Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,

I came across this video on this blog and I'm not sure the shock of what I watched has actually settled in yet.

I keep on realising how many blessings Allah azza wa jal has blessed me with. The comfort of my house, the food I eat, the clothes I wear and yet I know I'm not grateful enough.

This video is not for the weak-hearted. It's about a toddler, a baby, who was killed in Gaza. Burned. My Sister is pregnant and about to give birth and I know the feeling of attachment a Woman has with her child. I also know how innocent and adorable little children are... truly a blessing of Allah.



I think only people with cruel soulless hearts can do something like this. Something so inhumane. The Israelis said they did not intentionally target children, but this is a lie. Doctors and other witnesses said Children were deliberately killed and from short-range.

Why so? My Sister and I were discussing it and it all seems so similar to what Pharoah did to the people during his time- the children at that time were killed so that they could not defeat the Pharoah.

We all know generations after generations of Palestinians are involved in defending their Country... could this have been one of their policies?

Wa Allahu Aaalam... :(

I have to give it to the Palestinians for their sabr and tawakkul in Allah. I noticed that whenever they came upon the dead they would say, 'HasbunAllah wa na'mal wakeel' [Allah is sufficient for us and he is the best disposer of our Affairs]. A Muslim is required to call to Allah in times of need and calamity and our first reaction to any calamity is a test from Allah.

At the end, the doctor says, 'Where is Islam? Where are the Muslims?' - and that is something we should all be thinking. Where are we?

May Allah SWT easen our affairs. Ameen.

I am speechless. I don't know who to blame? The Israelis? The Palestinians themselves? Or us the numb people comfortably sitting in our homes.

Allah will prevail in the end; and the liars will lose.

Hajar - InshaAllah. We have to keep our trust and hope in Allah, because they may plot and plan but the best of Planner is Allah.
