To Concord members and friends, a message from Makkah Masjid
Commenting on the OrlandoShooting, Imam Qari Asim MBE, senior Imam of Leeds Makkah Mosque, said:
“The mass murder at a nightclub in Florida was about hatred, pure and simple. Although it has been claimed by ISIS terrorists in the supposed name of religion, this attack runs directly counter to Islam and has been firmly rejected by Muslims in Britain and across the globe.
Coming as it does during the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims in Britain and throughout the world celebrate the true values of Islam that include compassion, peaceful coexistence and charity, the perpetrator’s senseless actions are even more abhorrent.
One of Islam’s core values, stated by the Prophet Muhammad, is that a person “should treat the people the way he would love to be treated” (sahih Muslim). As no human being would wish harm on himself, it is contrary to Islam to harm others, let alone shoot them mercilessly.
As British Muslims, we stand with all those that are disgusted and saddened by the horrific violence committed in Orlando, united in our shared commitment to overcome hatred and bigotry in our society.”
