I blogged earlier about a group of activists helping out the flood victims in Pakistan. If you want to know how dire… how desperate the situation is, do read Fruitful Fusion’s post written by Farhaan Safdar, who is working with the people in Pir Sabak, near Nowshera.

You can also help by donating to the following organisations:


UmmeYusuf, Pakistan’s knitting and crochet genius (ma shaa Allah), is also doing her bit to help. She is donating all proceeds from sales of her patterns till the end of September to the flood relief efforts here in Pakistan. Please support her efforts and buy her patterns – they are lovely ma shaa Allah! Visit her blog to view and buy the patterns. May Allah bless you for your intentions and efforts, UmmeYusuf … ameen.

As we enter the blessed month of Ramadan, let us not tire of supplicating to Allah. O Allah, verily we seek Your help, we believe in You, we put our trust in You and we praise You and we are not ungrateful to You. O Allah, You alone we worship and to You we pray and prostrate, for Your sake we strive. O Allah deliver our brothers and sisters from this calamity and give them patience and courage in this time of distress … ameen.
