        Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

        Allah tests his slaves –

        لَا يُسْأَلُ عَمَّا يَفْعَلُ وَهُمْ يُسْأَلُونَ
        He is not questioned about what He does, but they will be questioned.


        كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَنَبْلُوكُم بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً ۖ وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ

        Every soul will taste death. And We test you with evil and with good as trial; and to Us you will be returned.

    Friend of Yasir Qadhi, Abu Eesa made this dua,

    FOR THE INNOCENT: you are being slaughtered as we remain powerless standing by with little but du‘a and penny collections. Forgive us, for you have already achieved forgiveness! I say what our Lord says:

    “Whether you are killed in Allah’s cause or die, Allah’s forgiveness and mercy are better than anything people can gather together.” (3:156)

    Ya Rabb, I praise You for your Wisdom. Enter our deceased into Your Paradise, ease the difficulties of all those suffering who remain behind, and reward them with nothing but the best ya Rabb. Ameen.

    FOR THE CRIMINALS: enjoy yourself whilst you can. Your time is short. I call upon my Lord against you by the supplication of His Prophet Musa, ‘alayhis-salam:

    “Our Lord, obliterate their wealth and harden their hearts so that they do not believe until they see the agonizing torment.” (10:88)

    Ya Rabb, I praise You for your Wisdom. I thank You for soothing the pain of the Believers by creating Your Hellfire that will ultimately give a deserving punishment for all these oppressors and criminals. Keep them upon their kufr and evil so that they may be humiliated in both worlds ya Rabb. Ameen.

    Ameen Alhamdulilah. May these oppressors be in damnation and disgrace forever. May they never cease to regret these moments and may they be barred from guidance to Islam lest they are saved.
