WNY MUSLIMS CONDEMNS THE INHUMANE ACTS OF TERROR IN PARIS

Buffalo, NY – â€œIf anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allah by committing the major sins) in the land!” (Quran 5:32)


The horrendous acts of terror committed against the people of France on Friday are against the fundamental principles of Islam. WNY Muslims condemns these atrocities and our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this grave violation of humanity. 

Acts of terror are affecting humanity all across the globe. Today, we Muslims, stand together to support those whose lives been tragically altered by such acts. 

We pray for patience and strength for all the families of the victims and their loved ones in these terrible circumstances. This war of horror has taken hundreds of thousands of Muslim lives and non Muslim minorities who have been living in peace with each other for centuries in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan. In this time of tragedy in the nation of France we renew our commitment to stand with all those brave nations that face this existential threat daily and still find the hope to struggle everyday against these barbaric groups and enemies of humanity.
