Moved by Faith

How can I feel happiness when I can hear
the children's cries from Iraq and Afghanistan
from Palestine and Kashmir
from Chechyna and Somalia

How can I sleep soundly at night when I know
the strife and struggle of my brethren in Libya and Syria
My brethren in Bosnia and Lebanon

How can I say that the world's a peaceful place
when I hear the sad, entrenched grief of mothers who lost their sons
Of wives who lost their husbands to wars
Of children who lost their parents to persecution

How can I be happy knowing that tomorrow
a child in Africa may breathe their last because of starvation?

How can I laugh till tears flow down my cheeks
When my Mujahideen brethren are killed fighting for liberation
when my brothers and sisters are persecuted for no reason other than
believing in the Almighty

O, what shame I feel,
I truly have failed thee O my brethren...

O Almighty, hear my plead
please bring Sakinah [tranquillity] to the oppressed
Replace their grief with joy
And their tears with laughter
And their oppression with freedom!

O the Almighty who hears all prayers!
please bring mankind back to Your Straight Path.
Fill this world with justice and tranquillity
as before this, it was filled with oppression and tyranny

Babar Ahmad: 7 years illegally detained, 7 years of injustice

Peace and Blessings to all readers,

I request your help with a very important cause, especially for those of you who live in the United Kingdom. A British citizen has been illegally detained for 7 years. Babar Ahmad has been detained in the UK for 7 years without trial fighting extradition to the USA under the controversial no-evidence-required Extradition Act 2003. In June 2011, the Houses of Parliament, Joint Committee on Human Rights urged the UK government to change the law so that Babar Ahmad’s perpetual threat of extradition is ended without further delay. Since all of the allegations against Babar Ahmad are said to have taken place in the UK, we call upon the British Government to put him on trial in the UK and support British Justice for British Citizens.

I not only appeal to all Muslims, since a Muslim is the brother (or sister) of another Muslim, and as the Prophetic hadith states: "Feed the hungry, visit the sick and set free the captives." - Sahih Al-Bukhari; but I also to appeal to all who believe in upholding justice for the falsely accused. In a post-9/11 area, many governments have failed to fulfil a fundamental human right- the right of an individual to be given a fair trail. 

For any reader who lives in the UK, please sign the following petition and please forward it to family, friends and colleagues. Keep in mind that anyone could be the next Babar Ahmad- the fasely accused and illegally detained without evidence. Wouldn't you want someone to stand up for you and declare your innocence?
