Zakat and Sadaqa: The Charity of the Muslimeen

Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Rita

South Asian Earthquake

Hurricane Wilma

Famine in Niger

South Asia Tsunami

and wars all across the Earth

These are just a handful of the causes that you can serve for the sake of Allah ta'ala. Give your duas and prayers for them. Don't underestimate the power of appeal to Allah. There are no veils between Allah and the oppressed. Volunteer for relief efforts if you can. Work with your masjid to donate clothing and to send relief. Whatever you give during this month of Ramadan, whether it's the gift of prayer or monetary wealth, your action will be blessed a thousand times over.

Thanks for the links, akhi. Inshallah more of the Muslims with the money *cough cough Saudi Arabia cough cough Kuwait** will start opening their hearts and pocketbooks as well. But of course, you're right, we should never underestimate what we ourselves can do with allah's blessing.

Salaam 'Alaikum

DA: I recently read a story somewhere (I can't find it now, but I think I did bookmark it) that while the gov'ts of the Gulf States might be stingy, the people of these places have opened their purses and hearts to the tsunami and earthquake victims. The paltry responses of their gov'ts are not representative of the people themselves. The same article also mentioned how our own gov't's financial response to these two disasters was pretty thin, while the American people themselves have given very generously.
