Child: Why are you eyes all red and puffy mummy?
Mum: Because I’ve been crying.
Child: Are you sad for the Palestinians again?
Mum: Yes, everytime I see the news and read the blogs I can’t help but cry and beg Allah to stop their suffering. Ya Allah!
Child: My friend says that the important American man that nearly got hit with the shoe is very angry and that is why he is throwing all those bombs in Gazza.
Mum: I don’t really know if that is what is going on or not but I do know that something has to be done. What you can do is make lots and lots of du’a for them and if you’ve got any money give it to them.
Child: I prayed for them this morning and I’m going to give them all my money. I’m sure is going to be non- uniform day on Friday and the money we bring in will be for them.
Child: My friend also said that she thinks the other important man in America is going to stop the bombs.
Mum: What other important American man?
Child: The black man with a muslim name.
Mum: Let’s hope and pray the end to their suffering comes soon no matter how. Allah has the power and to Him we should turn now and always.
