No thanks necessary, it is our duty to help if we can! But looks like it is too risky for Iran unfortunately.

Taha Funder is an independent organization based in the UK. Sending them a donation and allowing them to give the money to any of their projects in other countries is not dangerous for you.

Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.

I hope government agencies are able to find more people alive and help the injured recover ASAP. I hope those that have unfortunately passed and those whose bodies have still not be found will return to Almighty Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى  and find peace in the hereafter.

Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.

May Allah help the poor victims of the earthquake.

I have heard from someone that there was a reason for this earthquake and that it was caused by people. I know sounds ridiculous right? But what I have heard is that it happened because when ISIS was still in Iraq, Isis was stealing oil and the Kurds were also stealing oil from underground but as you know if you take water or any other liquid (oil) from a spot underground more water will come to that spot from around the area and if you keep taking more and more then more and more oil will pour in from other places. I'm not sure if you will understand while you read it because I haven't really explained it well I'm sorry. But when oil companies take oil they make a deal with the government and when they take oil they put water in its spot but when the Kurds did it they were just taking oil and leaving it which caused a bunch of gaps underground which then caused an earthquake. I'm not sure if this is true and scientifically makes sense.
