Donation to Palestine Red Crescent Society this Eid al-Fitr

Thank you for continuing to support my little small business. Because of YOU, we were able to contribute a portion of our quarter sales to Palestine Red Crescent Society. Thank you so much for supporting us!

Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) is an officially recognized independent Palestinian National Society. Its mission is to provide humanitarian assistance as well as health and social services to Palestinians. It works towards preventing and allaying human suffering, protecting life and health, ensuring the respect of human dignity, preventing disease, and promoting health, social care and volunteering both in times of peace and war as well as during emergencies, crises and disasters.

PRCS will continue to focus on emergency medical response, disaster preparedness and response, social and healthcare services, physical and psychosocial rehabilitation, protection, respect of international humanitarian law, and improving operational systems and procedures.

Over the last six months, I have watched medical members of this organization save life after life, women children and men in the most abhorrent conditions. Despite the difficult circumstances they face in the Gaza Strip, their medical teams have been tirelessly working around the clock to fulfill their humanitarian responsibilities to the people in Gaza Strip. Even when they are facing the very same threats upon them including direct targeting of PRCS medical teams and individuals they remain steadfast in their humanitarian mission.

It has been hard to feel joyous this past Ramadan and Eid with all that is happening in this world especially while such a magnitude of human suffering is being displayed right before our eyes on our phones. Before social media, peoples’ suffering had a limited reach globally. Now, we all have a front row seat, so do not sit idle.

As an American, it is our civic duty to utilize the rights that the people before us fought so hard for. As Americans, we have the power to effectuate change through our freedom of assembly (protests), our freedom of speech (including social media), and freedom of petition to our government for a redress of grievances. So, call your representatives and let them know your grievances - especially those of which include injustices that our government is supporting with our taxpayer dollars. We have a duty to educate ourselves and others about how our taxpayer dollars are being used to sustain oppression. Keep sharing, liking, saving, commenting on every post of injustice you see on social media to boost them on the algorithm and continue the momentum of this freedom movement.

Palestinians deserve freedom and justice. One the largest protests in Washington D.C. took place last November fighting for those very rights and we must continue to fight not just as conscious and responsible American taxpayers but as human beings. That advocacy is saving lives. Six months since the onslaught of this genocide against the Palestinian people, we are starting to see the tide turning amongst elected officials because of that advocacy. So, if you are not already doing so, please contact your representatives and demand a permanent ceasefire now.

As a Muslim, Islam does not encourage us to be mere bystanders to any form of injustice; we are morally obliged to do what we can within our power to eradicate oppression without ourselves being the oppressor.

“O Believers! Stand firm for justice as witnesses for God even if it is against yourselves, your parents or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor:, God is best to ensure their interests. So do not let your desires cause you to deviate from justice. If you distort the testimony (evidence) or refuse to give it, then know that God is certainly All-Aware of what you do.” - Quran Translation 4:135

Islam teaches that even in the midst of great crisis, society must still function. So enjoy your Eid to its fullest but, while we celebrate in joyous moments do not forget the people of Palestine, Sudan, Congo, Uyghurs, Rohingya, USA Natives and any other oppressed people in this world in our joy. 

Eid Mubarak and Free Palestine. May Allah (God) protect everyone and bring peace to all inshAllah (God Willing). 

JazakAllah (May God reward you [with] goodness),
