It's real. Sometimes I am just not thankful enough for life.

Please raise awareness. Something we need to acknowledge.

Thanks for the reminder.

I could recommend Muslim Aid, Islamic Relief, Christian Aid or Medicins Sans Frontiers (MSF) as reliable bodies of charity and humanitarian organisations. Obviously, I prefer a reputable muslim charity over others for many reasons. I have personally worked for MSF and to the best of my knowledge its a reliable and trustworthy organisation. I would avoid UN based charity if possible.

Can anyone collect fund in an organized way? As far as I understand we can contribute zakat money for this purpose. Can anyone organize it please?

I would recommend Non Muslim Aid or reliable bodies of charity and humanitarian organisations. Obviously, I prefer a non-muslim charity over others for many reasons.To the best of my knowledge a lot of muslim aid are Not trustworthy organisation and your money may end up getting siphoned to the organization that promote violence in the name of religion instead of helping this needy people.

Although a lot of these so called muslim charities (links below) have been investigated shut down but it is better not to take your chances and avoid muslim charities.

Imna - I really have to question your motive for joining BanglaCricket. Posting contrary views are perfectly fine for I too am often a contrarian. However, it does seem to me that your posts are often intended to elicit a reaction that is intended to provoke and elicit argumentation and disruption. There is a word for that.

Do also pay heed to our forum rules which you agreed to abide by when you signed on board. Pay particular attention to the section titled "Do not abuse the forums", especially A.3.1.

Cheers,

May the Lord of all worlds, the Most Gracious and the Most Merciful, end the testing (for them and as well for us).
