Grenfell Tower resident praises Muslim youth for their bravery in helping survivors

A Grenfell Tower resident praises the bravery of Muslim youth returning from the mosque who she saw running into the fire to rescue people, adding that they were the first to warn residents and distribute water to survivors.

The fire which started last night has already killed six people.

Muslim charities, Londoners and the local mosque were very quick to respond with aid and assistance.

Charities such as the National Zakat Foundation, Islamic Relief, Muslim Aid and Suffa Global have been providing water and blankets, as well as assessing the needs on the ground.

Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre have been providing food and shelter since the early hour of this morning.

MAB Youth and Muslimaat London are collecting emergency supplies, the East London Mosque is fundraising, whilst others have been providing water, food and their homes as shelters.

As you’re here…

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
