Just came across this:
In the name of God
May the peace, blessings and mercy of God be upon you
Asalamualykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Many of you have read the news. Many of you have seen the pictures. Many of you are protesting or writing letters. Many of you have blogged about it. Many of you have made dua.
What if we all did something together in unison on one night, Thursday January 1, 2009? What if we all stood in prayer in our homes, offices, schools, dorms or wherever we may be on Thursday night? What if we could get at least one thousand Muslims around the world making the same dua? Think of the probability of one dua being accepted out of a thousand.
Viral marketing spreads like wildfire. So I’m calling this viral dua! Spread this viral dua to everyone!
We will stand on this night to ask Allah (God) to…
- …end all the suffering of all the innocent people around the world.
- …bring justice to all the oppressive rulers and regimes around the world.
- …seek forgiveness for all our sins.
- …to grant us when we die and all those believers who have died, heaven.
Let’s try to get at least 1 person in all the cities where Muslims live to sacrifice one night to ask Allah (swt) to end the suffering in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan and all around the world where there is suffering.
I’ll start off with myself. I intend to stand on the night of Thursday January 1, 2009 in prayer for justice around the world.
Join us and comment your location (see example below). Why? The more locations the more people will join, because they’ll realize they are not alone on this night. You can even advertise a link if you want to. You can even add your link/name and keep your location blank.
So count me in! I just sent out my emails and texts, which gives people here in Syria very little short notice (it’s 11pm Damascus time) but inshAllah they’ll be up for it. What I wouldn’t give to see it though. People across the globe with their hands lifted, praying in unison.
This has me feeling significantly better =)
