“People say all the time, ‘well, I don’t understand how people could have tolerated slavery?’ ‘How could they have made peace with that?’ ‘How could people have gone to a lynching and participated in that?’ ‘That’s so crazy, if I was living at that time I would never have tolerated anything like that.’

And the truth is we are living in this time, and we are tolerating it.”
— Bryan Stevenson, founder and director of the Equal Justice Initiative, in the documentary “The 13th.” 📺
’13th’ documentary shows black people migrating from slavery to prison. Today, “The United States is home to 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of the world’s prisoners. Think about that.” 🇺🇸

Allah has promised that #AlAqsaMosque will be conquered by Jihad, not by peace. The door of Aqsa has been closed without a lock or a key, none will enter it except those who believe in removing the door, not those who search for its key.

#Naseeha: The Muslim must continuously be in the state of obedience of Allah, firm upon His Sharee`ah, steadfast upon His Deen, so that he or she is not of those who worship Allah only during one month or only in one place. Rather, the believer knows that the Lord of Ramadan is also the Lord of other months, and that He is the Lord of all times and places, so he is steadfast upon the Sharee`ah of Allah until he meets Him while He is pleased with him.
Righteous actions are for all times and all places, so strive, O my brother and sister, and beware of laziness. And remember that it is not allowed for us to leave the obligatory actions or delay them, such as the five daily prayers on time, in congregation etc.
And do not fall into forbidden actions, such as forbidden sayings, food and drinks, or by looking at or listening to what is forbidden.
Be steadfast and upright upon the Deen of Allah at all times, for you do not know when you’ll meet the Angel of Death. Beware of him taking you while you are in a state of sin.
يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِينِكَ
 “O Allah, Who turns the hearts, keep our hearts steadfast upon Your Deen.”
— If the fasting in Ramadan has ended, then there remains voluntary fasting, such as fasting six days in Shawwal, on Mondays and Thursdays, the three days in the middle of the month, the days of `Aashoora and `Arafat, and others.
— If standing in prayer at night during Ramadan has ended, then there remains voluntary night prayer throughout the year. 
— If the charity in Ramadan and zakat ul-fitr have ended, then there is the obligatory Zakat, and also there are many other open doors to charity, voluntary actions and jihad.
— Reading of the Qur’an and contemplating it is not only for Ramadan, rather it is for all times.
I ask Allah to accept from us and you our fasting, our prayers and other righteous actions, that our condition after Ramadan be a better one, that the state of our Ummah improves, that we are granted honour and that we truly turn to our Lord…Ameen
