London Muslims Stand In Solidarity With Paris
London, Ontario -November 14, 2015
Muslims in London learned of yesterday’s attacks in Paris with deep sorrow and today, we join the world in mourning the horrific loss of life.
As Muslims, we stand in solidarity with the international community in condemning terror, which has no place in our world.
We further stand in solidarity with the people of France, the victims of the attack, their friends and family members.
To them, we offer to them our heartfelt prayers for justice, peace and healing. We also pray for light, guidance, and hope at this time of great darkness.
"As we come to grips with the loss of innocent lives in Paris, this is a time to reflect, to pray and to mourn”, said Imam Jamal Taleb, speaking on behalf of all of London’s Muslim organizations. “We are saddened by these acts of inhumanity."
Allah says in the Holy Quran,
"..whosoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he has saved the life of all mankind.." (5:32)
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Paris and Beirut as well as all the innocent people around the globe.

مَّثَلُ ٱلَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ أَمۡوَٲلَهُمۡ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنۢبَتَتۡ سَبۡعَ سَنَابِلَ فِى كُلِّ سُنۢبُلَةٍ۬ مِّاْئَةُ حَبَّةٍ۬ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يُضَـٰعِفُ لِمَن يَشَآءُۗ وَٱللَّهُ وَٲسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ
