Muslim Family Springfield Fire Tragedy  
It is with great sadness that we inform our community of a tragedy that occurred this Sunday morning to our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters. A humble and devoted father died along with his 2 young kids in a house fire after saving his wife and daughter.
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعون
Another brother is in serious condition with spinal injuries after jumping out of a window with his baby in his arms. The baby and his wife are alive but our brother is hurting and undergoing surgery. There are several other individuals and families also impacted by this tragedy.
Our Imam Wissam, Brother Abdul Qadir (VP of ISWM) and Brother Mohammed Dastigir (President of ISWM) were present on Sunday with the Mayor of Springfield and Town Officials assisting the families and working with local agencies. We will continue to provide support to the families and will announce when the Janazah Prayers will be shortly.
We will be collecting donations after Jumah prayers this Friday for the impacted families. At this time we are not asking for clothes or furniture but may do so in the near future as we assess what the families need. Monetary support is critical at this time for the families. Please do not bring any supplies to the masjid.
Please contact Brother Abdul Qadir with any questions.

You saw in our last email how devastating emergencies can be. After we sent you that email Friday night, Hurricane Harvey slammed the Texas coast. We haven’t seen a storm like this in a decade. It brought tornadoes and floods, 130 mph winds and power outages. Buildings were destroyed and homes washed away, and the worst-people were killed and hurt. Now it’s stalled over Texas, dumping more rain as rivers rise and threaten entire neighborhoods. IRUSA’s disaster response team started work immediately to get staff and volunteers on the ground to help. They’ll be working through Eid with the American Red Cross to shelter our neighbors who have lost everything. This season has been a trying one, and you have been as generous and caring as always. We pray Allah (swt) will reward you for your humanitarianism. And we ask you, please pray and donate what you can to aid our neighbors in need in Texas. Every dua and dollar helps!
PLEASE NOTE: Donations made toward IRUSA’s United States Humanitarian Aid fund in excess of the support requirements for this particular emergency may be used to support other important emergency or long-term work across the country. The fund is available under the Country/Region category, and under the Emergencies section of the donation form.
