Solidarity among Muslims, who are having great trouble due to hurricane in Haiti, 15 thousand km. away from Turkey, sets an example for all Muslims. Inspite of hurricanes and poverty they go through in their country, these Muslims do not accept aids offered to them, saying, “other masjids need more”. They want these aids to be delivered to those who are in need more. Haiti people, who suffer from poverty, bring along what they have in their hands and enthusiastically come together around their iftar tables.

Such superior morality sincere Muslims show, spirit of unity and solidarity of believers are stated in the Qur’an as follows:
It is for the poor who are held back in the Way of Allah, unable to travel in the land. The ignorant consider them rich because of their reticence. You will know them by their mark. They do not ask from people insistently. Whatever good you give away, Allah knows it. (Surat al-Baqara, 273)
those who give in times of both ease and hardship, those who control their rage and pardon other people – Allah loves the good-doers – (Surah Al-Imrán, 134)
