As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa-raḥmatu llāhi wa-barakātuhu,
To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون
Our deepest condolences go out to our brothers and sisters in Lebanon, and the large Lebanese community mourning over their homeland and loved ones from abroad. The news of the explosion has left many of us in shock and heartbreak and we ask Allah SWT to bring about peace to a region that has not seen much of it over the years and decades.
The LMM gave $15,000 from the Zakat fund for the relief efforts of Human Concern International in Beirut. Islamic Relief Canada did a fundraiser at LMM on Friday, August 7, 2020 for Lebanon after Friday prayers.
We are also collecting funds online on behalf of Human Concern International and Islamic Relief. Your donations will fund an immediate emergency response and wider long-term rehabilitation to help our sisters and brothers in Lebanon. Please click here to donate online.
May Allah protect our families, brothers and sisters in Lebanon and aid them with what they are going through.
