Bloodshed in Istanbul

Once the capital of the Muslim world and the home of the Caliph of Islam, it seems today it is Muslims who are on the gates of Istanbul fighting each other. What has the world come to? In every Muslim nation brother is killing brother, innocent people are killed without thought or regard, where blood is more common than say clean water.

The recent suicide bombing in Istanbul fortunately didn't kill anyone except the bomber, it illustrates the dire situation the Muslim world has found itself in. Though no group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet the damage is done none the less. 

Those who claim to be strong Muslims fighting for this or that would do well to remember the way of the prophet.

None of you [truly] believes until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself.
-Al Bukhari & Muslim

A Muslim is the one from whose hands and tongue other Muslims are safe.

- Tirmidhi

If people really and sincerely tried to follow Islam and the example of the prophet then this kind of violence and hatred could be avoided and people would be able to live in a better and peaceful society something every decent human being hopes for. Peace be upon you all ~ W'salaam
