Fethullah Gulen, the Turkish Islamic Scholar calls all Muslims for helping victims of Katrina Hurricane.

“My thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane Katrina, the United State’s worst hurricane disaster in a century, the magnitude of which is being realized more and more with every passing day. I fully expect that Muslims all around the world will join their friends in America in laboring to help and to heal the material and non-material wounds, and meet the deep needs, of all who have fallen victim to the horror of Katrina. Nothing less should be expected from Muslims whose sense of morality is inspired and guided by the example of the Prophet Muhammad who sought to help even those who had persecuted him in the face of the great famine that struck Makka in AD 629 (during the seventh year of his exile from Makka). My heart-felt sympathies go out to all those who generously work to help their neighbors and strangers alike, regardless of religion, language, race, or gender, and give their all to wipe away the sad memories of this horrible disaster. My prayer is that their service and sacrifice will prove equal to this appalling tragedy and help bring hope out of hopelessness, reminding us all of our common humanity”, says Fethullah Gulen.

The day is humanity day. Let’s wipe the tears and heal the wounds. You can donate money to the special funds set up by Zaman Newspaper.
