رَ اجِ عُونَ َ ِ إِلَيْهَ َ وَ إِنَ َ ِ ِ لِل َ إِنا

In the name of Allah the Most Merciful and Most Compassionate, the Islamic Council of New England asks all Muslims in this region and kindhearted people of all faiths and religions to donate generously to earthquake relief efforts in Turkiye and Syria following the devastating earthquakes in the morning of February 6, 2023.

The images of the destruction in the areas hit by these multiple earthquakes are heartrendering. Row after row of large apartment buildings have collapsed, crushing all who lived inside them. Whole towns have been leveled with thousands of fatalities. Countless families are now homeless. The devastation has left innumerable children as orphans.

We pray Allah accepts all those who have died into His Mercy in Jannah. We pray for Allahs Protection and Strength for all the survivors. May Allah give them shifa and patience to bear this suffering. May Allah give courage and fortitude to those providing immediate assistance on the ground and generous hearts to those sending aid from afar, ya Rabb! Ameen.

It is our duty to help in whatever way we can to alleviate the immediate suffering. Please consider donating generously to a relief organization that already has a presence on the ground and is best equipped to provide immediate relief and assistance.

A few of the organizations who have an actual presence in the area are listed below:

Helping Hand for Relief & Development: https://hhrd.org/Turkiye

Baitulmaal: https://baitumaal.org

Islamic Relief USA: https://irusa.org

Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS): https://www.sams-usa.net/

May Allah accept our efforts and give us the capacity to provide meaningful relief
