A Hollywood style evil plan by Assad foiled in Lebanon

A suitcase of cash and explosives? A pen with a camera in it? This stuff sounds like a movie but it is sadly very real in Lebanon; awaiting Ramadan’s Laylat al-Qadr; and a fun idea for a box to collect Zakat money.
It’s not that conflict in Syria could spill over across the borders with neighbors.
In truth, it is the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad’s regime that is desperately trying to spread chaos in the region.
The Prophet said, "Whoever stays up (in prayer and remembrance of Allah) on the Night of Qadr, fully believing (in Allah's promise of reward) and hoping to seek reward, he shall be forgiven for his past sins." [Bukhari and Muslim]
Muslims worldwide spend these last nights in devotion, retreating to the mosque to read the Qur'an (Itikaf), reciting special supplications (du’a), and reflecting on the meaning of God's message to them. It is believed to be a time of intense spirituality, when angels surround the believers, the gates of heaven are open, and God's blessings and mercy are abundant.
