Iman Muhanna Update

Brothers and sisters,

I wish there was more I could tell you about the case into Sister Iman Muhanna Mohammed's murder. The Muslim American Society has definitely made it an issue and have raised up to $6,000 of reward money for the capture of the culprit.

What I ask you is to keep making du'a and to write about on your blogs. If you write for a newspaper or website, please make mention of this by writing an article. I hope to write an article for some publications so that her death will not be forgotten.

While we bicker over hijabs, female imams, prayer rooms and partitions, let us not forget our brothers and sisters who are being raped and sexually exploited. Let's not forget Sudan, Chechyna, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and all the refugees in the world.

What is so bothersome about the media blitz of MWU, PMU and RAND, is that these people and their plots are nothing but distractions from Shaytan to keep Muslims distracted in the dunya. It keeps us from addressing the real issues of poverty, abuse and other diseases that have infected the body of this umma. I make du'a that all this negative attention that we are receiving will give us the motivation to stand up for real justice and to release us from the bondage of fear.

We must make sincere tawbah to Allah subhana wa ta'ala because we are sick and Allah ta 'ala is the cure. We brought this evil on ourselves and we must correct this situation.

We can be the problem or the solultion. Choose wisely and rely on Allah ta'ala.
