Mosques in Haiti were not damaged in earthquakes and have become shelters for the homeless:

On the morning of Jan. 20 there was a second zemletryasenenie capacity of 6.1 points. “We lay down to rest after Fajr, but were awakened by tremors. Everyone started screaming Shahadah (testimony of faith) and rushed into the street. Praise be to Allah, nothing terrible has happened. Several buildings near the mosque collapsed, but the mosque stood firm on her not even the cracks “- says a spokesperson for the group.

Mosques in Port-au-Prince is turned into shelters as for Muslims and for unbelievers. Those who do not fit inside a living in tent camps around the mosques. Many people are injured and need medical care, food and water. Muslim non-governmental organizations sent aid, and thousands of people come to the mosque to get her, but it is not enough for all, that inflame tensions.

Fantastic. If anyone's seen the shanty towns outside ever the Presidential Palace, you'll know just how much help these people need, and how important shelter is right now.

Assalamo alaykom,

MashaAllah. Reading this below made me cry :$

"Brother Abu Bakr said that the earthquake had killed my sister, she remained under the rubble of their homes. She converted to Islam just a few months before her death."

The latest developments from the field show us the little inroads we can make in getting aid out there. We have set up a distribution centre in Port au Prince and are using on the last upright buildings as a base, Masjid Al Tawheed.

Through this distribution centre, we are sending our aid in pickup trucks to three different distribution centres. They have over 10,000 registered internally displaced people. The number is growing every hour as more people hear there are food and water supplies here.

We have registered ourselves with the UN, but are using our own networks to distribute our aid. The UN are inundated with aid agencies who are trying to get security for their relief efforts and this is seriously hindering other people’s efforts.

We have employed a young man named Abdul Aziz who will work to coordinate the relief distribution in Port ay Prince. We are also setting up an office in the Dominican Republic and have employed Abdul Lateef (see previous blog entries about Abdul Lateef) who will be sending relief items from the Dominican Republic and coordinating the whole emergency between the UK, Dominican Republic and Port au Prince. I have organised a meeting tomorrow with the mosque committee to rent us some space in a neighbouring mosque so we can establish an MH office.

The wheels are turning now but the job ahead of us is great. We are working flat out and need your consistent support because the work being carried out here is, quite literally, saving lives.
Without even having to enter into the worst affected area, in Santo Domingo we are already with people affected by the earthquake. There are people here who sit in searing heat and for the lack of aid supplies, remain hungry and thirsty.

Finding a way into Haiti has been a huge struggle for so many aid agencies in the area. Here in Santo Domingo, we’ve been looking into all the ways we can network with agencies on the ground to travel into Port au Prince and the worst affected area. Fears about security have heightened since raids and lootings have become more common.

It seems here everybody has anecdotes and stories to tell of how the desperation amongst the people has lead to rioting and lawlessness breaking out. We’re going into an area where many people have not received any food or drink since the earthquake struck.

For our aid mission into Port au Prince tomorrow we have gathered our aid convoys together. We’ve been fortunate to find that one of the groups we’ve being working with at the border belong to one of the most important centres of aid delivery; a place which happens to the main mosque in the capital called Al Nur.

Those who have survived the earthquake are using the mosque as a safe haven and hub to serve the entire community affected, from here they come to share food and resources amongst each other and coordinate aid efforts.

With us is Mr Abdul Lateef, a security specialist (one much needed here!) who, with a convoy of 15 people, will be travelling with us and our convoys of food and water supplies. This mosque, Al Nur, is one of four in Port au Prince and caters to the 10,000 strong Muslim population of Haiti. Al Nur is being used as a safe haven for the entire community and many come in to share food and resources amongst one another.

Again, I think the Haitian people are very grateful for the contirbution Muslims are making to help them. I know I would be.

Is there evidence that no mosques have been destroyed in either South Asia or Haiti?
