From the Desk of Dr Ossama Bahloul, Resident Scholar / Imam of the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN)

June 12th 2016

I stand in solidarity with the nation and people around the world in the mourning of the loss of lives in Florida. I want to express my unconditional condemnation of the evil act of killing innocent people, a horrendous act without any justification. I convey my sympathy and prayers for all of those who have suffered or were injured and those family members that have lost their loved ones.

If anyone killed an innocent person…it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. Quran (5:32)

ICN STATEMENT ABOUT CHATTANOOGA SHOOTING

The Tennessee Muslim community unequivocally condemns today’s heinous and unjustified attack in Chattanooga, in which four U.S. Marines were murdered and at least three people including one Chattanooga police officer were injured.

 

Reports indicate that the shooter was named Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez and it is believed that he was a naturalized U.S. citizen from Kuwait.

 

We wish to express our deepest condolences to the victims and their families. Terrorists seek to divide our society and we pray that all Americans, will stand together united against

their wanton violence and hatred.

 

“We call on our fellow Tennesseans to focus our attention, effort, and prayers on the families of our murdered serviceman,” said Zulfat Suara, Chairwoman of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC). “Let us honor their memories by doing good deeds, like donating to our local blood banks and exploring ways to support their families after this tragedy.”

 

“Our community’s leadership has been in constant contact with law enforcement and our government officials and we remain committed to working together, especially now in aftermath of this terrible event,” said Paul Galloway Executive Director of The American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC)

In Response to Paris Attack, ICN joins ING and its
Affiliates to Affirm Fundamental Values

The Islamic Center of Nashville joins the Islamic Networks Group (ING) and its Affiliates nationwide and fellow Americans in extending their deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the horrific attack at the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris which took the lives of twelve people. No belief, cause, or grievance justifies such senseless violence. We pray that the perpetrators be found and quickly brought to justice. As Muslims, people of other faiths, and leaders across the world condemn this attack, we affirm the following values and principles: 

    1. We affirm and uphold the sanctity of all human life, the taking of which is among the gravest of all sins.
    2. We affirm the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and speech.
    3. We affirm the right to security in one’s livelihood, profession, and residence.
    4. We believe that God created us with all the diversity of race, religion, language, and belief to get to know one another, not to despise or hate one another.
    5. We believe that Islam is above all a religion of peace and mercy, and that Muslims are obligated to model those traits in their lives and characters and to work for the good of our homeland and society, wherever that might be.
