A Caliph, Kayla Meuller, And Farkhunda

Woman is a delicate creature with strong emotions who has been created by the Almighty God to shoulder responsibility for educating society and moving toward perfection. God created woman as symbol of His own beauty and to give solace to her family.

This is a quote of imam Ali, the fourth caliph showing the importance of women in our community.

Whoever kills an innocent life, it is as if he had killed all of humanity. And whoever gives life to one, it is as if he had revived all of humanity

This is a Quranic verse elucidates the sacredness of anyone’s life.

I do not have anything to discuss today, especially about ISIS and their leader. I can not judge whether they are religiously misguided or simply a tool to serve some covetous aims. Being ultra is a choice leading us to nowhere. Everyday I curse politics and ignorance!

Farkhunda was one of us, but their mob justice insisted on torturing and setting her on fire. Farkhunda and Kayla were nothing but a glimpse of poverty and injustice. I do not know who is coming next!
