Duaa request

scattredthoughts:

Assalam o alykum,
Can we all please make dua for my best friend’s mom, Masooda aunty’s health? She has a blocked artery and is having an operation on Monday.
May Allah bless her with health and a speedy recovery. May He make her illness and pain a means to wash off her sins. (Ameen)

Alhamdulilah the surgery was successful. JazakAllah Khayr y’all for reblogging and making duaas.

I feel the need to write a post about what’s happening in Pakistan right now. First of all, it’s sad and shameful that the police is firing tear gas, rubber bullets (and I suppose actual bullets) on innocent citizens including women and children.
People at the sit in want a change and fair elections, that makes sense too. What I don’t understand is the fact that what was supposed to be a peaceful protest has gone as far as breaking the law, the agreement they had with the authorities regarding the protest and breaking into the Parliament House. We do understand and believe that the elections weren’t fair and I imagine this issue can be and should be resolved with negotiations between the political parties. Your vision is to make a new and better Pakistan, you want to bring change, but to do so, you got to start at an individual level. What kind of change are you planning to bring if it includes you breaking the laws in the first place?
If forcing people to resign like that was so easy, then there would be revolution marches and sit ins every time someone doesn’t like a minister. If people don’t want to disperse even after the police intervention because of the fact that they are breaking the laws, then stop comparing it to Gaza or Ferguson please.

I neither support the government, nor the police, nor the political parties that are doing the sit-in. But it just annoys me that people are making it all dramatic and creating a hype, portraying the public solely as victims. Seriously people, you don’t want to get hurt, go back home. Let the city return to its daily business.
luxpire: Idk bro. There are many white people that have an open mind but now and then you come across people that have white supremacy and racism ingrained in their heads since a very young age and honestly, they are more worthy of pity than anything else.
hayalq , muslima-nadjoua : Now that I think of it, you guys are right. Following the sunnah of the companions of our Prophet (saw) who, when treated viciously or called names, stayed patient and polite, inspiring many people by the beauty of Islam subhanAllah.  I suppose I am aggressive about it and find what she did intolerable and unacceptable because I had been living in this neighbourhood since a very long time; I have given back to the community through an investment of time and energy much more than she has perhaps and no one gives her a right to question our presence here.
laurathehottie : Everyone has opinions and you are right that certain factors in our surroundings influence and shape those opinions, however, what we think/ how we feel about something or someone doesn’t give us the right to speak of/to people in derogatory terms. That’s just lack of education and respect. SubhanAllah though, Allah is always watching. I was reading the beginning of Surah Al-Araaf this morning, and it felt so relevant. Whatever good and bad we do is recorded and we would certainly be questioned about our bad deeds and rewarded for our good ones subhanAllah.

My grandma is visiting us from Pakistan and she wears abaya and a huge hijab. Mama told me that today, for the first time in eight years, a woman called them both terrorists, asked them what they are doing in canada and told them to return to ‘Afghanistan’.

I am so surprised that people have such an ignorant mindset in a diverse and peaceful country like Canada. I also don’t understand why my mom didn’t say something mean back and adhered to keeping a good image of Islam. I am just infuriated right now.
