protest for Egypt tomorw after salat al GOM3Ah (not jum3ah Gom3ah cuz is for masssr!)

A Salamo Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

             This is to inform you that, inshAllah, there will be a gathering of supporters for the people in Egypt, tomorrow Feb 4th after Jumaa Prayer at Masjid Al-Iman.  We hope you are able to come and show your support. The situation is intensifying in Egypt. The government is trying to break the protesters' spirit physically, mentally and emotionally by attacking/killing them and their families, depriving them of food and water, and other means to weaken them. Here in North America and USA, we are continents away and can't do much except make du3a for them, and with your presence at this gathering offer them emotional support, by letting them know that they are not alone and that we are with them every step of the way. May Allah give them strength and patience and rid them of this dictator soon, and return peace and stability to Egypt and its people, ameen.

Wa Salamo Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

On the authority of Abdullah bin Abbas, who said : One day I was behind the prophet (PBUH) and he said to me:

"Young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice] : Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of Allah; if you seek help, seek help of Allah. Know that if the Nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with anything, they would harm you only with something Allah had already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried."

Narrated by Termithi, who said it is true and fine hadith

Being Mindful of Allah means to obey the commands of Allah, as revealed in the Qur’an, and to follow the guidance given by the Prophet (PBUH), the Sunnah.

مظاهرات يوم الغضب فى مصر 25-1-2011 وشجاعة المتظاهرين.

Two Egyptian civilians and a police officer have died after a wave of unusually large anti-government demonstrations swept across the country.
The two civilians died in the eastern city of Suez, according an interior ministry offical. One, who had respiratory problems, died after inhaling tear gas; the other died after being hit with a rock thrown during a protest, the official said.
Meanwhile, in Cairo, a police officer died after being hit in the head with a rock during the capital's biggest protest in Tahrir Square in the city centre, the official said.
Thousands of Egyptians took to the streets on Tuesday in what were reportedly the largest demonstrations in years, and which they explicitly tied to the successful uprising in nearby Tunisia.

What do protesters want?

The creators of the event, which is purely inspired by the Tunisian Jasmine Revolt, has 3 clear demands:

One: Raising the minimum wage to 1,200 EGP and providing subventions to the unemployed.

Two: Ending the State of Emergency which has been caused a long paralysis to the Egyptian civil and political life for more than 3 decades, and releasing all the detainees who are prisoned with no definite charges.

Three: Dissolution of the People’s Assembly of Egypt, the Egyptian Parliament, and changing the constitution to limit the presidential terms to two only.

Revolution in Egypt?

Inspired by the uprising in Tunisia, Egypt is seeing the start of an uprising today

"This is an historic day in Egypt's history because we have started to say 'no'," said Mohammed Saleh, who had joined protesters Tuesday night. "I'll tell my children someday that I was standing here in Tahrir Square."

Gamal Mubarak, Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's son who is widely tipped as his successor, has reportedly fled to London with his family, Arabic website Akhbar al-Arab said on Tuesday.

Statement by Hillary Clinton:
With respect to Egypt, which, as your question implied, like many countries in the region, has been experiencing demonstrations. We know that they’ve occurred not only in Cairo but around the country, and we’re monitoring that very closely. We support the fundamental right of expression and assembly for all people, and we urge that all parties exercise restraint and refrain from violence. But our assessment is that the Egyptian Government is stable and is looking for ways to respond to the legitimate needs and interests of the Egyptian people.

Here is a moment that may be talked about for a while.
Remind you of anything? Action really starts at 1:20

Curfew ordered. Protesters say they won't leave.

A large security force moved in around 1 a.m. Wednesday, arresting people, chasing others into side-streets and filling the square with clouds of tear gas.
