Campaign Story

The skies have turned orange in Turkey as the mountains are ablaze with fire. Desperate locals rushed to the sea, filling up plastic buckets with water to ward off the flames approaching their homes. Others ran or drove for their lives. By the time the smoke had cleared, stretches of Turkey’s coastal paradise, once covered in pine forests and olive trees, were in ashes. This is being called as the worst fire outbreak in decades. Fishermen watching the fires from the coast called it an apocalypse before their eyes. 
 
At least 770 people have been affected by the fires, with six of them currently receiving treatment in hospitals. As many as 2,352 buildings are seriously damaged or completely destroyed. Twelve wildfires still burn across Turkey with 198 others under control, authorities announced on Friday (6 August). Over 6,500 people and more than 1,800 vehicles have engaged in operations to contain the wildfires.
 
As you read this, firefighters, aided by water bomber planes, helicopters and drones keep fighting flames engulfing Antalya, Muğla, Adana, Aydın, Isparta and Denizli. Flames advanced toward residential areas for days, prompting the evacuation of hundreds of people. In rural neighbourhoods of Antalya, dozens of houses were devastated by the fires, leaving a large number of people homeless. Fires in Antalya and Muğla left at least eight people dead. At least 36,000 people were evacuated to safety in Mugla province alone

The Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement. And whoever helps ease a difficulty in the world, Allah will grant him ease from a difficulty in the world and in the Hereafter. And whoever covers (the faults of) a Muslim, Allah will cover (his faults) for him in the world and the Hereafter. And Allah is engaged in helping the worshipper as long as the worshipper is engaged in helping his brother.” [Tirmidhi]
