Lack Of Internet in Muslim Majority CountriesBrothers and sisters, many muslim countries currently lack access to the internet and they are suffering, as an Ummah we all suffer because of this.
The Prophet of Allah (Sullalahu ‘Alaihi wa salam) said “The Muslim Ummah is like one body. If the eye is in pain then the whole body is in pain and if the head is in pain then the whole body is in pain”. Brothers and sisters, many muslim countries currently lack access to the internet and they are suffering, as an Ummah we all suffer because of this. It is our duty to take care of the members of our Ummah, as “giving up on a muslim, is not befitting for a muslim”.
Yemen has a population of about 30 million with 38.2% living in urban areas and 61.8% living in rural areas. In January of 2021 there were 8.06 million internet users in Yemen making it around 26.7% of the population. Internet blackouts in war zones like Yemen contribute to the hiding and concealing of crimes against humanity and heavily impair their already fragile economy. The land cables to Saudi Arabia were cut at the start of Yemen's civil war, and due to the conflict any other undersea cables are yet to be made (stated by TeleYemen).
As of January, 2023 Syria has a population of about 16 million residents and in 2021 it was documented that they had 8.5 million internet users. 8.5 million internet users make up just 46.5% of the population. As another country that is prone to war, terrorism, extremism, and crimes against humanity it is crucial that the Syrian residents have internet access to spread awareness and to receive donations. Especially after the very recent 2023 severe earthquakes that have killed over 50,000 people.
WIth a population of 45 million and an internet access rate of 50%, there are an estimated 28.4 million Iraqi internet users. Iraq has a rich history ranging from the martyrdom of the grandson of the prophet, Hussain ( ع) to the province of the Persian sasanian empire. As Well as the muslim inventors of: Robots, Algebra, Pediatrics, writing, perfume, etc. Iraq quite possibly has the richest and most complex history out of anywhere in the world. Which is why it's crucial that the headquarters of world history has access to the internet.
Palestine has a population of about 5 million and an internet accessibility rate of around 80 percent. Though, to be completely honest, I don't know whether this percentage represents “Israel” , a first world country playing out apartheid, or Palestine, which is no longer on the map. Suppose this percentage was accurate, it would hardly be considered stable. As Palestine is getting smaller by the days. Which is why it is of utmost importance that we get our brothers and sisters in Palestine representation and the internet. To spread the #FreePalestine movement, together as a muslim Ummah, this is OUR responsibility and no one else's. Especially because one of our holy mosques Al-Aqsa, the mosque where all of the prophets of Allah prayed in congregation with RasoolAllah (SA) in front at this mosque. Spread the movement. Free Palestine.
