US: Detroit Muslims donate $100,000 in post flood relief


By: Jen Hayden


Positive news for Detroit residents on the verge of having their water shut off:

Two Muslim organizations are donating $100,000 to provide assistance to Detroit residents facing water shutoffs or recovering from recent flooding.

The Michigan Muslim Community Council has partnered with Islamic Relief USA, the largest Muslim charity organization in the country, to help thousands of households at risk of having their water shut off. The grant will be divided between the Detroit Water Fund, United Way of Southeastern Michigan and Wayne Metro Community Council.

The organizations are hoping to encourage others to follow suit:

“We are hoping this is going to be contagious,” Anwar Khan, CEO of Islamic Relief USA, said in a statement. “The most important thing we have is not our money, it’s our energy and our enthusiasm, and it’s our people. … Also, it is important to us in our faith to help our neighbors. It is a part of our faith to help our friends.”


Muslims let not videos like this lead us towards arrogance but instead take the good from them, Atheists this is not to attack you as people but instead to highlight the flaws of your world view and to encourage you to turn towards the truth.

Same as prayer also, they are not obliged but it’s good to encourage our children to fast as early as possible though it’s not compulsory.

A sin might be a wekness, but to encourage others to sin is much more damaging to our spirituality.
