Muslims stand in solidarity with Paris and the people of France. We are profoundly saddened and shaken by the attacks that have taken place. Many of us used to say terrorists are not Muslims, now we wonder if they are even humans. Period. As Paris reels from today's tragedy, please take following actions right now.
Muslims are raised to love our Prophet more than we love our parents. We are deeply hurt when our Prophet is insulted. Although a few persons have resorted to violence, Alhamdu lillah, no one has insulted Jesus, Moses or the Bible in reaction. The Quran has asked us to honor the symbols that others hold dear.
Please pray for the success of those who struggle for peace, justice and freedom by right means. Please pray that God guides those who are using wrong means in struggle harming humanity, Islam and their neighbors. And may God guide all the oppressors to refrain from oppressing those seeking peace, justice and freedom.
