يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱصْبِرُوا۟ وَصَابِرُوا۟ وَرَابِطُوا۟ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ 

“O you who believe, be patient, compete with each other in patience, stand on guard, and fear Allah ﷻ, so that you may be successful.” (Surah Al- ‘Imran, Ayah 200)



Amidst the unyielding trials they face, our Palestinian brothers and sisters showcase an unwavering Muslim identity. No matter the circumstance, their faith remains unshaken, their Islamic identity intact. They exemplify the true essence of steadfastness in Islam – holding onto the Kalima, diligently performing Salah, and living the commandments of Allah ﷻ with resilience. Their example prompts us to introspect: how can we, too, nurture and uphold our Muslim identity, ensuring it remains steadfast and visible, regardless of our life situations?


The resilience of the Palestinian people is profoundly rooted in their gratitude towards Allah d, even in the face of profound loss and hardship. Their ability to find reasons to thank Allah ﷻ, whether after losing loved ones or facing daily struggles, is a profound lesson in faith. This deep-seated gratitude in adversity is not just resilience; it's a beacon of spiritual strength. It challenges us to adopt a similar outlook – to meet our trials with gratitude, to seek solace and solutions in our faith, and to always turn to Allah ﷻ for guidance and support.


Unity is the backbone of the Palestinian community. In the face of hardship, their solidarity is unwavering. They embody the true spirit of Ummah – no one is left behind, and everyone is considered part of an extended family. This sense of oneness, of shared struggle and mutual support, is a beacon for all Muslims. It prompts us to ponder: How can we, as a global Muslim community, foster this sense of unity, ensuring that we stand together, support each other, and face challenges as one family under the guidance of Allah ﷻ?

Everything You Need to Know

“The Messenger of Allah ﷺ ordained Sadaqatul Fitr to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakat for the person who gives it before the Eid prayer; but it is a mere Sadaqah for the one who gives it after the prayer.” [Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah]
