Do you want to do something to help the state of our family in Gaza? Does it hurt you to constantly see the state they are in, the terror, the innocent lives of children constantly being taken? Well here is the ultimate solution. Please take the time to read through this post by Shaykh Abu Esa, may Allah reward him, best thing I have read so far on what is happening and what we as the Ummah are supposed to do.

Above protests, above awareness, above emailing senators and government officials, and above boycotting- the first step to help our family in Gaza, the first step towards victory coming to the Muslims is for us to keep our covenant with Allah. Allah has PROMISED victory to those who are steadfast and hold on to the deen and fulfill their covenant to Him.
Honestly if we are attending a bunch of protests, if we are boycotting this and that but missing our five daily prayers and not making du’a or asking for forgiveness for our mistakes…then we are missing the point.
ACTION ITEMS: Hold fast to the obligatory prayers (if anyone needs a Fajr wake up call, shoot me a message and let’s work on it together), keep your extended family in your du’as especially in your sujood (anyone anywhere who is suffering), and make istighfar, let’s make lot’s of istighfar.
Being kind doesn’t mean you should be naive too. Smarten up, figure out people’s moves, motives and intentions, open your eyes, but always, always, always be respectful and offer a helping hand when you can.
This life isn’t for the blind-minded, but an active mind should never harden your heart.
