"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi
I think its an interesting question.
I should have added chechyens and the Rohingya to the list but it was getting a little long.
(and now I realise I also missed out the correct answer: "me".)
There are Muslims being massacred in the Central African Republic at the moment. Also in Burma. These seem to not get the same focus as say Palestine.
"For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens 'as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone'" - David Cameron, UK Prime Minister. 13 May 2015.
I think mainy people don't know about Burma/CAR etc. I think it's likely people will feel a lot for "their own" people; those from their own countries. Also the religiously significant countries so palestine, syria etc. And they will generally know more about those people because of the significance. However when you hear about people being murdered and treated in the most inhumane ways, or simply not having enough food or clean water it's impossible to not care - they are human after all, and each human life is priceless.
But do we have it in us to realllllllly care for the people of every country? We probably do, but I just don't know how we'd deal and live with our lives if we actually did that :/ I know it sounds awful, and I obviously don't mean to be, but seriously there's so many horrible things happening in the world that if we concentrated on them all they'd consume our lives...no?
From the actual options, "Pakistani" is joint top. Wahay!!!!
(with one vote. Most people so far have chosen the sensible "other" option.)
What a question lol. I had to come here just to see what in the world this is supposed to mean. I would've said the people of Iraq coming from the "lots of scholars came from Kufa, Baghdad etc" perspective.
I wonder who the "other" are. 7 people chose that option.
other would include "all" or just the "i want to see the results, so i need to vote".
i voted other.
there's a lot of muslims out there, a lot of different personalities that will be touched by different things, inshaaAllah it'll even out and everyone who needs help will get it. I've often thought about this question, and I came up with the idea that if a muslim wants to help out, they should start at home and branch out from there. of course, emergency situations dont apply here.
Palestine touches the heart of everybody because the oppression is so intense, also, because its up in the media. the people who make things go viral control the thoughts of the masses.
Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?
