It is very important for a Muslim to keep up to date with what’s happening in the Ummah. If your heart doesn’t feel anything when hearing these things about Muslim lands then know your heart may be dead or have deficiencies.
A scholar of the past would pray the entire night when bad things were happening in Muslim countries. The whole night in qiyaam making du’a for them.
Unfortunately we are too busy in our own lives and become desensitised to the affairs of Muslims elsewhere.
