Welcoming in the new muslim year.

Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Although this new year hasn't started on a good note for us muslims, as a result of the ongoing airstrikes on Gaza have left hundreds of muslims dead, there are ways in which we as individuals can help ourselves to improve. If we follow these few simple things we can avoid violence and crimes against other people, be them muslim or not.

I pray that Allah S.W.T Stops the violence in the Gaza soon. Ameen.
So far more than 270 muslims killed compared to only 4 on the Israeli side!!! and the air strikes are still ongoing!!! PLZ STOP this Massacre of innocent people!!!

The latest headlines on CNN as follows:

Gaza relief boat 'rammed' by Israeli vessel

An Israeli patrol boat struck a boat carrying doctors and supplies to Gaza early today in the Mediterranean Sea, witnesses and Israeli officials said. CNN correspondent Karl Penhaul was aboard the 60-foot Dignity when the boats collided. It was "very severely rammed" by the Israeli boat, Penhaul said. Also on the Dignity were several human rights activists, including former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney. full story

This is terrorism!!!

On a lighter note, the following are verses from the Quraan, if followed by any nation(esp the Israelis at this time), will bring peace Inshallah!

In the Quraan Surah 49 v 11 and 12 we are told as follows;

O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others:
It may be that the latter are better than the former:
Nor let some women laugh at others:
It may be that the latter are better than the former:
Nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other,
Nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames:

O we who believe! Avoid suspicion as much as possible: for suspicion in some cases is a sin:
And spy not on each other,
Nor speak ill of each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, ye would abhor it ... But Fear Allah:
For Allah is Oft- Returning, Most Merciful.
