    First of all I would like to congratulate you on discovering this piece. Secondly I think that the duty of supporting oppressed muslim brothers and sisters in third world countries, or where ever they might be for that matter, rises above and beyond that of the Saudian residents. I think it should be taken upon by every individual as a personal responsibility and obligation to do their part to the best of their ability. May Allah guide us all and give us the courage and strength to solve the issues of our fellow muslims for the well being of the overall Ummah. Amen.


      I thought muslims were like body. One part of body hurts, every part of the body feels the pain.
      Its said to see this happening...what can we muslims do We are busy sleeping with west, and out brothers and sisters are dying. We are busy adapting the ways and life styles of the west, and our brothers and sisters are dying. We are busy defending the ideaologies of west, while our brothers and sisters are dying. We are busy watching MTV and Indian movies, while our brothers and sisters are dying. We are busy making excuses while our brothers and sisters are dying... very said, shame on all of us.

      We wish we could do something, don't we? Yeah i know!

            this is one of the most prominent sign of the closeness of the day of judgement

            Dr sahib you are exactly right, most of just utter a few words of remorse and then go back to living our materialistic lives, unlikely to look back.If our beloved brothers/sister are going to survive, it wont be due to the piggish governments aid, but due to contributions to charaties. I know very few charaties have been set up for this specific task , but atleast there are some, i am sure all privately funded. I just wish the our ignorant muslim nations recognize these disheartening circumstances and try to resolve it as soon as possible. We should all contribute also, i will urge all you guppies, even for those who are not muslim(for sake of humanity) to make donations to these charties.

            CM you have made very proud, if every muslim was like this, we wouldnt need heaven, we would already be there. Keep it up man
            Just be careful while donating your money, alot of people use these kinds of emails to scam money(not to say that this is a scam)from recipients.

            In the end i would like all of us to pray for our dear brothers and sisters out there suffering...................may Allah shelter them with his kindness, and relieve them of all their miseries and sorrows. Amen.
