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 kinship will be connected to the Throne of the Most Merciful on the Day of Ressurection. It will say: 'This is the place for those who sought refuge in You O Lord from the severing (of family ties)'. So Allah will say to it: 'Will it please you that I connect those who maintained you and that I cut of those who severed you?'. And it will say:'I will be pleased with this, my Lord.'"
