South Asian Earthquake Update

In the Name of God, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful

Since it first struck, the death toll from Saturday’s devastating earthquake has increased exponentially. It is believed that 30,000+ have already been killed, and that death toll may even rise higher. What’s worse, millions have been left homeless by this disaster, and the winter cold is coming, placing even more people at risk.

The world is responding to this disaster, and many countries have sent aid to Pakistan, including the United States, which sent $50 million. Islamic Relief has also started relief efforts, and they have made an appeal to raise $10 million for the earthquake victims.

Please, let us all do what we can and pitch in to help the victims of the October 8 earthquake. Lord God, please help the victims of the earthquake and blanket them with Your soothing comfort and mercy. In Your Most Holy Name, O Lord. Amen.
