  • The more evils will open up before them
    The more evils will open up before them
    "The more people increase in comfort and luxury and the more they open up before the people , the more evils will open up before them. It is comfort and luxury that destroys a person. Because if a person was to concern himself with comfort and luxury and providing enjoyment to his body, he will become negligent of providing enjoyment to his heart, and his greatest worry will become providing enjoyment to this body that is doomed to become worms and rotten.

    This is the ordeal, and this is what has harmed people today. You can hardly find anyone except that they say: "What is our palace? What is our car? What is our furniture? What is our food?" Even those who study knowledge, some of them only study in order to gain rank or status to reach the blessings of the Dunya. As if man was...

  • The Delight of Selflessness
    By Abu Muhammad Yusuf Sacrifice is part of nature. The excruciating pain a mother endures patiently at childbirth, the years a teacher spends in educating children, the medical personal who attend to accident scenes in the dead of night, the police who patrol the streets during odd times and extreme weather, the Mujahideen who protect the borders of Islam, the patience of innocent civilians under oppressive regimes are just but a few examples of sacrifices for humanity. “Great achievements and happiness is the born out of sacrifice and not out of selfishness” Sacrifice may vary in degree and form. Sometimes it may be little and at times it may be immense. It could mean surrendering some of our wealth, time or even health for the benefit of others. Sacrifice is an important part in our contribution to society. “Sacrifice...

Gaza Crisis

  • Israel strikes Gaza targets after rocket fire
    Israel hits "terrorism targets" in Gaza and ends truce talks after three rockets land in Israel, violating ceasefire.   More than 2,000 people have been killed in the latest Gaza war [Reuters] Israel has launched air strikes on "terrorism targets" in Gaza and recalled negotiators from Cairo after three rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, as efforts to agree a permanent ceasefire appeared to unravel. The Israeli military said that rockets landed in open areas near the town of Beersheeva. Sources told Al Jazeera that they were fired from nearby Shujayea. Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, ordered his army to attack targets in Gaza, and recalled from Cairo negotiators who were involved in indirect talks with Palestinians on a permanent ceasefire. "In response to Hamas's violation of the truce, the prime minister and defence minister have ordered the IDF...
  • Palestinians and Israel agree Gaza ceasefire
    Israeli officials have agreed to a deal negotiated by Palestinians in Cairo for a new 72-hour ceasefire in Gaza following mediation by Egypt. Egypt said it had received "simultaneous consensus" from both sides for the truce which will begin at 21:00 GMT on Sunday. Israel will send negotiators to the Egyptian capital on Monday if the truce holds. The Egyptian foreign ministry called for the immediate ceasefire "given the necessity to protect innocent blood." It called on both sides to use the lull to "reach a comprehensive and permanent ceasefire." A previous 72-hour ceasefire brokered by Cairo ended on Friday morning, with the conflict resuming between Israel and Hamas, who run the Gaza Strip. Israel withdrew from truce negotiations in Cairo on Friday, soon after the previous ceasefire ended in a firestorm of violence. As of Sunday afternoon, the death toll in Gaza had reached 1,939. According to the UN, about 73 percent of the people killed were civilians. A total of 64...
  • Hamas says no Gaza truce extension agreed
    Israel reportedly offers unconditional ceasefire renewal but Hamas says no deal can be reached unless demands met. A leader of the Palestinian group Hamas has said there will not be a renewal of the Gaza ceasefire that ends on Friday unless Israel meets some of its demands. Ismael Radwan told Al Jazeera: “The truce will not be renewed; it cannot be renewed without real achievements. As we speak, no response has been received to Hamas’s demands, which means there is no breakthrough in this respect.” A 72-hour deal brokered by Egypt took effect on Tuesday, bringing relief to residents in the Gaza Strip after four weeks of fighting and heavy bombardment. Israeli media has reported that Israel was offering to extend the ceasefire for another 72 hours unconditionally. Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston, reporting from Jerusalem, said there were also reports in Egyptian media that the truce could be extended but few details were coming out of Cairo on any progress made with...
