Palestine: we feel your pain
by Samia Ahmed
The conflict in Palestine has caused much distress and concern, with many people suffering for nearly years. As Muslims, it’s natural for us to feel heartbroken when we witness such suffering, but we can take solace from the Quran. At the core of every believer is feeling the pain and suffering for others. Many of us feel numb, bitterly distraught at what we witness daily on our screens.
Al-Nu’man ibn Bashir reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said,
“The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy,and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.”
[Bukhari and Muslim]
The Quran teaches us fundamental principles like justice,compassion, empathy, and uprightness, which guide our beliefs and actions. In this presentation, we’ll show the actions that align with Islamic teachings to address the situation in Palestine.
The Quran delivers a crucial message about the significance of performing acts of charity, kindness, and compassion towards our fellow human beings. Muslims are urged to support those in need, promote justice and fairness, and assist the less fortunate. Islam is all for the betterment of society and elevating humans to a high stature.
“Oh you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.” [Quran 5:8]
