Leading Islamic scholar, Mufti Dr Ismail Menk, is visiting Pakistan to help flood victims after the natural catastrophe wrecked havoc across the country, turning one-third of the country into inland seas.

The famous cleric, who is loved across the world by millions of Muslims, visited flood affected areas of Sindh.
After his visits he noted that the situation is “unimaginable” and urged people to give as much charity and aid as they could to ease people’s suffering.


“Please do whatever you can with any reliable charity or partner for those affected. We will have to assist for the next few YEARS,” he said in a video posted on his Instagram.
