Salaam, greetings of peace to all our friends,
As Canadians and as Muslims we are horrified that Muslims in Quebec City have been gunned down while at prayers in their local mosque on Sunday January 29th, 2017.
We are proud Canadians and find it incomprehensible that in our land of peace and tolerance, there are some people who have such hatred in their hearts that they have killed innocent people who have done them no harm.
We are comforted by the messages of sympathy that have been sent to us. Our condolences and prayers for the families who have lost their loved ones in this carnage of killings, and our prayers for those who were wounded.
People have asked us how and where they could donate funds for the families. We suggest donating by cheque or direct deposit according to the instructions provided on the Islamic Cultural Center of Quebec’s (CCIQ) website:
1. Make a cheque out to “Islamic Cultural Center of Quebec” and send it to:
Islamic Cultural Center of Quebec
