Sheikh Saleh bin Abdullah bin Hamid, one of the imams of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, choked on his words during the Friday sermon at the Grand Mosque in Makkah Al-Mukarramah, while praying for the earthquake victims in Syria and Turkey, and tears flowed from his eyes.

The sheikh said in front of thousands of Muslims: “Oh God, lift the hardship, affliction and anguish from our brothers in Syria and Turkey.. Oh God, have mercy on their dead. Oh God, accept them as martyrs, for they died under the demolition.. Oh God, heal their patients and have mercy on their weak.. Oh God, they are hungry, so feed them, naked, clothe them, and the poor, so have mercy on them, O Merciful of the poor.” .

In addition to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, millions of Muslims held absentee prayers on Friday in many Islamic countries for the earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria.

At dawn on February 6, an earthquake of 7.7 degrees struck southern Turkey and northern Syria, followed by another hours later with a magnitude of 7.6 and hundreds of violent aftershocks, which left huge losses of lives and property in both countries.
