29th Ramadhan 1435 / Madrasah Ramadhan
Normally, I dedicate this entry for us to look back and reflect on how much have we achieved so far- Did we fulfil all our goals set at the beginning of the fasting month? Or we were busy with our lives to dedicate extra time and money for ibadah?
But this year, this Ramadhan has witnessed the peak of ongoing slaughter and attack by Zionist on our brothers in Palestine; it’s as though it’s an INSULT to the holy month itself, it’s as though they are saying ‘we don’t give a damn of your Holy Month’, with more and more killings and slaughter on the children, women and civilian.
BUT, because it has happened in the month Ramadhan, it has REOPENED, REAWAKENED, REMINDING us and the world again what long been going on in Gaza, REVEALING for the world to see all the secrets and excuses and lies that were kept and not-so-kept hidden before.
Because it is Ramadhan, more people, both Muslims and non-Muslims are much more aware of the apartheid and genocide going on in Palestine. Because it is Ramadhan, more and more truth is revealed to the world.
Because it is Ramadhan, regardless of religions and races, we try to contribute, even if in the least possible way- reminding and educating each other, or boycotting Israel-products, or donating funds for them; and we keep on praying for them.
Only those who choose to be blind will keep on being blind.
Ramadhan may have come to an end; but our prayers and small efforts shouldn’t.
Tomorrow when we wake up and celebrate Eid, please remember that our brothers and sisters, our mothers and fathers, our grandparents and our children in Palestine are still being killed and being bombed mercilessly.
Keep on sending our dua’s for them. Keep showing our support for them.
Kerana Janji Allah itu pasti!
Last but not least, Eid Mubarak, everyone!
