To all ikwaan & akhawaat, an important reminder:

Why it is FARD (Al-'Ayn)to fight/resists/protest against ongoing onslaught, violence, suppression, deprivation of YOUR brothers, sisters and their children:

Assalaam 'Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Nu'man ibn Bashir (R.A.) the Prophet is reported to have said that"The Muslims (the Ummah) are like the limbs of a man, where if the eye hurts the whole body feels pain and if the head hurts, the whole body feels pain and suffering."

Related by Huzaifah (R.A.) the Prophet said "Whoever does not take an interest in the affairs and problems of the Muslims, he is not of them. And whoever's state is such that, each morning and evening, he is not loyal and earnest to Allah, his Apostle, His Book, the Islamic ruler and towards the Muslims, as a whole, he is not of them."

Related by Jabir lbn Abdullah (R.A.) that he said "I had taken a pledge at the hand of Rasulullah S.A.W. to observe Swallah (prayers), to pay Zakaah (charity due) and to be a sincere well-wisher of every Muslim." The Fact that the Prophet S.A.W. took the pledge or promise from the companions, for being a sincere well - wisher of the Muslims together with that of observing Swalaah and Zakaah which are important pillars of Islam - shows the importance attached by him to the matter.

Anas (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah S.A.W. once said "I swear by the Holy Being in whose power my life is, any one of you cannot be a true believer unless he desires for his fellow-brother what he desires for himself."

Abu Hurairah (R.A.) relates that the Prophet (S.A.W.) said "A Believer is a mirror to a fellow-believer and he is his brother, he removes his defect (or deficiency) and guards him from behind. (In cases where he is unaware etc.)."

It is related by Jareer Ibn Abdullah (R.A.) that the Prophet (S.A.W.) said "Those whose hearts are devoid of mercy for others, will not obain the mercy of Allah."
