War affects children in different ways compared to adults. First, children are dependent on the care, empathy, and attention of adults who love them. Their attachments are frequently disrupted in times of war, due to the loss of parents, extreme preoccupation of parents in protecting and finding subsistence for the family and some not available to give them emotional stability.
Our friend's little daughter (from Nigeria) who is 5 asked her father when he was leaving home for Ribât (guarding the Islâmic Frontier for the sake of Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى): ''Abi, are you going to Jannah while we are in the house? Are we also going to Jannah?''
Smile! Alhamdulillaah how clever children are. She as young as 5 years is well aware of the reward that awaits the one who does Ribât. When this was mentioned to me, I wanted to post on the merits of Ribât taken From: Riyâd-us-Sâliheen (Vol.2, The Book of Jihâd, Chapter 234, #1290-1293).
1290. Sahl bin Sa`d (رضي اللّه عنـه) reported: The Messenger of Allaah (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) said, "Observing Ribat (e.g., guarding the Islâmic frontier for the sake of Allaah) for a single day is far better than the world and all that it contains. A place in Jannah as small as the whip of your horse is far better than the world and all that it contains. An endeavour (fighting) in the Cause of Allaah in the evening or in the morning is far better than the world and all that it contains.'' [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]
Commentary: This Hadith highlights the excellence of observing Ribât and fighting in the way of Allaah. It also highlights the insignificance of this world and the great reward in the Hereafter which can be attained through Jihad.

When will the HELP of Allaah come??
The HELP of Allaah is very near!!
Our Lord the Most High says in His Noble Book,
أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُواْ الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْاْ مِن قَبْلِكُم مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاء وَالضَّرَّاء وَزُلْزِلُواْ حَتَّى يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ مَعَهُ مَتَى نَصْرُ اللّهِ أَلا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللّهِ قَرِيبٌ
"... or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, "When (will come) the help of Allâh?" Yes! Certainly, the help of Allâh is near!"
Being a student of knowledge in Darul Hadeeth, we, my family, brothers and sisters residing in Dammaj (the Fortress of Sunnah) are experiencing the atrocities of 9th Harb (War 1435H/2013) by the Kuffār Rāfida who do not want the world to know and see the injustice being done to us ... but it is time for people to know the TRUTH!!
We seek the aid of Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى in all our affairs!
حسبنا الله ونعم الوكيل
'Allaah is sufficient for us, and how fine a trustee (He is).'
Verily, our eyes shed tears & our heart grieve for those who have lost their lives... but we don't say except that which pleases our Rabb (Lord) ...
إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون اللهم أجرنا في مصيبتنا واخلف لنا خيرا منها
"To Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return. O Allaah recompense us for our affliction and replace it for us with something better."
It is 40 days ... 1 month and over a week since scorching, searing hot metal has been raining on Dammaj mercilessly by none other than the Rāfida al Hoothiyoon (who are extreme Shiā declared Kāfir (disbelievers) by many of the Ulema (Scholars). We have been under siege with all road access cut off to Dammaj, whereby no food, medicine and aid can reach us. In fact, we are completely isolated due to the blockade and the Rāfida are bombing us and killing us wrongfully with heavy weapons day and night. They are massacring and butchering not only the innocent students of knowledge but also women, children and the elderly. Students of Dammaj hail from different parts of the world and they are far from equipped to deal with anti aircraft missiles and other heavy duty weaponry used by the Rāfida. How many have lost their lives leaving behind grieving widows and orphans!! How many have got their limbs blown off whilst others await urgent medical aid with severed and exposed organs. Even if the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) want to take our injured (whose numbers are in hundreds), they are curtailed by the Kuffār Rāfida. Being attacked by these long range weapons is a nightmare for us all especially for the kids who are jolted even in their sleep. We seek aid in these tragic times from our Rabb alone with patience and prayer for He the Almighty says in His Noble Book,
لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا
"Allâh burdens not a person beyond his scope."
