WLIC Statement on Woolwich Attack

WLIC and UKIM along with all other mainstream Muslim organisations, strongly condemns the horrific murder that took place in Woolwich on Wednesday 22nd May. We would like to express our deepest condolences to the family of the victim. There is no justification for such a crime; criminals and murderers do not represent any community or religion. We remain steadfast in opposing all forms of hate and terrorism.
 
We ask all communities to remain united and work together in the face of this atrocious event. The Muslim community should come forward and share the true message and teachings of Islam with our wider British community, a message of peace, harmony, forgiveness, co-operation and justice.

The Prophet (pbuh) said 'Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother's belly for forty days in the form of seed, then he is a clot of blood for a like period, then a morsel of flesh for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows the breath of life into him and who is commanded about four matters: to write down his means of livelihood, his life span, his actions, and whether happy or unhappy. By Allah, other than Whom there is no god, verily one of you behaves like the people of Paradise until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Hell-fire and thus he enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Paradise and thus he enters it.'
