New Zealand Memorial Service Announcement

The Islamic Society of Brevard County extends our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the massacre of the mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. We mourn their loss but know in our hearts that they are all Shuhada in their death. May Allah grant them the best place in Jannah.

As this incident shows, terrorism has no favorites. No one group has monopoly over it, and it doesn’t choose its victims selectively. Demonizing particular groups by politicians and pundits, formenting fear of immigrants in general and Muslims in particular, setting them against one another will only tear us apart as a community and country. We need to speak with, not about the other. Together, we will overcome Islamophobia, terrorism, bigotry, and racism in all forms its forms while building more peaceful and harmonious communities. Let us not wait for another tragic incident such as this to make a transformative change in ourselves and our communities.
