Our souls grieve after tragic news of shootings at New Zealand mosques Masjid Al Noor and Linwood Islamic Center. We mourn for the victims and weep with families of the faithful whose worship was ended by heinous violence. As stated in the Holy Qur’an, we will not speak of those slain in the way of God that they are dead. Nay, they are living, but we perceive it not (Surat al-Baqarah 2:154). As leaders around the world issue statements condemning both these barbarous acts and media that breeds a climate of fear mongering and Islamophobia, Abrahamic Alliance International is being flooded with condolence letters from Jewish and Christian communities who have delighted to build new friendships with Muslims while collaborating in compassion. Today’s violence reminds us of the urgency of our work to confront prejudice and counter the hate that has infected many hearts and minds with fatal consequences. AAi calls on all far and wide to show our solidarity with Muslim communities on Friday, March 22 during jumu'ah prayers. Whether you go alone to hold a placard of support, or join others to encircle mosques locking hands in a ring of protection, AAi calls on all to show their solidarity with Muslims at your nearest mosque on Friday, March 22.
