FIOE calls Islamic centres to care for those affected by the cold spell


FIOE invited Europe's Muslims, and their social and charitable organisations to extend the hand of help and support to those groups affected by the extreme drop in temperature, and ice storms. It also urged mosques and Islamic centres across European countries to take the initiative in opening their doors to receive those affected by the severe cold snap, to find shelter and warmth, while providing care and moral support, as well as food and clothing.

In its urgent call issued following the outbreak of this extreme cold snap sweeping the European continent and claiming that claimed hundreds of victims, the FIOE said they console the families of the victims who died due to the cold and ice, and feel pain and suffering for those who are without shelter, or have no opportunity to warm their homes, asking Allah to relieve their suffering.

The FIOE noted that mosques and Islamic centres are for society as a whole and not Muslims only, and we are confident that Europe's Muslims understand their social responsibilities, and duty of solidarity towards those groups suffering, and needing assistance, in these circumstances as others.

It also added that Europe's Muslims as they remember in these days the birth of the Noble Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, will find in this noble humanitarian stance, the best celebration of this noble occasion, by following the humanitarian commitments emphasised in the Noble Quran and Sunnah of the Messenger Muhammad, peace be upon him, and the Noble Messengers of Allah.
