Political strife and war in the Middle East has led to hundreds of thousands of lost lives, and the displacement of millions of people from their homelands and homes. This has resulted in a refugee crisis of epic proportions in the Middle East and Europe. Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS prays that may Allah Ta’ala give forbearance to those who have lost family and friends, and give strength and succor to those who have been displaced from their homes and homelands. May Allah Ta’ala reward those who give refuge to them and work towards relieving their extreme plight in any way. And may He give breadth of vision, wisdom and courage to those who are in a position to work towards solutions for peace, so that they may quickly and effectively create a long-term peaceful and humane solution to this crisis.
Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin TUS has participated in the emergency relief fundraising efforts of the following organizations and encourages others to do so also.

CARE is working in Yemen: ongoing violence in Yemen has resulted in 20 million people - 80% of the population - in need of humanitarian assistance. CARE is also working to help Syrian refugees – the Syrian refugee crisis is considered the worst humanitarian crisis since the second World War. Click here to donate.
