The Quran is very serious and absolute in its declaration that innocent people and civilians, of any kind, can never be harmed.
Please share this valuable information that could save a child from brain damage or even dead. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) taught his companions never hit the face or head of children or even adults. Many parents are not aware of the serious dangers linked with shaking a baby or young child. Abusive head trauma (AHT) can not only be caused by hitting the child on the head but also by shaking. Today there is a common problem across the world known as Abusive head trauma (AHT) that can be caused by direct blows to the head, dropping or throwing a child, or shaking a child.
As a child, I used to laugh and run around. Joking and kidding each other were the norm, but the teachers of Islam whom I had come to know seemed sombre and didn’t think laughing was a grand idea.
Everything about the religion seemed serious, culling happiness at bay.
Many years later, I know for a fact that when new reverts come to Islam, many of them suddenly feel a paradigm shift in lifestyle that is not always positive. Although they find a lot of peace and serenity in this new religion, there is a persistent drone over how a Muslim should behave, without considering the questions “why”.
There’s the different dress-code, a constant need to be vigilant about their deeds. Some have to distant themselves from family and friends who are un-supportive.

10 Human Rights Organizations in an Urgent Letter to Attorney General: Concerns Regarding Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law in the IDF’s Operations in Gaza
Ten human rights organizations urgently contacted Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein today following the release of reports on the nature of attacks within the Gaza Strip and the high rate of civilian casualties. This information raises concerns about grave violations of international humanitarian law.
The organizations demanded that the Attorney General instruct the government to refrain from violating the laws of war and re-evaluate its aggressive policy and rules of engagement. The organizations seek to clarify whether the Attorney General critically evaluated the legal advice supplied to the Military Advocate General that underpins ‘Operation Protective Edge’, and calls on him to establish an external, independent and effective investigatory mechanism to examine the decision making of the political and operational establishment as required by international law and supported by the rulings of the High Court of Justice.
The joint letter notes that more than 400 people have been killed and thousands injured since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, the vast majority of which are Palestinians. More than 80 of the dead Palestinians are children. According to estimates provided by the United Nations, civilian casualties constitute 70% of the deaths.
It is better to do what matters most now, than to watch all hope slip away over time.
Es mejor hacer lo que más importa ahora, que para ver toda la esperanza se escape durante la hora.
Het is beter om te doen wat het meest telt nu, dan om naar te kijken alle hoop weg te glijden in de tijd.
Il est préférable de faire ce qui importe le plus maintenant, que de regarder tout espoir filer sur l’heure.
Es ist besser, zu tun, was am wichtigsten ist jetzt, als zu beobachten, alle Hoffnung weg gleiten über die Stunde.
Det är bättre att göra det som betyder mest nu, än att titta på allt hopp glida bort över tiden.
Лучше делать то, что самое главное сейчас, чем смотреть всякую надежду ускользнуть с течением времени.
Bu zaman içinde uzak tüm umut kayma izlemek yerine, artık en önemli şey yapmak daha iyidir.
E ‘meglio fare ciò che più conta oggi, oltre a guardare tutti scivolare via la speranza nel tempo.
Hal ini lebih baik untuk melakukan apa yang paling penting sekarang, daripada menonton semua harapan menyelinap pergi dari waktu ke waktu.
