Nz Terrorism

There has been a terrorist attack in #ChristChurch, New Zealand. The attack was perpetrated on two separate Mosques while Muslims were peacefully making Friday prayers (ṣalāt al-jumu‘ah).

Al-Jumu‘ah 62:9 – O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu’ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.

Arabic: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا نُودِيَ لِلصَّلَاةِ مِن يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ فَاسْعَوْا إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَذَرُوا الْبَيْعَ ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

The latest reports are forty-nine have been murdered and at least twenty were injured. It was originally reported only 29 were murdered. However, many since have succumb to injuries which were inflicted.

As a result of said terrorist attack the muslim community world–wide is now in mourning and many are still tragically grieving so heartfelt condolences go out to them and even more importantly the victims.
