On Sunday, bombs blasted through two Coptic churches in Egypt's Tanta and Alexandria during the Palm Sunday celebrations, leaving at least 49 people dead and hundreds others injured. 

Following the horrific attacks, Egypt's President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi declared a three-month state of emergency. 

After ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks, Muslims decided to combat the hate and bigotry by offering a helping hand to all those affected. 

Muslims launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the families affected

Zainab Chaudry, a Muslim human and civil rights activist, launched a crowdfunding campaign with the aim to raise $20,000 for all those affected by the attacks on Sunday. 

The campaign starts with a line from the Quran that says: 

"Repel evil with that which is better."

$2,000 have been raised at the time of writing. 

"In times of fear, we stand united in the face of terror and oppression," the campaign says.

Muslims are donating blood to help the victims

"This is 33-year-old Muslim Egyptian police officer Emad El-Rakiby. He sacrificed his life this morning when he prevented a suicide-bomber from entering St. Mark’s Church in Alexandria"

Police officer Emad al-Rekaibi prevented a suicide bomber from entering St. Mark's Church in Alexandria. 

The attack killed at least 16 people and wounded 41 others. 

Footage of the moments leading up to the attack has surfaced, showing the suicide bomber approaching the gates to the church before being turned away by the officer. 

He then walks over to a security screening gate and detonates his explosives.  

This Muslim man sent the world a reminder of Prophet Muhammad's teachings

Muslim human rights activist and lawyer Qasim Rashid decided to use the tragic attack as a moment to remind the world what being a true Muslim really means by quoting Prophet Muhammad. 

"In the year 628, Christians wrote to Prophet Muhammad(sa) to ask him what rights they would have under his rule.

Muhammad(sa) wrote this letter in response and he made clear that his goal and purpose was to protect *all* Christians—condemning Muslims who destroy churches or harm Christians...

To call such extremists as Islamic is a flat out lie. My heart and prayers go out to the Coptic Christians of Egypt. May God protect them and may they receive justice for the atrocities committed against them. Amen."

"The terrorists want us divided. We say no."

Egypt's Coptic community is not catching a break

Coptic Christians make up about 10% of Egypt's population - the majority of Egypt's roughly 9 million Christians. 

Throughout history, the Coptic Christian community has long suffered from violence and persecution. 

In December 2016, a 12 kilogram bomb blasted through Cairo's main Coptic house of worship, killing at least 25 people and injuring more than 40 others. 

In 2011, an attack on the Two Saints Church in Alexandria claimed the lives of 23 people. The bombing was then following by clashes between Coptic Christians and Muslims in Cairo.
