Ya Habibi x
So there was a phase at university where Id walk around in a khakhi/military(ish) jacket, with a free Palestine keffiyah. I stopped this when someone joked that I was a brother from the FSA. It made me happy but mostly sad at the same time lol.
Another phase of mine during uni saw me sticking free Palestine posters around campus late in the evenings and leaving around anti Zionist leaflets/papers. This was meant to be done anonymously but everyone knew it was me.
And then other times Id write controversial articles for the uni paper and feared a backlash from this openly Zionist guy and his crew, but instead one-time, he went to twitter and insulted poor @zakia-s for making an innocent pro Palestine comment. Ironically, he was fairly nice to my niqaabi friend who gave him cold stares in lectures.
The funny part in all of this, is that this kind of behaviour was encouraged at my uni because we are meant to leave as critical thinkers and debate in the ‘liberal arts’. SubhanAllah, these stories and memories make me laugh. Though these were really small and petty actions, they made me feel as if I were doing something for my bros and sisters (aside from donating, making duaa etc). I pray Allah swt makes it easy for us to continue defending the honour of our oppressed brothers and sisters and help them in meaningful and affective ways, ameen thumma ameen. Please always keep this ummah in your duaa’s folks, In sha Allah.
