We are waking up on this blessed day of Juma, Friday, to horrific news from New Zealand: At this writing, at least 49 Muslims have been killed and 20 people injured in shootings at two mosques. They include a five-year-old girl.
We ask our community in Saskatoon and Imams of all mosques to raise their hands in prayers for those who were murdered and their families
May Allah keep our community, neighbors of other faith and our houses of worship safe. May He heal us of hate and bigotry. May He guide the misguided. May He bring justice and the best outcome out of this situation. And may He comfort the families and loved ones of those who were killed.
