Imams Online calls on Mosques to use tomorrows Friday sermons to remember and reflect on recent terror attacks that have seen the loss of innocent lives across 3 different continents. We have seen atrocities take place in Tunisia, France, Kuwait and the USA (Charleston) proving that hatred and violence does not have a faith.
We urge Imams to use their platforms this Friday to reiterate the importance of tolerance and justice in Islam and to show that Muslims consistently and unequivocally condemn terrorism in all its forms. During Friday’s sermon, Imams will join worshippers in reflecting on the tragic events of the last few weeks and remember the innocent victims of the attacks. Imams and the Muslim community will also use this opportunity to claim back the holy month of Ramadan that has been marred by ISIL and its murderous acts.
Shaukat Warraich, Editor-in-Chief of Imams Online said,
“Today we remember those who lost their lives and the families whose lives have been destroyed by these senseless acts. Imams and the
Muslim community stand united in the face of this evil”.
“These tragic events will only make us more determined to stand up and defeat extremism. We will not allow these people to be left un-challenged online or offline, intellectually or theologically.”
Commenting on the initiative Qari Asim, Senior Editor of Imams Online said:
“We are remembering those who lost their lives and we stand in solidarity with everyone that has been affected. What took place in Tunisia, Kuwait, France and Charleston was unspeakable horror. As Imams, we will challenge extremists who misinterpret abuse and desecrate the teachings of Islam.”
