Sunday March 17, 2019Our Muslim sisters and brothers in Melbourne Australia laid 49 prayer mats in front of the State Library of Victoria during their vigil
Brothers and Sisters. Friends and Supporters. Peace be upon you.
We are immensely saddened to hear the news of the mass shootings at the New Zealand mosques. Our heartfelt prayers go out to all of the victims, their families and the communities that have been affected by this terrible tragedy. May God grant healing and patience to the families mourning their loved ones.
As a world community, we must reject violence against any group, particularly when it’s based on intolerance and bigotry. We must make sure that humanity triumphs over hate; and that love prevails over fear.
We are grateful for the outpouring of support from so many friends here in our local community. Please join us for our Solidarity Vigil at the Islamic Foundation this coming Sunday (3/17) at 6pm — and PLEASE SHARE this event with friends. Thank you for helping us stay positive. Together, our unity will shine light against the darkness.
