Muslim Hands - Helping China and Burma Earthquake Victims





Here's a Muslim organization that appears to be directly helping the people in China and Burma. Muslim Hands has an office in China.

From their website:

"Around the earthquake's epicentre in Wenchuan County and for miles around, homes, schools, offices and mosques have been levelled by the force of the earthquake.

Muslim Hands been working in China for a number of years and has a permanent field office in the Gansu Province.

An experienced team led by Daleel Ulkhairat (MH China) responded quickly to the disaster and have set-up camps in Mianyang City to assist survivors by providing plastic sheeting and shelter, hot cooked food, water and medical assistance.

Teams are also planning to enter two of the most devastated counties of Wenchuan and Beichuan as soon as roads are cleared of rubble and aid is able to flow.

Muslim Hands has launched an urgent appeal to provide further assistance to those affected by the devastating earthquake.

Please donate generously as your support will help save lives insha'Allah."

As muslims we should not only help other muslims but others,period.Who knows,maybe that act of kindness and sadaqa will bring a person to islam.Allahu alim.Its not only about converting someone but also for the deed of helping another person.

Good post :)

I'm so glad I came to your blog and learned about Muslim Hands. I'm new to Islam and I don't know much about zakah. I'm going to think about sponsoring a child.
