فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا : Verily, with hardship comes ease. [94:6]

*A summary of what is going on in Burma:*
Burma is located near China and India. There is a Muslim nation called Rohingya in Burma. They have another name, the Myanmar. The country is ruled by a Buddhist army. Muslims there represent about 10 percent of the population. Muslims there are subject to extermination and displacement.
This story is not new. This crime began a long time ago.

In 1784, a Buddhist king called “Bodawpaya” feared the spread of Islam in the region. From then on he began to persecute the Muslims. Buddhists have committed the worst crimes against them, such as burning children, killing, torture, and other forms of persecution because their only sin is that they are Muslim, nothing more!!

When the Muslims of Burma tried to escape, no Muslim country was willing to accept them. The only option they had was to die at sea or from hunger, fear, and intimidation.

Why do I tell you this painful story? Because we will be held accountable and we will be asked about our Muslim brothers tortured in a land and we did not support them!!

If someone asks me what can I do for them?! How can I help them?

I will say: It is very simple. These brothers in humanity and religion… no one knows anything about them. The media does not speak about them and their suffering.

The simplest thing you can offer them is to let others know their story and to feel their suffering. Know that all the problems you have in your life - I swear by Allah - are nothing compared to the calamitiy of the people of Burma.

*They have been abandoned by the Islamic world and the human world. They resemble the people of Al-Ukhdood (Surat Al-Burooj)*

Spread their cause and make the world know it and know what is happening to them. This is a stain on the forehead of all of humanity and on the Islamic world in particular. Pray for them a lot in your prayers, in private, and at all times: that Allah removes his calamity from them and brings His anger upon the tyrant killers, and doing this is the weakest level of faith!

The Messenger of Allaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The believers in their love, mercy and sympathy, towards one another are like one body, if one limb complains, the rest of the body joins it, staying up at night with a fever.”

O oppressed people of Burma, O oppressed Muslims around the world, Allah is sufficient for us and for you, and He is the best trustee.

Oh Allah, we entrust you with our brothers everywhere.

For times of hardship
  1. Prayer / صلاة
  2. Read Quran / قراءة القرآن الكريم
  3. Make dua / الدعاء

حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ

“Hasbunallah wa ni’mal Wakil”

“Allah is sufficient for us and He is the Best Guardian”

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيثُ

“Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum, bi Rahmatika astagheeth”

“O Alive and everlasting One, I beseech You by Your mercy”

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

“La illaha illa Anta Subhanak, inni kuntu min adh-dhalimeen”

“O Allah, there is none worthy of worship besides You. You are Pure, definitely I have oppressed my soul by sinning”

لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ

“La Hawla Wala Quwwata Illah Billah”

“There is no might or power except in Allah”

اللَّهُمَّ رَحْمَتَكَ أَرْجُو فَلَا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ وَأَصْلِحْ شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

“Allahumma rahmataka arju fala takilni ila nafsi tarfata ‘aynin wa aslih li sha'ni kullahu la ilaha ila anta”

“O Allah, I hope for Your mercy, do not leave me for even the duration of an eye blink (duration) and correct my total condition. Besides You there is none worthy of worship”

Always keep your iman strong and remember hardship is not lost. Allah (SWT) does not forget.

Allahu Akbar.

“Allah is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them out into the light.” (Quran 2:257)

“And Allah is most knowing of your enemies; and sufficient is Allah as an ally, and sufficient is Allah as a helper.” (Quran 4:45)

“My protector is Allah who has sent down the book,  and He is an ally to the righteous.” (Quran 7:196)

“Know that Allah is your protector. Excellent is the protector and excellent is the helper.” (Quran 8:40)

“There is no soul but that it has over it a protector.” (Quran 86:4)

Al Muhaymin (The Protector)

Al Waliyy (The Protector)

Al Mani (The preventer of harm).

Allah is well aware of what you are going through, take relief from the fact that Allah will never give you a test greater than you can bear. Obey Allah and He will take care of you

Holy Qur'an, at-Talaq 2-3: Whoever keeps from disobedience to Allah in reverence for Him and piety, He enables a way out for him (of every difficulty), And provides for him from where he does not reckon. Whoever puts his trust in Allah, He is sufficient for him (for all his needs). Allah surely executes what He decrees; assuredly Allah has appointed a measure for everything.

I attempted to thank my Creator, who has blessed me with far more than I can count, but found myself unable to do justice with my words. I attempted to express my gratitude, but became conscious that He will always give me more than I can be thankful for. To thank does not suffice, for words are but limited. All which He bestows upon me will always outnumber the capacity I hold to be grateful. In my attempt to thank Allah, I came to realize the immensity of his Mercy. I give Him less than I receive, yet He is more appreciative that I. Allahu Akbar. To thank him; my actions can only show it, my tongue can only utter it, my heart – only he can understand it. Never have I been so honoured to be a slave of Ar-Rahman.

حَسْبِيَ اللهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ

Allah is sufficient for me, and how fine a trustee (He is).
