Muharram at Gaza: the amazement.

Initially, this post is intended to be in my native language
but I figured, with English being among the ones widely used on the globe,
here, I'll post my thoughts.

Well truthfully I'm kind of.. shaken up
in posting about this.
After all, the net community today
is mostly filled with
'look at the amount of faaks I give'
kind of people.
I am afraid of being taunted.
Being wrong.
Being put down.

But I care about this.

Admittedly, sentiments doesn't fix things.
But I want to at least bring attention to this matter
and unite us together, and pray for them.
I truly believe, no matter what religion you believe in
or even if you are an atheist
we learn to love one another.
We want the best for each other.

Today is just like any other day
I would go to Tumblr.
It is where I learn of today's
Amazing how fast things can spread thanks to mass media.

Today, posts on Gaza
literally ruled my dashboard
in between pics of 1D, some hipster stuff
and science stuff.
I Googled Gaza and found that Gaza has been bombed,
in defence for the bombing caused by Gaza.

So it's like
the best defence is a great offence.
If that's the case then,
it's no wonder they shot back.
If Israel can shoot a missile 'in defence',
then it's no wonder they shot back
after all that befall on them all these years.
Palestinians have been running here and there
for so many years.
Peace is just a distant dream.

Here's the thing.
Israel stole the land.
Depopulate thousands of people from there.
Tortured the residents. Kids, even.
Not to mention dropping bombs there
which inevitably took many lives.
It took many, many lives
that could have have the power to change Gaza
and later, the world itself.

It is as if all the ideas, chances, the peace
died along with them.

It's like stealing made legal
and the tortures were overlooked
and they didn't pay the price.
Now that's twisted.
Amazing how the constitution can shapeshifted into whatever form
to make this legal.

This schoolgirl could have grown up
to be a teacher,
where she could bring forth the light of knowledge and wisdom
to the incoming generations.
Amazing how a lifelong dream can be destroyed
by a stray bullet in mere seconds.

I don't like what is being done to the people
in Gaza, Syria, Rohingya.
I don't like wars.
I don't like people who disturbs the peace.
I don't like dreams being crushed to pieces.
I don't like hopes being taken away.

All my life, I prayed for everything that I have today
and I got what I prayed for, praise be to Allah.
The power of a prayer is not to be doubted.
Islam, from what I understand, is a religion of optimism,
where every setback is a chance to success and victory.
Islam is a religion that teaches that hard work
will get you a long way,
and one's condition will never change until one actually works for it.
Islam is a religion of peace,
and Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the definition of peace and love itself.
Islam taught me to do something to achieve what I want.

Surah al-Ra'd, 11.

And with this post,
I wish people regardless of faith to look at the people of Gaza;
reflect on what they have been dealing with,
look back at all the privileges we have,
and to be thankful, and pray for their peace.
Peace for Gaza, Syria, Rohingya
everywhere in the world.

I don't know how much change can be done.
But I know.. that I tried.

This is what I have observed and understand.
I truly appreciate your time for reading this.

Naive as it is, I just want peace for the world.
