Calling all my dear Imams and Khateebs,
Can you spare a khutbah tomorrow to bring awareness to the case of the innocent and oppressed people of Syria, Homs and Baba Amr?
Here are some talking points:
1-How Muslims should be like one strong structure helping each other.
2-The obligation of Muwala' (assisting and sympathizing)
3-The role of the Muslims in helping the oppressed.
4-The virtue of shafa'ah- interceding for the week with those who have the power.
5-The responsibility to enjoin good and forbid evil.
6-The Messenger of Allāh and his example in supporting the week.
7-The concern of the Prophet for the Ummah.
8-The du‘ā’ of the Prophet for the oppressed.
9-Bring examples from the sahaba and history of Islam.
1-Make thorough du‘ā’' for Syria and Homs.
2-Do du‘ā’' nawazil in the fard ṣalāh or in public qiyam.
3-Encourage donation for the help of Syria.
4-Encourage people to write and blog about it.
5-Help college students to bring this case to their campus.
6-Call people to speak to politicians.
7-Encourage people to contact Russian and Chinese embassies to condemn their support to the oppressive regime of Syria.
8-Show passion in condemning this greatest injustice.
9-Speak about it regularly in the masjid.
My dear imām and Khateeb, by the time you read this perhaps another 10 more innocent lives have already perished in Syria.
Do your part. Take an action. Tomorrow.
