Wa alaykum al-salam. The Syrian people are not asking you to take up guns and fight. They do not need more people. In fact, many will tell you that foreign fighters with ISIS and those with Iran and Hezbollah have only created more issues in the country. What they want is for you to use your voice to bring attention to their plight. To not forget them when they are no longer in the news. To find ways to support organizations (that I have mentioned elsewhere) that are bringing relief to the population. To advocate for your countries to take in more of their people that are now homeless and without a country. Their refugees. The foreigners making the greatest impact in Syria are the ones that go there to provide medical care, to report on what is happening, to provide services to the people. You have a responsibility to use the opportunities that you have been given to make positive contributions in the world. If your politicians won’t listen to you then take part in the political process and become the politician. If that is not possible in your country then find other ways to engage civil society. Build up your voice so that it is heard. And finally, do not despair. Have faith. Place your trust in the Most High. Stay woke.
