These are the mothers, daughters, sisters and wives of Bahrain. 

These are the women the world forgot. 

These are the tears no one saw.

These are the cries no one heard. 

Bahrain: The truly forgotten people.

BILIN, West Bank (AP) — Residents of this Palestinian village have planted flowers in hundreds of spent Israeli tear gas grenades to honor those killed during their weekly protests against Israel’s West Bank separation barrier.

Mohammed Khatib, a village organizer, said Wednesday that the unusual garden is meant to show that life can spring from death.

Bilin has become a symbol of Palestinian protests against Israeli policies in the West Bank. The village’s struggle to regain land taken by the barrier was the subject of “Five Broken Cameras,” a documentary nominated for an Oscar last year.

Palestinians say the barrier, which cuts into the West Bank, amounts to a land grab. Israel says it’s needed to keep Palestinian attackers out. 

The Bilin garden commemorates Bassem Abu Rahmeh, a protest leader who was killed in 2009 when a tear gas grenade struck him in the chest during a demonstration. Bassem’s sister, Jawaher, died nearly two years later, a day after a weekly protest during which villagers said she inhaled Israeli tear gas.

During West Bank protests, Israeli troops often fire tear gas, stun grenades, rubber bullets and occasionally live rounds, portraying them as appropriate means against Palestinian stone throwers.

Beautiful dua.

Yes, acknowledging IS the first step, but know that taking action is the next.


Lack of patience, losing trust in Him brings all sorts of pains in our daily life.  No one ever said this road was going to be easy.  If it was supposed to be a walk in the park, we wouldn’t be here in the first place.  


This Week In History: 12-year-old Palestinian boy Muhammad al-Durrah is shot to death in his father’s arms by Israeli troops

On September 30, 2000, the second day of the second intifada, the father and son were caught in a cross fire and hid behind a concrete cylinder. For 45 minutes Jamal al-Durrah shielded his son from Israeli fire as several bullets narrowly missed them. He desperately waved and shouted: “Don’t shoot!” but to no avail.

Muhammad al-Durrah was shot four times and eventually slumped across his father’s legs, who was also shot and lost consciousness. 

An ambulance driver who tried to rescue the boy and his father was also killed, along with a jeep driver, and a second ambulance driver was wounded. Muhammad lay bleeding for at least 17 minutes before an ambulance was able to pick them up.

The Universality of Islam

Islam is not merely worship. Islam is a way of life.

It is activism. It is working proactively to promote good and forbid evil. It is standing up for the oppressed and using what you have to help the less fortunate. Muslims must work to make a positive impact on their communities and on the world. Yes, it is important to spend time in worshiping Allah (swt) in prayer and in solitude — but helping others and making a positive change in the world an in others is also worship.

We do not have much time in this world. Let us make the most of it.

“When Allah Almighty knows the good intention of someone He encompasses him with protection from sins.”
Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (ع) A’alam al-Din p. 301
