Dogs Eating the Dead in Gaza


Dr Munir Al Bursh from Gaza reported that rabid stray dogs are eating the bodies of the dead in the now-abandoned Al Shifa Hospital. There are no staff to manage the removal of the bodies and due to constant targeting and bombings from the evil Jewish entity, it has become too dangerous to intervene in the abomination that is taking place.


Burial of the dead according to the Janaza rights is an obligation in Islam that rests upon the group of Muslims in the area. If this (Fard Kifaya) is not achieved, then the entire Ummah is sinful.

Abu Hurayrah related that the Prophet said

«أَسْرِعُوا بِالْجِنَازَةِ»

“Hasten the funeral rites.” [Collected in all six major books of hadith. See: Sahih Al-Bukhari vol. 2, p. 225, #401; Sahih Muslim, vol. 2, p. 448, #2059; Sunan Abi Dawud, vol. 2, pp. 897-8, #3153; Sunan Ibn Majah, vol. 2, p. 383, #1477; Mishkat al-Masabih, vol. 1, p.338]

Delaying is haram and the one who is shaheed should be treated differently from the one who is not. Most of the beloved in Gaza can have the right to Shaheed status and yet they suffer the indignity of dogs eating them!

This is a great crime that we as an Ummah must not accept and we should be concerned for our questioning on the Day of Judgement.

Oh Muslim armies, where are you in this time of need?! Why are you not moved to aid your brothers and sister and children of this Ummah?

We are fearful of our Lord, and you must not leave your role of service to defend the Deen of Allah (swt).

Insha’Allah we will have the honour of this Ummah restored with the armies of Islam acting as the Sahaba (ra) did and we rely on the victory of Allah (swt) only.
