On Tuesday, July 11th, a fire ripped through three mobile homes and totally destroyed them. The fire has left two families displaced and all of their property destroyed. The third mobile home was used by the local community as a gathering place and a way to connect the small group of Cham, an underrepresented ethnic group from South East Asia, in the area. The devastating fire broke out at around 10:30 PM and sent one person to the hospital.
The families were low-income and have lost everything that they own, furthermore, the destruction of the gathering place is a major loss and will have a large impact on the community.
I would like to share with all of you a hadith reported in Sahih Muslim,
"Abu Hurairah reported: the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, Whoever relieves a hardship and creates ease fro someone then Allah will relieve a hardship and create ease for them in this life and the hereafter..."
Please support the families and the community that have been directly and indirectly affected by this devastating fire.
