OAKVILLE, Ontario – November 14, 2015 –The Islamic Circle of Canada (ICNA Canada) and the Al-Falah Islamic Center mourns and condemn the horrific loss of life in yesterday’s terrorists attacks in Paris. As Muslims, we reaffirm our belief, as emphasized in the Quran, that whoever kills one life, it is as if they have killed all of humanity, and whoever saves even one life, it is as if they have saved all of humanity (Chapter 5: Verse 32). “This tragedy has touched the world,” said Ameer ICNA Canada, Br. Abdul Wadud. “We call on Muslims in Paris and all across France not to fear and hide, but to step forward and assist in all efforts to help the injured, find the lost, and comfort those suffering from shock and pain.” We are distressed to learn that the politically-motivated extremists claiming responsibility for the attack are justifying their deeds in the name of our faith. Muslim Community condemns all forms of barbarity, murder, and attacks on innocent people in any part of the world and ask authorities to take very strict action against those terrorists. We call for peace, healing, and justice for the victims, as well as an end to violence against the innocent in any and every part of the world. We pray for light, guidance, and hope at this time of great darkness.
