A Prayer for Peace and Love – 26/11

Posted Nov 26 2010 12:00am
Today it is exactly TWO years after the Terror attack on the city of Mumbai at the Taj Hotel. The city was under this terror attack for a whole day. Innocent lives were taken hostage and then killed by these terrorist.

This date brings back memories of tragedy and an incredible loss of precious innocent human life.

When I started writing this, I wanted to vent at how it could be stopped, why the officials didn’t do anything etc etc… But I just stopped myself and thought, what purpose is that serving now. How will that help all the families who lost their loved ones and how will that bring peace??

I am quite and question the universe instead for such a huge loss of beautiful souls.

I have often been able to understand, or rather come to terms with loss due to a natural calamity. But, a man made calamity, that too of this proportion, I can’t understand. I don’t know why one human being would consider another human beings life so cheap and unimportant. In my opinion a ‘true human{e} being’ cannot and would not do something like that. I just cant fathom it.

Even today when I read or hear of the tragedy and the aftermath of that tragedy, I feel so helpless. Helpless cause I couldn’t do anything but watch and listen. I might have been far away, but I could and still feel the pain of the loss. I keep wondering how it would be had that tragedy not happened? All those people who went there to work, to meet friends, to have a good and peaceful time and never came back. All those who went there to help and were left critical or damaged for life. All those who were left with incomplete families…

“Prayer is not an old woman’s idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.” -Mohandas Gandhilarge_praying_hands

Physically, sometimes its not feasible to help, but in spirit YES we can.
We can Hope and Pray. We can send them our love and think of them in our prayers.
How many times have we prayed for someone other than ourselves or our loved ones?
Learning to pray for anothers plight makes us selfless. It makes the universe aware of the positivity going out and maybe, just maybe, all that positivity will go in the right direction.

Today, as a tribute to those beautiful souls, I would request you to say a prayer for them. A prayer that will reach them and make them feel like they mattered and haven’t been forgotten. A prayer that will show them the immense love that is still felt for them and that their going has left a huge hole in the universe.

I urge you to also pray for their families. May they have the strength to overcome this loss and live their life as was truly intended for them to be lived.

The Almighty Allah Says in the Holy Quran- “Call On Me, I Answer You.”

Lets all Call on the Almighty today for Peace and Love to surround this whole universe. Amen.

Dearest Reader-This article was written by me last year on this very day. My emotions&sentiments are still the same. I still feel a major loss within me, whenever this day comes….I try to not think about it. But, that doesn’t make it go away. May each of you pray for all the beautiful departed souls.
