A 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit Washington DC and parts of New York City. As it shakes much of the US capital and was felt striking the Pentagon, White House and Capitol, resulting in immediate evacuations, people all over the world couldn’t help but ponder: “Is this finally the divine punishment!”

It’s not news for Americans that their country is perceived worldwide as the #1 terrorist.

America’s policies, your so-called anti-terrorism act (aka anti-Islamitism!), your prejudice and pompousness redeemed you as the most hated country. But even with America’s horrible public image, we still sympathize and empathize with your predicaments.

It might sound senseless, but despite the unjust incarceration of a Saudi national behind your prisons. Despite the fact that AlTurki is an innocent man whose only crime is being a Muslim who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Despite the fact that we all know for sure that this whole thing is part of an anti-Muslim sentiment from the merciless and discriminating US government. Yet we still pray for the safety of the US citizens. After all, they are our fellow human beings and natural disasters are part of our being on the fragile mother Earth.

Yes America, this is Islam. This is who Muslims really are. We are all about letting go of grudges and bitterness in times of crisis. Islam teachings have engraved in our hearts and souls the concept of forgiveness.

We pray Allah to have mercy on the people of the USA, and to bring healing and hope to those who have been affected by the earthquake.

Amen.

    في ذلك اليوم الذي ضرب فيه الزلزال واشنطن ولم يتضرر أحد!!! كان الآف المسلمين (المسلمين) يقتلون في فلسطين وسوريا وليبيا أمام نظر العالم وسمعه، ولو يبكهم أحد، إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون

    I think you should get your facts about the case straight, I’m sorry to say.

    The poor woman was a victim of sexual molestation. All of this is documented in the case details. Not to mention that he was got lying about the employment and visa status of the servant to his friends, that he did not allow her to have contact with friends back home, and had only paid her $1500 during her entire stay.
    He took away her passport and threatened with the police. This was modern enslavement and false imprisonment on his part.

    I fully support Muslims who are falsely accused. But the evidence against him is too strong. Don’t follow your nafs in this situation, understand all the allegations made against him. He clearly lied and did something wrong.

    For his crime and for embarrassing Muslims with his misconduct he should be in jail for the entire sentence.
