Approximately 6 months ago, it has been discovered that 1/3 of Pakistan has been ruined and washed away in a flood that has lasted for 3 months straight! Pakistan is in desperate need of food and water and shelter for basic survival. Some will say the main reason for this massive over the top flood has occurred is due to climate change.

Due to that massive amounts of continuous rain that’s has lasted for 3 months (90 days). There has been exactly 1,717 people were killed in the first wave, and leaving 10 million children with lack of nutrition and safe spaces.

The fundraising campaign known as Islamic Relief has been collecting donations from all across the world to help the South Asian country reach its substantial economic and social needs. It is a very dark and devastating time for Pakistanis and they are in need of support more than ever. You can help by offering something simple as a hygiene kit to snacks and drinks and medical assistance such as a First Aid kit. You can make a change by going to your local mosque or right from your home.

Tragedy of Mahsa Amini

Protest in Iran and Justice for Mahsa Amini

The sad and heartbreaking truth about the death of the 22 year old, Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini who was murdered by the Iranian police, for wearing a hijab “incorrectly.” This incident became a breaking point for all of the women in Iran who are tired of being abused for their dress code from the Iranian government. Throughout the years, women in Iran have been facing dehumanization for not abiding by the “hijab law” and the “morality” police in the name of Islam. Let me just say first of all that this is not a part of Islamic law, in the religion hijab cannot be forced on a woman whatsoever, and that they choose to wear it or when they want to wear it, and the Islamic republic is not a representation of the religion.

Millions of women gathered around and protested for the rights of Iranian women and for their voices to be heard, and to finally be seen as human, people from all around the world across platform are spreading awareness for the situation in Iran including Muslim women in the west.

It is truly devastating, and disgusting that people still have this mindset in the modern day, not only causing harm to innocent women and girls in their culture but also trying to corrupt the religion of peace by promoting violence. I truly hope women in Iran will have their Justice soon.

Oppression In The Middle East Has Nothing To Do With Islam

There have been lot’s of offensive remarks going around about the religion of Islam by the Western media, but it’s important to note that RELIGION DOESN’T EQUAL CULTURE. It is very important to understand that there have been lot’s of injustice in the Middle East, as I have recently have reported about Women’s rights being taken away in the Arab world, but it doesn’t excuse Islamophobia, and the hatred of Muslims. Islam is the religion of justice and peace, and there are many verses in the Quran and Sunnah (Hadiths) about human rights and equity.

While you could say most Arabs are Muslims, but most Muslims aren’t Arab, in fact the country with the largest Muslim population is Indonesia. I would also like to point out (as a Muslim woman myself), that there have been many issues in the Middle East as well as every part of the world that go completely against Islam and the holy Quran and Sunnah.

Supreme Court Bans Abortion Rights

USA 2022

Roe V. Wade Revoked

The United States of America, a country that is known for carrying weapons under their pillows has recently banned women from getting a safe abortion, and is yet again controlling women’s bodily anatomy. Women all over America and some in Europe has been protesting for their reproductive rights and is soon to take back their control of pregnancy especially for the ones who got pregnant through sexual assault, or has a risk for their pregnancy to be lethal. There is absolutely no reason why a group of cells that go through many stages of development before it becomes alive cannot be terminated safely.

Climate Change: Weather

Recent climate change in 2022 has its impacts, adaption and vulnerability. Since April the global temperature has remained and is remaining at a 0.85*C (1.53*F). It has been just above the standard for the 20th century weather since 2010, as one of the top 5 humid weather environments.

Mitigation and Adaption for Climate Change

This affect of climate change could possibly cause more species to go extinct, and it would be next to impossible for it to be reversible. In the year of 2050 there will be at least a billion people who won’t have homes or other accommodations due to massive storms according to a recent climate report from the UN.

The IPCC (Working Group ll) has been assessing and dealing with the issue as they explain how the weather and climate and been affecting humans and the natural environment. They have been working with researchers on how to adapt and solve the issue. Check out the links below for more information.
