I am deeply devastated by today’s horrendous, terrorist attack that took place today in the al-Rawda Sufi mosque in Bir-Al-Abed, which killed and injured hundreds of Sufi worshippers.
On behalf of all Sufi Canadian Muslims, I, along with all the faculty members and students at Madina Seminary, offer our deepest condolences to the friends and families of the victims of today’s attack. We pray for a complete and rapid recovery for all those injured.
This senseless attack targeted our innocent Sufi brothers and sisters in Islam, who were worshiping at their place of worship – a place where they should have felt safe, secure and at peace.
We must all stand together against these acts of terrorism and counter hate by promoting the values of unconditional love, compassion, diversity, inclusion, and peace.
God almighty protect us all from harm.
