Actions speak louder than words..

أُوْلَـئِكَ جَزَآؤُهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَجَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا وَنِعْمَ أَجْرُ الْعَامِلِينََ

For such, the reward is Forgiveness from their Lord, and Gardens with rivers flowing underneath (Paradise), wherein they shall abide forever. How excellent is this reward for the doers (who do righteous deeds according to Allah’s Orders).

Surah 3:136

قال الأوزاعي: “إذا أراد الله بقوم شراً فتح عليهم الجدل، ومنعهم العمل

If Allahs wants bad for a people he opens for them the doors of argumentation, and prohibits them from acting.

قال الأوزاعي: “إن المؤمن يقول قليلاً ويعمل كثيراً، وإن المنافق يتكلم كثيراً ويعمل قليلاً

Verily, the believer speaks little but does much. While the Munaafiq speaks much doing very little.

More than 2,000 foreign troops have died in Afghanistan

More than 2,000 foreign troops have died in Afghanistan since the war began in late 2001, according to the independent website.

In all, 2,002 soldiers have been killed since the US-led invasion, including 1,226 Americans and 331 British.

In contrast to these deaths over a span of almost nine years, 1,271 civilians were killed in the first six months of 2010.

Last week, a UN mid-year report showed civilian casualties had risen by 31 per cent this year compared with the same period last year.

So far this year, 434 foreign troops have been killed, compared with a peak of 521 in 2009, reported on Sunday.

June 2010 was the bloodiest month of the war with 102 killed as foreign forces pushed ahead with operations in southern Helmand and Kandahar provinces. Another 88 were killed in July.

There are currently more than 140,000 US and Nato-led troops in Afghanistan aiming to to flush out remnants of Taliban fighters, who went on the offensive after being toppled from government in the 2001 invasion.

Disputes over the Afghan war have already brought down a Dutch government in February and a German president in May.

The losses in Afghanistan are less than half of those in the Iraq war, where at least 4,723 foreign troops have been killed since 2003 – 4,405 of them Americans.

But, with the US government cutting troop numbers in Iraq before the formal end of combat operations on August 31, attention is certain to be focused back on the Afghan conflict.

Civilian casualties

Civilian casualties caused by US and other foreign forces have long been a source of friction between the Afghan government and its Western allies and led to a major falling-out between the two sides last year.

The UN report added that Taliban and armed groups were responsible for 76 per cent of casualties.

Deaths caused by “pro-government forces” fell to 12 per cent of the total from 30 per cent last year, due mainly to a 64 per cent fall in deaths caused by aerial attacks.

He does not take them past any group of angels but they seek forgiveness….

ابن جرير: حدثنا محمد بن إسماعيل الأحمسي، أخبرني جعفر بن عون عن عبد الرحمن بن عبد الله المسعودي عن عبد الله بن المخارق عن أبيه المخارق بن سليم قال: قال لنا عبد الله، هو ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه: إذا حدثناكم بحديث، أتيناكم بتصديق ذلك من كتاب الله تعالى، إن العبد المسلم إذا قال: سبحان الله وبحمده، والحمد لله، ولا إله إلا الله،

والله أكبر، تبارك الله، أخذهن ملك، فجعلهن تحت جناحه، ثم صعد بهن إلى السماء، فلا يمر بهن على جمع من الملائكة إلا واستغفروا لقائلهن، حتى يجيء بهن وجه الله عز وجل، ثم قرأ عبد الله رضي الله عنه: { إِلَيْهِ يَصْعَدُ ٱلْكَلِمُ ٱلطَّيِّبُ وَٱلْعَمَلُ ٱلصَّـٰلِحُ يَرْفَعُهُ }

Abdullah bin Mas`ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said to them, “If we tell you a Hadith, we will bring you proof of it from the Book of Allah. When the Muslim servants says, `Glory and praise be to Allah, there is no god worthy of worship except Allah, Allah is Most Great and blessed be Allah,’ an angel takes these words and puts them under his wing, then he ascends with them to the heaven. He does not take them past any group of angels but they seek forgiveness for the one who said them, until he brings them before Allah, may He be glorified.” Then `Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, recited:

[إِلَيْهِ يَصْعَدُ الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ وَالْعَمَلُ الصَّـلِحُ يَرْفَعُهُ]
