He wishes to express his deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones and sends his prayers for fast recovery to everyone who is affected.

He had earlier called on Muslims to pray against Sandy and wrote a prayer, which as disseminated through a website, www.herkul.org. Gulen is now calling on Muslims, by donating $2,000 personally, to help the victims of this devastating storm.

The US has experienced over $40 billion in property damage as a result of the hurricane and has grieved the death of more than a 100 Americans. Many selfless volunteers and disaster relief organizations including FEMA, The Red Cross and the Salvation Army have been aiding victims who are left without electricity, heat, food, and in many cases, shelter.

Helping Hands Relief Foundation, in cooperation with various Turkish American organizations, has deployed volunteers from Turkish American community to help the victims, who are in desperate need, in NJ and NYC.
