We have heard too many words about the war in Palestine. We have said too much too. But we have seen too little action about it.

To say the phrase "our brothers and sisters in Palestine" is easy. To reason why we should boycott McDonalds and Coca Cola is also easy. To say that you're sympathetic about what the Palestinians have got to go through is another easy thing to do.

But to believe in what we say is very challenging. Hence, not many have managed to realize whatever they have said about Palestine. Not many have been able to refrain themselves from buying the McDonalds' ChocoTop Sundae or Vanilla Coke when they are alone. Not many have included the Palestinians in their prayers.

We must remember, on the Day of Judgment, the words of our tongues will be discounted. Only our deeds and actions that will do the talking in front of Allah S.W.T..

This day We seal up their mouths, and their hands speak out to Us and their feet bear witness as to what they used to earn." (Yaseen: 65)
