An Arab prince from the UAE volunteered to be buried alive for 20 minutes for a TV programme. Here is what he had to say about his experience. We will all face death one day, so let us prepare for it. Let us change our ways for the better and rectify our relationships with our families and close ones. Let us repent to Allah and be in such a state that if we were to pass away, we are ready to meet Him.

Palestinians in East Jerusalem live their daily lives under the brutality of Israeli occupation. However, their suffering is ignored by most of the western media. Palestinians in East Jerusalem face expulsion from the city, home demolitions, freedom of movement restrictions, surveillance, and violence from settlers and soldiers. This is in addition to illegal settlement building on their land.
It is through measures such as these – all violations of international law – that Israel is attempting to ethnically cleanse East Jerusalem of its Palestinian population. Israel’s stated goal is to establish and maintain the whole of Jerusalem as its capital.

Attempts to resolve them usually involve learning Prophetic family best practices as well as educating ourselves about gender and child specific communication techniques via seminars, books, and articles.
