WLIC Statement on Woolwich Attack

WLIC and UKIM along with all other mainstream Muslim organisations, strongly condemns the horrific murder that took place in Woolwich on Wednesday 22nd May. We would like to express our deepest condolences to the family of the victim. There is no justification for such a crime; criminals and murderers do not represent any community or religion. We remain steadfast in opposing all forms of hate and terrorism.
 
We ask all communities to remain united and work together in the face of this atrocious event. The Muslim community should come forward and share the true message and teachings of Islam with our wider British community, a message of peace, harmony, forgiveness, co-operation and justice.

The Prophet (pbuh) said 'That which is lawful is plain and that which is unlawful is plain and between the two of them are doubtful matters about which not many people know. Thus he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honor, but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around a sanctuary, all but grazing therein. Truly every king has a sanctuary, and truly Allah's sanctuary is His prohibitions. Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it be whole, all the body is whole and which, if it be diseased, all of it is diseased. Truly it is the heart.' [Related in Bukhari]
