Our Duty…

We all know about Pakistan’s ‘heart-wrenching’ flood, but what to make of it?

For them, it’s a trial from Allah (swt):

{And we will surely test you with some fear, hunger and shortages of property, people and produce. But give good tidings to the steadfast. Those who, when a calamity befalls them say: “We belong to Allah and to Him we return.” Upon these are prayers from their Lord and mercy and these are the rightly-guided ones.}
Al-Baqarah: 155-157

Their duty? To have patience, and to say “Inna lillahi wa Inna Ilaihi raaji`oon” as in the ayah.

Our duty?-

{(O Prophet!) Tell those of My servants who believe that they should establish Prayer and spend out of what We have provided them with, both secretly and openly, before there arrives the Day when there will be no bargaining, nor any mutual befriending.} (14:31)

We spend on them from the wealth Allah has given us. And that’s the only way to attain true righteousness. As Allah says in the Quran:

{You shall not attain righteousness until you spend out of what you love (in the way of Allah). Allah knows whatever you spend.} (3:92)

So take this opportunity to do good and help those in need.
