(In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Most Kind.)
Over the past few days in the Syrian conflict, the Syrian Government’s forces have become more aggressive in their attacks on the rebel forces in Aleppo. The plight of civilians these attacks have caused has caused global outrage. There are the theists who have asked everybody to #Prayforsyria because that somehow helps. While the criticism of praying for innocent victims is usually “it doesn’t do anything to help the problem” that is not what we’ll discuss here. We are going to discuss the morality behind who it is people are praying to: God.
