Bangladesh £3million appeal: How to Help

Sallam alaykum and hello. Below is a message sent to me by Islamic Relief Worldwide. Please read and pass on. Thank you.

According to the BBC News website:

“Cyclone Sidr has killed more than 3,000 people. Millions are now homeless”.

From God we come and to Him we return.

May God shower mercy on all those affected and give them patience and peace at this testing time. Ameen.


Salam and Hello everyone

We have been receiving many enquiries from you about how you can get involved and help raise funds for the people of Bangladesh.

Islamic Relief has launched a £3 million appeal for Bangladesh and if there is anything you can do to help us achieve this target, it would be fantastic.

o The first thing that you can do is to donate yourself:
o You can contact your local Islamic Relief Office and ask them what you can do
o You can organise your own event with your friends and family and ask your local Islamic Relief fundraising Office to help:
o Use the internet to spread the word and to raise awareness and donations. You can do this by uploading details of the Islamic Relief Appeal to social bookmarking sites such as Digg and StumbleUpon. (go to and click the bookmarking icons)
o If you have a blog, post about the appeal and link to Islamic Relief
o pass the link around to as many websites, blogs, forums etc and friends as you can

These are just some of the things you can do to help the appeal. Of course pray for the people and for the families affected by this cyclone first.

If you have any questions about helping us in this appeal please contact us.

Many thanks for you support

    al-salaamu alaykum,
    i just wanted to say something that has come up before. firstly let me say however, that i don’t believe you can simply say one cause is better than another but….the bangladesh apeal is very important, and yes, if we can we should give, butmay i say, how menny of us gave when the UK had flooding not so long ago? how many of us gave relating to the USA, fires? i don’t know a figure, but i think it is safe to say that during the tsunami pounds flooded in, alhamdulilah! however, their seems to be a thing among muslims in the west that as soon as something goes wrong in asia, or the middle east, people alhamdulilah start reaching for their pockets, but for the USA and UK, where muslims are themselves residing they just think oh well the government will and should sort it out. i also don’t believe it is good enough to say, oh well there wasn’t a way that i new of that i could give regarding the USA, and UK issues, well what stops you or us as muslims from creating that way?
    lets all give as much zakah as we can insha allah, to whom and where we see fit.
    take care
    al-salaamu alaykum.
