CAIR Asks Muslims to Pray for, Aid Oklahoma Tornado Victims

We ask Muslims in Oklahoma and throughout the United States to pray for those impacted by this disaster and to do whatever they can to offer material assistance to the survivors," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. "It is at times like this that we must come together as a nation to help those in need."

Awad said the home of CAIR's Oklahoma chapter board chair, Saad Mohammed, was destroyed while his family sought shelter from the tornado in a closet. No one in the family was injured.

"CAIR-Oklahoma will coordinate with disaster officials to help facilitate the Muslim community's role in the recovery effort," said the chapter's executive director Adam Soltani.

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
