Gaza, My thoughts

I feel  a need to write about this because of all the horrible pictures and videos i keep seeing on my Facebook.
I am fasting and the last thing i need to see is upsetting scenes of innocent people being killed and mutilated.



My question is has Islam become too political?
 Yes i know Islam is a way of life and it has its own polities. but have we got so political that we have forgotten about the spiritual side, the side that bring up peace and calm in our crazy lives. This is the month to reconnect with our spiritual side to become closer to our creator.
But yet i am bombarded by these scenes of chaos, designed to make one angry and upset. Taking me away from the purpose of this beautiful month.

We should make dua for the people in Gaza and any other people who are oppressed in this world. Oppression in any form is unacceptable.
Stop posting the carnage and send donations to the charities helping these countries insha allah.




Here are some websites to charities for those who truly want to help;
