30 Cups of Love - Day 17

Every family has a certain theme in which their daily conversations revolve around. Ours is politics.

When I created this blog, I promised myself I will keep it "politics-free", and will only share my thoughts on photography, cats, baking, and random trivial things. This is the main reason why I chose not to speak. 

I will not speak, I will only whisper..

For you cannot keep your silence while your eyes are welling up with tears as you're watching young men defy bullets with their bare chests, young women being arrested and subjected to physical abuse.

You cannot keep your silence while you watch with an aching heart, children, barely 10 years old, being tortured, most brutally, then killed and returned to their family while the whole world watches. 
Or rather, while the whole world ignores..

But what else can one do but whisper..? ..Syria, may Allah be with you..

Ameen. JAK for reminding of us of the struggles and pain of our dear brothers and sisters. May Allah give them victory.
I recently found your blog and am enjoying it so much.

I created my blog because I realized I was tired of speaking. But sometimes, you just have to let it out. Whisper on, sister.

Ameen to the 'adiyaa.

A whisper can do great things too....everything that comes form the heart can make a difference. We join you in your kind whisper and keep the people of Syria in our prayers.
Take Care Mariam.

You are right. It is difficult to keep silent on certain issues. Traveling throughout Dubai, Lebanon, and Saudi has troubled me to see the way South Asians are treated and not given any rights in these countries. The governments have established a system of racism and injustice. I feel this need to do something. I then begin to think about those in Sudan, Libya, Syria, and everywhere else oppression and injustice is rampant. It is an overwhelming feeling...and then I remember the strongest weapon I du'a. Keep praying...Allah (swt) has promised victory.
