Hope for Gaza: Prayers for Peace & Mercy

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Assalamu Alaikum waRahmatullahi waBarakatuh

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. We've conducted rally's, wrote to
the organisations that are in positions of power, and signed endless
petitions….Unfortunately, our efforts demanding justice have been

AsMuslims we are aware that only Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) can help us
in times of need, when we have been ignored by organisations that can
make changes, when our efforts are fruitless, what do we do? We turn to
Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala!!)

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.

We have decided to call for the following campaign, to coincide with the
current month of Muharram that we are in and the day of Ashura. This
campaign will require two days of your time and for all who can
participate, here are the requirements:

  • To fast for the 9th and 10th of Muharram
  • To stand in Qiyam ul Layl (Night Prayer) on the night of the 9th and 10th of Muharram

If you cannot do the full two days, then please do what you can, even if
it's just an hour of 'Ibadah. We must remember that our fasting and
praying (as with all forms of 'Ibadah) are done 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, 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 your friends, family, to local Masjids,
College/Universities, and Community Centre's etc... 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.
