We cannot keep silent. One day they may come for you and your family next. We must raise our voices and speak up! Remember WWII and Nazi Germany!! History tends to repeat itself but we can stop this inhumane treatment and these Houses of Horror!!

Life Matters

i confess to seeing things most
encounter only in nightmares,
or read about in reports from

is this not one human life after another
herded without recourse? is not one life–
regardless of origin, belief, status–

worth more than all else in our world?
i do not understand the human race

*But you know who we tend to forget that Allah loves?*

The mother who manages to get up for Fajr despite sleeping less than an hour because her baby was up all night.

The young person who is fighting depression but still musters the strength to get through the day because of a belief that he has in Allah.

The woman who has to speed through her prayer because her little one is crying.

The man who lays down the mat and prostates whilst at work.

The lady who wears the hijab correctly in public despite the pressures.

The student who lowers his…
