Iraq Emergency Appeal

    An already dire situation for many of Iraq's Muslims continues to worsen. Massive fighting for Iraq's second city of Mosul continues to take civilians lives and leave millions more with nothing.

    The fighting for Mosul is some of the heaviest seen since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Thousands of civilians have been killed and massive destruction has taken place. Those fortunate enough to avoid the bombs and bullets have fled the with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

    The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
    'No man forsakes a Muslim when his rights are being violated or his honour is being belittled except that Allah will forsake him at a place in which he would love to have His help.

    And no man helps a Muslim at a time when his honour is being belittled or his rights violated except that Allah will help him at a place in which he loves to have His help.'

    [Sunan Abi Dawud]

    Ummah Welfare Trust is appealing for funds to help families fleeing the fire and smoke of Mosul. Donors can give Zakah, Sadaqah and Lillah, and help those who have found themselves with nothing.

    The charity is providing emergency assistance to widowed and orphaned families living in camps in Erbil and Nineweh. Make a difference and provide one family with an emergency food pack for just £50.

    Alongside their Syrian brethren, Iraq's Muslims are experiencing some of the worst humanitarian conditions in the world. Nevertheless, we can still make a difference. By donating generously for this appeal, we can help alleviate their suffering.
