Alhamdulillah, in my own life, it is the only thing that keeps me seeing the positive.
I think my point is: while we place our trust in Allah Taa'la, it is also encumbent on us to make a sincere effort in all that we do.
While I acknowledge and praise the efforts of all those who have been/ are ernestly striving in this particular cause......I wonder if we are doing enough
What else can we do, to lay full-on pressure on our governments, the UN, etc?
What else can we do, to get more media coverage on the plight of these prisoners, the unfairness of their trials, etc?
Are we doing the same thing over the last decade......but expecting to get different results?
At which point do we say, the time for speaking and petitioning is over.......its time to get up in arms (not necessarily in the literal sense), for our voices to be heard?
I come from a country that only saw aparteid and the oppression of all non-white residents being (completely) over-turned in 1994.
After decades of protests, sanctions, etc - the only thing that broke this country free, was the threat
of unrest and civil war in the early 1990's.
Is it not time to step up the efforts a notch? - for the sake of our brothers and sisters.....
Just some of my thoughts.....
