Re: Earthquake In Pakistan!!!

"Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, Who say, when afflicted with calamity: "To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return":- They are those on whom (Descend) blessings from Allah, and Mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance." (2:155-157)

May Allah (swt) help the survivors of the Quake and give patience to all families who have lost relatives. Such a sad thing to happen during Ramadan. If anyone knows of Masjids or orgs collecting money to send to Pakistan, it would be a good idea to post it up InshaAllah.

Earthquake in Pakistan

Assalaamu Alaykum,

I hope everyone's family/friends are okay after the horrific earthquake in Pakistan/India/Afghanistan. May Allah have mercy upon all of the Muslims in that part of the world, and may this also encourage all of us to be most upright and steadfast upon the deen of Allah, for no one knows when or how their time might come..Subhana Allah, such is the Might and Power of Allah! Insha'Allah let us all remember them and all of the Muslims worldwide in our du'aahs, especially now in Ramadhan when our du'aahs are most accepted!

Wassalaamu Alaykum

Re: Earthquake in Pakistan

Inna illayhi wa inna illayhi rajioon. It's sad to see that when something of this magnitude, is not covered as much as something like Katrina and Rita or something, when far more people died in this. Nasru min Allah wa fathu Kareeb.

this is very heartbreaking to hear. one of the sisters today was telling me how she was on the phone with her brother in Pakistan when it hit. all of a sudden she hear him panic and he was saying the shahada, when the phone got dissconnected. She called back 2 min later, and he said that there was a major earthquake like he's never seen before. Subhanallah.

May Allah make those who died of the shuhada' and grant patients to everyone effected. these are indeed difficult times for the whole Muslim ummah. lets remember to continue making dua for them...

wallahul Musta'an
It is narrated by Bukhari and Muslim "“The martyrs are five: the one who dies of plague, the one who dies of a stomach disease, the one who drowns, the one who is crushed by a falling wall, and the one who is martyred for the sake of Allaah.”
As for killing time, since when is time an enemy that you should strive to kill?! Time is your breath, it is your lifetime and the moments of your life which you could fill with thousands and millions of hasanaat. It is sufficient for you to say Subhaan Allaah wa bi hamdihi (Glory and praise be to Allaah) once, and a palm tree will be planted for you in Paradise, so how many gardens have you failed to plant? How many hasanaat have you lost? (Islam QA)

EarthQuake disaster in Pakistan

Once upon a time, there broke out a fire in a forest. All the animals
and birds living there started running out of the forest to save their
lives. The fire was intense and the flames were spreading all over the
place. Everyone was trying to leave the place as quickly as possible.
Everyone was desperate to get out of the forest safely.

But there was a little bird, a sparrow, who decided to do something
about this fire and help his fellow animals and birds save their lives
and homes. He went to the river and filled his small mouth with few
drops of water. He then started flying towards the fire to put it off.

On his way to towards the fire, an old bird saw him and asked him why
is he going towards the fire when everyone is going away from it. The
brave sparrow replied he wants to put off the fire of the forest so
that his friends could save their lives and go back to their homes.
The old bird then said that the amount of small water he has in his
mouth would not be enough to put off the fire, so there is no use
going towards the forest. On listening to his comments, the brave
sparrow said that I know these few drops would not be enough for the
fire but I also know that at the day of Judgement, when Allah will
make a list of birds who helped His creatures during the devastation
of this fire, my name would be on the top.

Please, donate a little, maybe 5, 10, 20, 100 dollars but please
donate. Donate as much as you can for the Victims of the Earthquake in
Pakistan. InshaALLAH your name would be on the top when Allah will
make a list of people who helped His mankind.
