HFW BONUS Day 8 & Pearl-Daisy [closed]

Asalaamu Alaykum Everyone,

Today, we have the pleasure of presenting you all with our extra end-of-HFW surprise: Day 8 - For the Love of Filasteen. We've added a Day 8 to encourage our sisters out there to submit creative and original work in support of solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Palestine. Day 8 was inspired by a comment on the Pearl-Daisy Ltd. fanpage, about the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which was set for November 29th. When Amena brought this to our attention, we just knew we had to be a part of it. You can read about why we believe HFW is a perfect place to host a Solidarity with Palestine theme in our previous post.

A Little about Solidarity
The solidarity among sisters, brothers, and the Ummah as a whole is such a strong and vital part of our faith as Muslims. Our Ummah is our family, and our family is spread all over the world, across many different nations and cultures. When members of our Ummah experience good, we share it. When our brothers and sisters experience bad times, we do what we can to aid them. Supporting our brothers and sisters is a necessary act of faith, especially when they are faced with some form of oppression.

Our flyer for Day 8! Feel free to share, but please do not copy!

assalaamualaikm sisters, 
I don't know how many of you are aware of H&M's substantial investments in Israel. Many human rights groups have called for a global boycott because of the unethical nature of these actions. This is something that many people aren't aware of, and it's time to put our $$$ where our mouths are. I'd urge you all to read up on this movement.

A poem about palestine...

We have to save her
She's suffering the torture
We cannot see what will happen next
We cannot tell her future

But she's calling, shouting, praying
We have to answer her call
Save her from all distress
And keep our land safe
Keep our precious land safe
Keep the home that was given by almighty, safe
And she will save us all
