I did this piece as a tribute to @mattar77 , I didn't know him in person but his light reached the world. "In fearful day, in raging night,
With strong hearts full, our souls ignite.
When all seems lost in the War of Light,
Look to the stars, for hope burns bright!" Rest in power, hero.

This is the moment when this little boy named imam looked up at me and asked “why are there so many police here?” At the time I didn’t think anything of it and just smiled and simply replied “that they’re here to keep us safe” i then asked for his name and we began speaking about how his life is going etc. It was only after I left the march I thought to myself even as a child he still felt threatened and at the presence of police, scared of the people that are meant to protect us and keep us safe. What happening in Sudan right now let alone Yemen, Somalia and every other country in distress and need is disgusting, horrific and heartbreaking, the fact that there’s no media coverage alone has shown that we as humanity have failed. Marches like this one should be encouraged to bring light to these tragedies.May Allah help us all. . . . .
I wanted to bring light to what’s happening in Sudan but mainly the fact that, for some reason, when certain things are no longer “trending” in this generation, we seem to forget, disregard and turn a blind eye towards crises as though injustice has stopped occurring. Sudan is still in a horrible condition. People are still dying and getting treated in an inhumane barbaric manner. There is still no internet, hence why we have limited knowledge on the brutal torture occurring as we speak. Don’t stop posting about what’s going on Sudan solely because your friends aren’t posting about it anymore. Don’t stop raising awareness and doing everything you can in your power to help to do. Sudan still needs our help - i’m aware we can’t do as much as we want just through our phone screens but keeping them in our prayers is the least we can do and sharing the situation is a significant factor in ensuring first world countries take action and aid those being raped murdered. Don’t forget about Sudan. Let us ensure we refrain from consigning this situation to oblivion. Things haven’t gotten better just because the “hype” about it is over. Let us ensure we - as a community - refrain from consigning this situation to oblivion. Keep yourself updated and educate yourself as much as you can about what’s going on.
This is my mother Hanadi Elhadi. My mother has been fighting for democracy in Sudan for as long as I can remember. She fought against the genocide in Darfur, she fought against the injustice that was happening to our brothers and sisters of south Sudan, and now she is risking her life and fighting for a newer and better Sudan. On May 13th my mother was peacefully protesting in the capitol of Sudan when she was brutally beaten and humiliated by the RSF. They pushed her on the ground and beat her like an animal. They did not stop until others intervened and told them that is enough. These people do not care if you are man, woman, or child. Their hearts are full of hate and they show no mercy. My mother is fortunate to still be alive and well while over half a million people have lost their lives in the past 30 years due to poor leadership and corrupt government. Now my mother is trapped in the home scared for her life that someone will come in and terrorize her for being so active during the protests.
Her family and like many other families are trapped in the house unable to leave and supply themselves with basic needs such as food and water.
A Kandaka is a title given to the Nubian Queens of ancient Sudan whose gift to their descendants is a legacy of empowered women who fight hard for their country and their rights. Hanadi embodies every element of a Kandaka. I’m so proud of her and everyone that has participated and fought for democracy. I ask that we all spread awareness and that we pray for Sudan. Write to your political leaders and inform them about the crisis that is happening. Stand in solidarity with Sudan and let them know that the world has their support. This is history in the making. This is a REVOLUTION. 🇸🇩 @heidyakidz#iamthesudanrevolution#sudan#sudanrevolts#sudanuprising

Allah [God] says in Quran: “And whoever volunteers good then indeed, Allah is appreciative and Knowing.”- [2:158] “Those who spend their wealth [in Allah ‘s way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly – they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.” – [Quran, 2:274] “Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity and [they who] have loaned Allah a goodly loan – it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.”- [57:18]
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) Said: “Sadaqah wipes out sins like water extinguishes fire.” – [Tirmidhi]
“We should give charity because after our death everything we own will be left here but our good deeds including charity will go with us.”
“Allah is not unfair by making some people rich and others poor, it is Allah’s way of testing the fairness of those He gave more.” .
“When you give someone charity be thankful to them. You may be fixing their Dunya [World], but they are fixing your Akhirah [Hereafter].” 💕

100% of profits from our *Choose Your Hometown Necklace* & *Bracelet* will be donated towards providing medical aid, food, and water to the people of Sudan until they are free. As we hope you all know by now, a government shutdown has had devastating effects on the daily lives of Sudanese people. Bodies are being dumped in the Nile River. Shops are closed and streets are unsafe, making basic necessities - such as food and medicine - very hard to find.
We will be donating the funds to UMR, who is working swiftly to provide medical aid, food, and water to the people of Sudan. We are very transparent and provide receipts of our donations at the beginning of each month. - @umrelief | UMRelief.org/Sudan-Emergency-Relief
