Palestine is bleeding. The current uprising started to take hold after the brutal assault by the Zionist regime on Muslims worshipping at Masjid Al-Aqsa in the sacred city of Al-Quds on the holy night of Laylatul Qadr; however, the real catastrophe, or “Nakba”, began 73 years ago. That was when Palestine was invaded and bit by bit was confiscated by colonist aggressors to the point where their autonomy is now reduced to a 2 square km strip of land known as Gaza.
It is said that the Holy Prophet (SAW) stated: “The greatest struggle (jihad) is to speak a truthful word in the presence of a tyrannical ruler”. It is the responsibility of the Muslim ummah to take a stand against the oppression faced by the people of Palestine, Yemen, Kashmir and many others at the hands of tyrants.
