Mariah & Ahmed; Aisha & Hassan
Muslims who believe in service to God and country

Four of our Beliefnet friends are serving with the US military in Iraq during this troubled time. No matter how you feel about the war, I hope you will join us in wishes that they will return soon, safe and secure, to their families and friends.

And hold fast, all together, by the rope which God (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude God's favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth God make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided. [Quran 3:103]

From all your friends at Beliefnet!

May God grant peace to Iraq and all the World; peace in the hearts of all.

Set them free!

May Allah (SWT) Protect the innocent and guide those who are astray.

Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,- (4:95)

Our Lord! Make of us Muslims, bowing to Thy (Will), and our progeny a people Muslim, bowing to Thy (Will);

And show us our places for the celebrations of (due) rites; and turn unto us (in Mercy);

for Thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful Sura 2, Ayat 128,129

O my Lord! Forgive me, my parents, all who enter my house in Faith, and (all) believing men and believing women:

and to the wrong-doers grant Thou no increase but in Perdition Sura 71, Ayat 28

 Safe Keeping
Do not look forward to the changes and the chances of this life in fear; rather
Look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He is your keeper. He has kept you hitherto.

Do you but hold fast to His dear hand, and He will lead you safely through all things;
And when you cannot stand, He will bear you in his arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow.

Our Father will either shield you from suffering, or He will give you strength to bear it.
Sir Francis de Sales

Dear Soldiers:
Please allow these Holy words to be a Light unto your path:
"Then do ye remember Me; I will remember you. Be grateful to Me, and reject not Faith." (Sura 2:152)

"Those who believe say, "Why is not a Sura sent down (for us)?" But when a Sura of basic or categorical meaning is revealed, and fighting is mentioned therein, thou wilt see those in whose hearts is a disease looking at thee with a look of one in swoon at the approach of death. But more fitting for them, Were it to obey and say what is just, and when a matter is resolved on, it were best for them if they were true to Allah. (Sura 47:20-21)

"And those who strive in Our (Cause), We will certainly guide them to Our Paths: for verily Allah is with those who do right." (Sura 29:69)

"...The LORD watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another." Genesis 31:49 (KJV)

5/1/2003 08:22

May your god stand at your back to lend you strength for your difficult work. May the gods bless you and the people you serve with health, prosperity, and peace.

Safely go, safely return, and safe along the way.

Hassan and I thank everyone, and particularly sister miraj for these thoughts. Most of all, we thank Allah for having seen us safely through and for keeping our friends Mariah and Ahmed safe as well.

May the mercy of Allah be granted to all who were lost or hurt, and may his wisdom aid the people of Iraq in building a better life. May the entire world know peace.

May it be Allah's will that our armed services be victorious. May it be Allah's will that the members of our armed services return home safely to their loved ones. May it be Allah's will that we remember our obligations concerning adversaries and non-combatants. May it be Allah's will that our nation neither needs nor requests tribute from the people of other nations. May it be Allah's will that our nation is grateful and of service to Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala, who is the Lord of the worlds, the all knowing, the all powerful, the one who alone is good, who is deserving of all praise, and to whom alone belongs all glory. Ameen.
