insha’Allah victory. May Allah reward them for their sacrifice! Next place they should head is Myanmar to help the Rohingya Muslims. Subhan’Allah, so many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are being ruthlessly killed =,(
There’s a story which was narrated by Sh Navaid Aziz in the video (I’ve posted this before but reposting below) about the Sahabah, Abu Dhar (May Allah be pleased with him). When Abu Dhar was asked what made him decide to be the guarantor for the boy, his reply was “I saw a Muslim in need and I did not want anyone to say that a Muslim was in need and no one was there to help him”. I cried watching the video when it reminded me of Muslims around the world being oppressed and slaughtered and yet we are helpless. The Ummah is so weak that we are not even able to defend ourselves.. ya Rabb =,(
