Are we aware of what’s happening? As we speak amongst a Muslim Minority, called The Rohingya, in the land of Burma/Myanmar? Where our own brothers and sisters have been suffering for a while now.
In this Khutbah, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi provides some background knowledge as we need to know who they are and what’s going on, as we cannot help unless we understand their situation.He leaves us with some advice on how we can help those suffering.
Who are The Rohingya?
The Rohingya, they are one of the smallest ethnicities, who are predominantly Muslims. They are a descendants of a civilization that used to have a Kingdom over 500 years ago. Some of them converted to Islam while the majority didn’t. Those who converted are called The Rohingya.
Shaykh Ahsan Hanif discusses the ongoing crisis of the Rohingya people in Myanmar or Burma. May Allah free these people from oppression and bring justice to them! Ameen! Please do what you can for them and all those suffering.
Peter Kassig was an American from Indiana who was on vacation in Lebanon. He saw the suffering and death in Syria and felt compelled to help them. Instead of going back home, he went to Syria and with is medical knowledge he volunteered his aid. He converted to Islam and was captured by terrorists known as the self-named group “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh). He was murdered by them. Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi honors his actions in this khutbah.
