South Asia's Tragedy
The disaster that has pummeled South Asia is needless to say absolutely horrific and heart-wrenching. I can not even begin to imagine what those people are going through and where they will find the strength and spirit to go on. My heart and prayers goes out to each and every one of the victims. It is our duty to do all that we can do to help them through this time. Every little bit counts; please don't let yourself think, "Well, I can't really do anything for them from across the world." Visit the Humanity First and Red Cross via the links that I have added and also the countless other organizations that are helping the victims. You can find information for helping the victims and there is something for everyone. Even though these types of disasters have people asking the inevitable, "Why did God allow this to happen," we should not let go of our faith. Understandably, the victims are in no position to just sit there and pray...they are just trying to survive. But we can pray for them if nothng else. InshaAllah, God willing, our prayers will reach them and give them the strength to go on.
