Praying to Allah for His help in these trying times for Muslims.
Re: “Seven years: from (Israeli) military defeat to (Saudi) sectarian blowback” (CI, August 2013). Ya Allah, we hear and we obey! O Allah, close the ranks of the committed Muslims from the Schools of Thought and give them fath al-mubin (clear victory). O Allah, You are our Lord and you love du‘a. This is our du‘a for the sake of Your Nabi (pbuh) and for the sake of this past month of Ramadan, your personal choice of fasting and ‘ibadah of yours. Ya Arham al-raahimin, we humbly place our needs before You. My personal salams to Abu Dharr whose articles we benefit from immensely.
