As a Muslim-American, I feel it is our obligation to help those in need and take care of our communities. Places like Oklahoma, because of their recent tornado-related disasters, are in need of immediate service from anyone able to assist.
A basic tenet of Islam and the good example of Prophet Muhammad is service to humanity. Following this call, Muslim-Americans are traveling from all across the country to help rebuild Oklahoma’s disaster stricken areas and provide the much needed help for the suffering.
We must not ignore those in need today, because we could be the ones in need tomorrow.
