I can't blame thie who are spreading we felt good and compelled to share it as well, and It is very unfortunate that we fell in for this and only did a basic sanity check of simple google search instead of proper verification. but thanks to a concerned brother who pointed it out and we did some digging and it turns out that the news was a fake.
It has gone viral, people sharing and resharing and drooling over their stars presumed generosity. And sad part is that this effort to counter that virality is definitely not going to reach as much.
We stand for Truth, Justice & Freedom and as badly as we'd like the palestinian cause to be heard, there's no amount of fake that is justified.
Especially when we know It is an obligation according to the Quran (49:6) to verify a news before spreading, rumour monging is strictly prohibited in islam.
So, this news apparantly gets resurfaced every year or so, Palestine Chronicle had published it but has also taken it down.
The problem is there are major Muslim channels having reach of millions and are spreading it like wildfire.
So it is our humble attempt to stop this and let whatever people we are able to convey about it.
The websites that are still covering this as a legit news are using shady terms like 'according to reports/sources'. Its a huge amount if it was true there should have been an official record. Which charity got that. Money? There is an image shared by a charity that says 'SYRIAN ORPHANS THAN CR' AND THE TITLE DAYS DONATED TO GHAZA... WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?
After almost a day of digging into it i am now hundred percent that this is a fake news.
No official report, no major new website covering it, no Spanish media covering it, not a single proof and Muslims are drooling over this guy. Why?? Also. If he did donate 1.5 million could actually make some good impact which organisation took the money. Where are they now? Has a penny reached ground.
I don't have enough space to voice all my concerns. Everything is shady about it
When you something too good to be true. It most certainly is. Don't fall for it without verifying.
