A PUBLIC MESSAGE | KwaZulu-Natal Floods Disaster
The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa (JUSA) expresses sadness at the extensive devastation of various areas in the KwaZulu-Natal region where scores of people have lost their lives. Many more are missing as homes have been inundated and businesses extensively disrupted by floods that have triggered disastrous damage to infrastructure and property.
Our hearts go to all the families and all those who have suffered loss of loved ones, property and injury due to the adverse weather conditions. We pray to the Almighty to be the Comforter of all those in anguish and difficulty under the prevailing circumstances. We hope for the safe reunion of families whose members are still missing.
We commend all emergencies services that are working hard, around the clock, in order to bring the much-needed relief to all those affected by the inclement wet weather conditions and mud slides.
JUSA is hereby appealing to all South Africans to reach out to residents of the region by channeling contributions towards the agencies that are delivering assistance to those in great need.
In this Blessed Ramadan, we turn to Allah, the Almighty to ease the plight of residents of KwaZulu-Natal in general and eThekwini, in particular. We pray for the safety and well-being of emergency workers and all those who have been cut-off and remain at risk due to destabilised infrastructure.
May Allah send us beneficial rains, and weather conditions that are not destructive. (Aameen)
