    I would just like to share a letter from a sister to leader of THE PEACE THRU JUSTICE FOUNDATION
    Assalam-o-alaikum, Brother Salaakhan:

    I am reflecting upon how Saddam Hussein was implicated to be behind the September 11 event and he was accused of harboring weapons of mass destruction, only to find out after his execution that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. Later on the president acknowledged how he acted on the misinformation given to him.

    Only Allah knows what is the truth. Who was behind all these attacks.

    Andy sent me this link from Christian Science Monitor

    In one of the languages-Punjabi spoken in Pakistan, a poet says, “if your enemy dies, do not rejoice for even your beloved is going to die.”

    How would it feel when your beloved will die? This man was a human being. He was someone’s father, son, husband, brother, nephew, friend…… We as Muslims don’t rejoice on a fellow Muslim’s death. We pray for him.

    At the end of the day, Allah is the one who is the Ultimate Source of Justice and Allah is the One who knows who is going to Hell or Heaven. We are not the ones to judge. At the end of the day we know another Muslim was killed. We are no one to judge him as good or bad for Allah is the One to decide upon that. We need to do our part, that is pray for his forgiveness, as this is one of his 6 rights upon us for just being a Muslim. We should have offered Salatul Janazah for him.

    We need to focus on the example of our Prophet (PBUH) how he conducted himself after the Battle of Badr upon the dead corpses of the most deadly opponents of Islam. He (PBUH) was in a pensive mood and only felt remorse for them, and had hoped, if only they could have had faith in One Allah.

    Our job is to educate all around us as to what is Islam and what is it like to be in a state of submission to Allah.

    “Inna Lillahe wa inna ilaihe raajay oon”
