Ya Ikhwani! We are in need of your assistance. Our country has been hit by an act of nature that has left our people with countless deaths, homeless, without water, food, blood and medication.
All of our hospitals have crumbled, we have piles of people in the streets dead. Some people have had to have their limbs removed without aesthetics. Makeshift hospitals are being made with tents but there are not enough doctors or medication for the amount of injured.
The smell of dead bodies has risen in the entire city, the people have become desperate of the situation.
There are still people who are under the rumble and cannot be reached.
My brother Didier Ambroise is missing and we have not been able to find him. My Uncle Roblain Legagneur and my cousin Namu Corvington and his wife died buried under their house.
Brother Ibrahim Abdoul Salam's house was destroyed and his cousin died.
Also brother Abou Bakr's house was crumbled and his sister died.
Many brothers and sisters are unaccounted for. We do not know if they are alive or dead. May Allāh give ease to them in whatever state they may be. Āmīn.
Houses have been destroyed, stores, buildings, it is a complete nightmare. A children hospital was destroyed and thousands of children have died.
All the masjids are still standing and the brothers and sisters are using them as shelters for those in need. The little available is being shared.
Unfortunately all the churches have been destroyed and over 100 priest have died.
There are wails in every corner of the city. It's just a real living nightmare. They've had to do massive burials and have started to do massive cremations and more bodies are being discovered.
We ask you please for your du'as to Allāh, subḥānahu wa ta'āla, to alleviate us from this tragedy. And if you can help us in any way, with food, water, medication or whatever it may be. Please, please, please do so.
May Allāh keep you all under His shade and move your hearts to extend your hands to your brothers and sisters and our people who are in need.
Alhumdulillah, the Islamic Medical Association of North America has sent doctors and more teams of doctors. Muslim, volunteers from the USA.
