Somalia is calling by Nayzak Somalia is calling by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum[peace be to you],

Our world is a very strange place. while some children in some places of this world get upset when they don't get their favorite chocolate candy or favorite transformer toys, there are some children who, sadly, don't even get old dry bread to eat and a sip of clean water to drink!
can we really eat our food and enjoy eating it while knowing that there are some people out there who have never tasted such delicious food and that we are partly to blame for their situation? yes, we are all to blame for what's happening in Somalia and other parts of this world where people are starving and dying of hunger.
maybe you are wondering why we are to blame? that's because we sit and do nothing. we watch what's happening there. with our lips, we say we feel sad for them. but after 5 minutes most of us are watching our funny tv shows and laugh forgetting all about the suffering of these people.

Allah[God] provided food and wealth for all people of the world. when some of the people don't get any, it's because others took more than their share.
God is testing us through these poor people. the Children who die of hunger will go to heaven and enjoy a happy life in the hereafter. but we, the ones who enjoy our life to the fullest now forgetting our responsibilities and duties will certainly give account to God for our mistakes. and it won't be a pleasant account.

we should always remember that this life is a life of test. we shouldn't forget that. we shouldn't forget our responsibilities as caretakers of Earth. and we certainly shouldn't forget the day we will meet our creator and give account for all what we do.


Mohammed, The Messenger of God -peace be upon him- said: "God, the Almighty and Exalted, will say on the Day of judgement: 'O Son of Adam, I was ill and you did not visit Me.'
The man will say: 'O Lord, how could I visit You when You are the Lord of the worlds?'
He will say, 'Do you not know that My servant[*] so-and-so was ill and you did not visit him? Do you not know that if you had visited him, you would have found Me with him? O son of Adam, I asked you for food and you did not feed Me?
He will say, 'O Lord, how could I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds?'
He will say, 'Do you not know that My servant so-and-so asked you for food and you did not feed him? Do you not know that if you had fed him, you would have found that with Me. O son of Adam, I asked you for water and you did not give it to Me.'
He will say, 'O Lord, how could I give You water when You are the Lord of the worlds?'
He will say, 'My servant so-and-so asked you for water and you did not give it to him. Do you not know that if you had given him water, you would have found that with Me?'"
* servant : Muslims believe that all creatures of God [including human] are servants of God and God is the Master of the worlds.

The Messenger of God -peace be upon him- also said "Those who are merciful will be given mercy by the Most Merciful. Be merciful to those on the earth and the One above the heavens will have mercy on you."


the Children of Somalia are calling. don't close your ears or pretend you don't hear...


Hearing what's happening in Somalia because of the famine makes the heart ache. may Allah help our brothers and sisters there and bring them ease and have mercy on them.
I know it's a sad subject. but I hope you like this drawing.

Wassalaamu alaikum
