Responding to the Earthquake Tragedy in Morocco

In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

A powerful earthquake of magnitude 6.8 has struck the beautiful land of Morocco, shaking its very core. According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), this devastating event has left behind a trail of destruction and despair. Our hearts ache as we bring you this news, and we turn to you, our compassionate community, to join hands with us in responding to this urgent humanitarian cri

The Human Toll

Morocco has been gripped by grief as at least 820 lives have been lost and 672 people injured respectively, as reported by Moroccan state media. Families have been torn apart, homes reduced to rubble, and communities left in shock. In the heart of this disaster, we find our calling as Muslims to extend our help and support to those in need.

A Precarious Situation in Marrakesh

The city of Marrakesh, with its rich history and vibrant culture, has been deeply affected. The highest damage has been inflicted upon the old city, where buildings, already fragile and prone to collapse, now stand in ruins. It is a heartbreaking scene, and the people of Marrakesh need our assistance now more than ever.

The Prophet Muhammad () said:

“And they give food, in spite of their love for it, to the needy, the orphan, and the captive, [saying], We feed you seeking Allah’s Countenance only. We wish for no reward, nor thanks from you.

-Qur’an, 76:8-9

Our Islamic Duty

As believers, we are reminded of our sacred duty to help those in need. The teachings of the Holy Qur’an call upon us to show compassion, mercy, and solidarity with our fellow human beings, regardless of their background or creed.
