Care for your sisters!

Sisters, this is very important. As good Muslims and as women, we should take care of our sisters. We should do what we can to help them, and we can’t stand back not caring when we witness injustice being done!

Kobra Najjar is an Iranian woman facing imminent execution by stoning. Why? She’s been charged with adultery – when what really happened is that her husband forced her into prostitution to support his heroin addiction.

Iranian women’s rights groups report that Ms. Najjar has exhausted all legal remedies available to her domestically.

The only hope for her now is for Iranian leaders to be pressured into releasing her. Please read more about her case at Raquel Evita’s blog, and do sign the online petition made by other caring muslims, to demand the release of this poor, abused sister.

Sisters, forget the hijab. What makes us better Muslims is to care about other human beings, to protect and stand up for the ones that aren’t as lucky as ourselves. Please be a Muslim, and don’t ignore this injustice!

    Done! really i dun get it! in saudi last time a gal was going to get punishment or sumthin coz she murdered sum1 for SELF DEFENSE since the guy was abt to rape her! i mean really why not look into the whole matter and innocence of the accused b4 charging them with anythin? this is wat gives a bad name to islam and non muslims think islam doesnt have justice.

    Habayeb, thank you so much. It’s a shame that IDIOTS are judging in the name of Islam.
