Can't concentrate... have been praying and praying since then...
This has never been a political blog ...and it never will be... but I am frustrated and stressed out over what's happening here in Egypt... people getting arrested for no reason... people who believe in their right to express themselves... people who have the dignity to stand up and speak their mind...
Feels different when someone you know very well and is so very dear to you is one of those people... one of the most respectful men I've met in my life... calm, open minded, logical, thoughtful and so full of passion... I won't be able to say enough about him ... I can't think ...no news about him yet... all I can do is pray and wait for a call... I pray he is well... he had bypass surgery less than a year ago... I pray his wife and children are coping and are "saabereen"...


انا لله و انا اليه راجعون، اللهم أجرهم في مصيبتهم و أخلف لهم خيرا منها
يا رب، يا رب، يا رب، يا أرحم الراحمبن، يا مجيب الدعاء، ارفع الظلم عن المظلومين
Update: It's official... he's among those arrested... spent the past 2 hours on the net... searching and reading...found his name in more than one place... I don't want to believe it... I'm still in denial... please pray for him...
Update 2: Just got to know from his wife that he called last night 3:30 am... she says he sounds fine...knowing him .. he would sound fine... a man of such faith.. el7amdulilah... but his medication still hasn't reached him... detained for 15 days... only God knows if those are the first of many 15 days... again ... please pray for him and all those with him...

And then this accident that happened in Alex and people fight and make protests and more violence and once the viloence ended , we hear about sharm blast

I will send good thoughts and prayers for your friend. It's difficult for me to understand what's really going on over there...it seems Egypt is falling into chaos but the world is not really paying much attention. I've signed a petition to free the demonstrators that is to be sent to Egyptian and US officials. Please know that some of us in the western world are aware and do care.

Me, may God be with your friend, and give him the courage and peace to go through all of this. And that he'll be released soon.
May God also be with Egypt and the people who live there. I have family and friends and each time something like this happens I am worried and phone to ask about them. Of course they can't talk on the phone but it's enough to hear their voices.
What is going on with Egypt?

Salaam,
I pray your friend and his family stay well and that he is released soon, insha Allah.
I wish I had something more to say, but I can't imagine what it must be like for you all there. May Allah grant you all Sabr.

I think your prayer says it all. So am repeating it with you:

انا لله و انا اليه راجعون، اللهم أجرهم في مصيبتهم و أخلف لهم خيرا منها
يا رب، يا رب، يا رب، يا أرحم الراحمبن، يا مجيب الدعاء، ارفع الظلم عن المظلومين

Cheer up. Yumhil wala yuhmil.
