AoBM Statement on Terror Attacks

The Association of British Muslims strongly condemns the terrorist attacks in Paris, Beirut and other cities over the past few days. The Muslim faith condemns such acts of violence.

“…if anyone slays a human being – unless it be [in punishment] for murder or for spreading corruption on earth – it shall be as though he had slain all mankind; whereas, if anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he had saved the lives of all mankind.” (Holy Quran 5:32)

Our hearts and prayers go out to the French people, especially families who lost loved ones in these horrendous attacks.

The attacks in Paris were not aimed just at France or Paris, they are attacks against the values and freedoms we cherish and live by in Europe, they were aimed at all of us. In the wake of the sickening unprovoked attacks, we stand united, in solidarity.

In Remembrance…

“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you might come to know one another. Verily, the most honoured of you in the sight of God is the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).”
~ Holy Quran 49:13

To Live Together As Brothers or To Perish Together as Fools?

“Through our scientific and technological genius, we have made of this world a neighborhood and yet we have not had the ethical commitment to make of it a brotherhood. But somehow, and in some way, we have got to do this.

We must all learn to live together as brothers or we will all perish together as fools. We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.

For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the way God’s universe is made; this is the way it is structured.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr, (31 March 1968)
