London Bridge Attack

We are deeply saddened and shocked by the attacks carried out in London Bridge on the evening of Saturday 3rd June. Sadly the incident saw several fatalities with many others injured. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and loved ones.
 
We commend the rapid response of the police and emergency services. Without any equivocation, such henious acts of gratuitous violence can never be justified. Terrorism, irrespective of guise, is still terrorism. We stand in solidarity with all communities affected by this hatred.
 
We urge our worshippers and all to remain vigilant and to report any form of hate crime. London is a great city, with a long and proud history of communal harmony. God-willing, we will not allow these attacks to change that.

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.'
