COMMENT: The above addresses are taken from the website:

Please see which one seems MOST appropriate. The first three are Islamic charities.

And all you blokes making $$$$ in Amreeka, you know what to do. Let it NOT be said you did nothing for your brethren when they needed you the most.

Do we leave them to their fate? Do we let them stand alone?

All this is indeed heart rending. May we all learn a lesson from such reminders.
We send our heartiest condolences and prayers for everyone effected by this disaster; various relief funds have been setup in the UK at local and national level.

UK chapter members can send their donations into one of them or directly into the President's Relief Fund. They have been generous in the past at such occasions all over the world including Tsunami and the Hurricanes in the U.S. and I'm sure none needs a reminder but we are sending a mass request email to the regional members.

The Queen has sent her condolences and an aircraft with medical help has already left Britain to the effected region besides the financial help.

assalamu alaykum (peace)

In an effort to reach the farthest areas of the recent earthquake in
the northern
areas of Pakistan, we, on behalf of the Al-Mawrid Institute of Islamic
Sciences,
Lahore, Pakistan (www.al-mawrid.org), our parent organization, are
arranging
helicopter shipments to the victims of these areas where members of our
team
will go and personally distribute various goods and items.

Insha allah, helicopter shipments are due leave on Wednesday the 13th
and Saturday
the 16th of this month. A third one will leave around the 20th. You are
earnestly
requested to send as much money as you can arrange so that goods can be
bought
and sent in time to the worst-hit areas. Please do not shy away even if
you can
contribute a very small amount for these pricesless drops of water will
insha
allah develop into an ocean. Now is the time to do all that we can for
the dear
brethren of our dear homeland.

This e-mail was sent to me by 'Nasirul Islam' which I am quoting as it was

quote:


Our brothers & sisters in Islam need help after the recent
Earthquake in South Asia.

You can donate food for free to our brothers & sisters in Islam,
on The Hunger Site at the moment..
http://www.thehungersite.com/

All you need to do is click a button & the ad sponsers pay for
the food..You can click once everyday..

InshaAllah send this message to all the people you know..

Imagine if we spread this around, how much free donation will be
generated for our brothers & sisters in Islam..InshaAllah

It will only take a few seconds to forward this to your friends
& family or post it on some Islamic forum that you attend but
the effect that it will have for these poor people will be great
InshaAllah & the reward you will get from Allah will be great
too InshaAllah.
