Answer

Wa `Alaykum As-Salam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

First of all, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you have in us. We hope our efforts meet your expectations.

In his response to your question, Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America, states:

“We should pray for our brothers and sisters who are suffering in Palestine. We should also help them by raising funds to provide relief for those who are wounded and for the families of those who are killed. We should write letters of support for the Palestinian cause to our local media, congressmen, the United Nations and various other national/international agencies. We should also support the Islamic organizations in the United States (and others all over the world) who are staging peaceful demonstrations or making petitions.”

Dear questioner, we also recommend you to go through the following relevant Fatwas:
