As Salamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh
May the Peace of Allah, His Mercy and Blessings be upon you all
It is with great sadness, that we write these words. The shock, the sorrow, and the aching are beyond overwhelming as we hear about yet another attack perpetrated by a heartless individual. Killing is the same regardless of who the killer is, who the victims are, where and how the killing takes place. The sanctity and preservation of life are fundamental to every religion. What happened in Nice, France was an unbelievable act of terror perpetrated in such a gruesome way. Whoever did it was a criminal, heartless coward and the victims were innocent people. We mourn the death of those innocent men, women and children, and pray alongside the French people, and the families of the victims to God Almighty to bring peace and tranquility to those affected by this cowardly attack, and to the French people who have stood together in the face of such atrocities.
We pray to Allah to guide humanity out of this madness and to save us all from the consequences of such deplorable acts, and to guide our leaders to unite together in goodness and understanding against all kinds of extremism, no matter what name, religion, or ideology it may be associated with.
