Palestine: Never Before has a people suffered such an injustice,
yet displayed resilience and resistance - like Never Before.
Discussions on Palestine and the Palestinian cause have included attempts
to link it to the struggle of South Africans under the apartheid regime
the struggle of the Vietnamese people

The conclusion,however,was that it cannot be compared to any

Hajj - The Journey of HeartsHajj - The Journey Of HeartsHajj - The Journey of Hearts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is debate over whether someone who performs Hajj should be called a Hajji. It is not something found in the Sunnah; rather it has an interesting backround in our cultural history. In antique days, when someone decided to perform the journey for Hajj, it was synonymous with bidding farewell to life on earth. This was due to the treacherous obstacles of traveling in the desert - trials such as sickness, starvation, and the struggles of the separate situations. An entire village might gather to bid those people farewell. When someone would go through such a remarkable journey and return alive, they would dedicate their lives to the worship and obedience of Allah. Gone was the cheating, or the lying, or the missed Salah. He was now a Hajji. Today, with the Jumbo jets and ocean liners and Mercedes busses, the facilitation of performing Hajj has taken away the luster of the title Hajji.

Editorial | Khader Adnan: His dignity. Our shame.
This week, Khader Adnan entered his third month of a hunger strike
against his unlawful detention and mistreatment at the hands of the Israeli military.
The deafening silence by world leaders and media at his plight shames us all.
By Hicham Yezzais (editor-in-chief of Ceasefire Magazine UK)
Palestinians protest in solidarity with Khader Adnan
Somewhere in the Middle East, a 33-year old man is today entering the 60th day of a hunger strike.
He is currently lying – as he has done for weeks – with one hand, and one leg,
shackled to his hospital bed. By the time you read this, he could be dead.
Of course, had he been an Iranian opposition journalist

REMARK: THIS JOURNAL MAY NOT BE VERY IMPORTANT.
This subject became irritating. every now and then some people come to my page asking if drawing is haram (forbidden) or not in Islam. the question itself is not what irritates, but some of the people asking the question. From my experience in dealing with these questioners, I could put them into the four following categories:
1. the Muslims who sincerely want to know the answer. some of these like drawing and wish to have a positive answer. but when they hear different fatwas (religious rulings) by different scholars, they feel confused. these people are welcome to ask. I can not tell them whether drawing is halal or haram. what I do usually is provide a link of an article by a Muslim scholar for them to read.
2. the Muslims who are literally lazy -I can't find a better word- to do their work in da'wah (presenting Islam to the world). these people don't do their j
Media's hypocrisyAssalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],Media's hypocrisy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, You probably heard of the tragic Connecticut school shooting, 20 children among 26 victims. As a Muslim, it grieves me to hear such horrible and sad news.
... but the hypocrisy of the media is OUTRAGEOUS.
I read in the news:
Dressed in black fatigues and a military vest, a heavily armed man walked into a Connecticut elementary school Friday and opened fire
The shooter, identified by three law enforcement officials as 20-year-old Adam Lanza, also was killed
The attacker, identified by law enforcement sources as Adam Lanza, opened fire on Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown
The woman found dead at the secondary crime scene was related to the shooter, a police news release said. Many media outlets have reported she was the shooter's mother, Nancy Lanza.
The mass shooting in Connecticut left 28 people dead, including 20 children. The
One Family in GazaNow that a new round of slaughter has started in Gaza, I thought you might like to watch how a Palestinian family coped with the incredible horror they went through the last time the Zionist state attacked them.

Just months after the Israeli assault that killed 1,390 Palestinians, I visited Gaza. Among dozens of painful stories I heard, one family stood out. I spent several days with Kamal and Wafaa Awajah, playing with their children, sleeping in the tent they were living in, and filming their story.
Wafaa described the execution of their son, Ibrahim. As she spoke, her children played on the rubble of their destroyed home. Kamal talked about struggling to help his kids heal from trauma.
What compelled me to tell the Awajah family's story? I was moved not only by their tragedy but by the love for their children in Wafaa and Kamal's every word.
Israel Shrinking Gaza Strip by 40 PercentIsrael Shrinking Gaza Strip by 40 Percent1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Map courtesy of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
To protect itself from Hamas rockets and tunnels, Israel is forcing tens of thousands of people out of their homes, turning their old neighborhoods into a no-man’s land.
This narrow strip of land that used to be called “the Gaza Strip,” already one of the more densely populated places on Earth, is growing dramatically smaller. The Israeli military, relentlessly and methodically, is driving people out of the 3-kilometer (1.8 mile) buffer zone it says it needs to protect against Hamas rockets and tunnels. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the buffer zone eats up about 44 percent of Gaza’s territory.
What that means on the ground is scenes of extraordinary devastation in

Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

KMD Contest ideaAssalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],KMD Contest idea3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In today's world, everyone who wants attention goes and slanders the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- and gets the attention. Of course these people can never affect the reputation and greatness of the prophet of God. but they are always desperately trying.
Some islamophobes invented a day to insult the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- under freedom of expression. Every year when the time comes, they encourage people to draw nasty drawings attempting to ridicule and insult the prophet.
Most of their drawings don't even deserve to be called art. some people can't even draw a straight line correctly but they do an effort just to insult the last prophet of Islam.
I am pretty sure this year they will try to do the same. but I have a good plan to counter their wicked plan.
This year, in sha'Allah [by God's will] I am planning to hold a contest called "Know Mohammed Day" (KMD) in the same time they hold their event. The purpose is to encoura

DMD Counter-Attackmy watchers will certainly notice that I uploaded many drawings in these 2 last days. and some may be wondering why. here is my reply:DMD Counter-Attack4 years ago in Personal More Like This
One day in 2010, while I was browsing DeviantArt, I faced a very shocking drawing, it was supposed to represent the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- but the one who drew it made sure to make his drawing incredibly dark, disgusting and super offending. I had never seen such a horrible drawing before and it left me speechless, in a negative way. At that time, I clicked the "report" button to report the drawing to DeviantArt admins as 'hate art'. after a few days, I got a reply stating that they do not see it as hate art. so they won't take any actions. it was upsetting to realize that some people don't care about others' feelings. and they choose offending and insulting ways to express their freedom. which is totally opposite to what I learned from the teachings of my religion. in Islam, we are taught to express our opinions without trying to delibera
