12/13/15- A deadly suicide bomb attack in the northwestern city of Parachinar in Pakistan took the lives of 26 civilians and wounded 70 others. The attack happened in the Eidgah marketplace which is mainly a Shia populated locale. Please pray for the victims and their families who have been targets of deliberate sectarian violence.
This is indeed the perfect response. It’s sad that it takes a tragedy for us to stand together side by side as brothers. This is the way it should be, every day. This should be the norm, not the exception.
The piece was widely circulated by Middle East experts as
authoritative and insightful. Some of the reasons Lynch discusses
include: a desire to distract from Saudi foreign policy failures
elsewhere, a fear that the United States is softening on Iran, and an
effort to appease hard-line Islamist elements at home.
Noticeably absent from Lynch’s list of factors: that Saudi Arabia
hates the Shia due to theological disagreements or seventh-century
That’s not a mistake. No one who seriously studies the Middle East
considers Sunni-Shia sectarianism to be a primarily religious issue.
Rather, it’s a primarily political issue, which has manifested along
lines that just so happen to line up with religious demographics that
were historically much calmer and more peaceful…
Week of Islamic Unity in Iran. Shia and Sunni Scholars praying together on the birthday anniversary of the mercy to mankind, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), in Iran to show the importance of the unity within the Islamic Ummah (society).
We’ve been talking with a Sunni Muslim who lives in Shiite-dominated Iran. He’s a member of one of the two great sects of Islam, which are increasingly seen in conflict. His story suggests just how perilous that conflict could be.
Last month, a crowd in Tehran attacked the embassy of Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia. They were protesting Saudi Arabia’s execution of a Saudi Shiite cleric who had criticized the Saudi government.
The Iranian torching of the Saudi embassy became another episode in the cold war between these two regional powers. It also underlined an awkward reality: Religious faiths don’t obey the borders on a map.
Rayhna Jabbary, a 26 year old Iranian, Muslim girl, who got executed yesterday in Iran, after being detained for 7 years!
The reason she got executed was that because she killed a cop while defending herself from being raped at the age of 17 by him!!
My message to all the Muslims: How long will you keep hiding at homes eventhough you’re completely aware of the oppression happening against all Muslims (especially Sunni’s) in the whole world?
How long will you keep passive? How long will you keep shutting your mouthes up?!!
How many more martyrs must keep falling from us, girls being raped, Masjids being burnt, Youth getting detained for you to speak up?!!
How long and How many more for you to wake up?!!
