This is a message to all terrorists that claim to act in the name of Islam. This is a message for all those that who incite fear, pain, suffering and cruelty to others. Those that oppress the weak, bully vulnerable and kill the innocent. This is a message from us, the united Muslims of the world, to tell you that you do not do this in the name of Islam. You do not do this for us, our people, our nations or in the aim to please our Allah. You do this for yourselves.
Islam means peace. Your terror does not bring that.
As Muslims we believe in the onness of God, the teachings of his messengers, of the last day and how we will be judged for by our deeds. We believe in community (working together to create a safe environment for us to live, learn and grow). We believe in education; not only for our children but to also teach our non-Muslim friends on our way of life. We believe in tolerance for one another; to live side by side with people that see the world differently in the hope that through observing our way of life they may join us one day. We believe in kindness; to help our neighbour in their time of need, to look after the less fortunate in our community along with caring for those that struggle to care for themselves.
Unlike you we do not believe in killing innocent people in the plan to bring fear to the worlds nations. Unlike you we do not believe in oppressing women, treating them as lesser people than their male counterparts. Unlike you we do not believe in taking our own lives with the ambition of taking lives of others around us. Unlike you we do not believe in hate.
Remember the holy Quran says, “If anyone slays a person, it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.”
To you terrorist that falsely claim to act in the name of Islam we give you this warning. We banish you from our homes, mosques, places of work and countries. We will help find you when you hide amongst us, report you, call you out and stop you. We will not allow you to preach anger and hate to our people, recruit our young to join you selfish cause and restrict our freedoms.
We the united Muslims against terrorism stand against you and say “not in our name” and we will stop you.
