The Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador would like to express and share its deep sorrow for the tragic loss of innocent lives at Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center last Sunday evening. We pray to Allah (swt) to grant our deceased brothers the highest ranks in the Heaven and to give fast recovery to those who are wounded.
Our prayers and thoughts are also with the victims' families who are now going through very difficult times. To help them, we will soon set up a fund to which donations can be made through our website.
We are consoled by the fact that this pain is sincerely shared across Canada, and more particularly here in Newfoundland and Labrador. We have received numerous phone calls, e-mails and letters filled with messages of support and solidarity. The entrance of our mosque has poured with flowers and cards expressing sympathy and condolences. We thank all our fellow Newfoundlanders and Labradorians for their outpouring of love and kindness. May peace be upon our province and our country, now and forever.
