Our German Shaheedah

Three months pregnant. Killed in front of 3-yr old child and husband. Brutally stabbed to death--18 times. Attacker called her "islamist," "terrorist," and another insult related to the headscarf. She had been harassed by the attacker, who even tried to forcibly remove her hijab.

Link 1. Link 2. Link 3.

I don't really know what to blog on the subject. I can't help but cry when I read the articles, when I hear about the suffering of Muslims overseas, the hatred and the xenophobia they have to live with. It seems so much worse than what we deal with here in the States.

I'll repeat the du'a of a sister living in Germany: may Allah give her and her unborn child the place of a martyr in paradise and most of all may He protect her little son.
