Paris Attack - An Attack Against The Whole of Humanity

Paris Attack - An Attack Against The Whole of Humanity Saturday 14 November 2015

Today all of us woke up to the horrific news of the barbaric attacks which have taken place in Paris.

We are deeply saddened by this news and sincerely send our condolences to the families of the deceased. We pray to God to safeguard us all from such shocking terrorist attacks committed by these criminals wherever and whoever they might be.

The perpetrators of this heinous act go against the fundamental teachings of Islam, which encourages the safe guarding of all human life.

Allah says in the Quran: "Whoever saves a life it is as if he has saved the life of the whole humanity." (Quran 5:32) This also means, whoever kills a life it is as if he has killed the whole of humanity.

We, the Islamic Centres in the United Kingdom (signed below) strongly condemn the killing of innocent lives and strongly oppose the usage of Islam as the reason behind such un-Islamic acts no matter where they take place in the whole world.

We are British and we will protect our society from the malicious misuse of Islam to hurt any citizens from our communities.

It is important to remember that these attackers show no bias between Muslim and Non-Muslims alike in their crimes and that we all stand together in solidarity against terrorism.

In this time of difficulty, we urge people to stay calm and not play into the hands of terrorists who seek to divide our Great British Society.
