Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem
Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmathullah wa barakatuhu
Although my close friends on line are aware of my situation, I think it might be worthwhile briefly explaining my current situation to my Brothers and Sisters in Islam (and others) who drop in here to read my blogs from time to time.
Owing to the shameful military coup in Egypt which deposed the legitimate democratically-elected government of President Morsi last year, and the army's declaration that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organisation, so as to eliminate all opposition to the military take-over in 2012, I have been forced to leave my home in Asyut and to seek refuge in my home country of Jordan.
How I left Egypt and what I am doing now is not really within the scope of this blog, so I will just say that I feel safe in Jordan and that I have managed to keep myself busy with a charitable organisation that is doing great work for the refugees from the civil war in Syria.
It is my hope that, now I am settled again, I will be able to make this blog active once more insha'Allah. With my sisters in Islam who seek to dress according to the wishes of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) being persecuted for their beliefs so widely in Europe and elsewhere, there is much to write about and much to campaign for. So I hope that my small voice can be raised in the defence of those sisters as I have tried to do in the past.
May I finally thank all my friends, both brothers and sisters in Islam as well as non-believers, whose duaa and good wishes have helped me get through the last few months. Without your prayers and support things would have been much worse.
So may Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) bless and protect you all and may He reward you for your generosity and friendship. Ameen.
