This is an urgent appeal from Viva Palestina Malaysia (website / Facebook). If you are not in Malaysia, please contact your local Islamic Relief centre or any other authorised organisation that is doing something similar. Israel has mercilessly launched another attack on Gaza and martyred at least 25 people so far, including elderly people and children. We are praying Operation Protective Edge will not have an aftermath worse than that of Operation Pillar of Cloud which took place during Ramadan in 2012 whereby 170 Palestinians died and over 1000 were injured. Almost half of them were women and children.
The recent attack has left hundreds of Gazans injured and according to my friends who have been to Gaza, the hospitals have very limited medical supplies and equipments. Below you will find the names and ages of some of those who have been martyred in the last few days. Innalillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon.
Nothing can bring them back and since we can't physically be there for them please donate whatever amount you can and share this information with your family and friends. At the very least, please keep them and their family members in your prayers, especially during this significant and powerful month. In a way, I envy them. While Paradise awaits them, here I am worrying about my first world problems. The Palestinians know the true meaning of life because they know how fragile and temporary life in this world is.
May Allah reward them and their loved ones for their patience and may He guide us to the Straight Path. Ameen.
