Fatwa Alert: Train Bombings in India

Bismallah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim

The Rose Crescent House of Peace unanimously condemns the train bombings in India that killed close to 150 people and wounded several hundred more (regardless of who committed this heinous act). We call on all Muslims and Sufis to pray for peace in the region, to pray for the souls of those killed, the health and healing of those injured, and that the perpetrators be brought to justice. Islam is a religion of peace, and – according to the Qur’an - if warfare should be engaged in, innocent lives, animals, crops and economies must be safeguarded. We call on all nations, peoples, non-governmental organizations and individuals to refrain from violence and protect the innocent.

So mote it be!
