SHAFAQNA – In His Name, the Beneficent, the Merciful
…And whoever leaves his home migrating toward God and His Apostle, and is then overtaken by death, his reward shall certainly fall on God, and God is all-forgiving, all-merciful. (4:100)
We are from Allah and to Him we shall return
The tragedy of Mina which took the lives of hundreds of pilgrims has brought about much grief and sorrow in the heart of the Muslim Ummah and in this regard the Islamic Centre of England extends its heartfelt condolences to the Imam of our time, to the righteous Islamic leadership, and to all the Muslims around the world, particularly the families of those lost in this tragedy. We ask Almighty Allah (swt) to elevate their status and give patience to their families.
The Islamic Centre of England calls upon the rulers of the Muslim countries to investigate the reasons behind this calamity and to form a multi-national operation of Muslim countries to secure the safety and security of the pilgrims in the Holy Lands in the future.
On this sad occasion, the Islamic Centre of England is holding a majlis fatiha ceremony for those pure souls who departed in this tragedy. The ceremony will share some thoughts from eye witnesses who have returned from Hajj in addition to a talk by His Eminence Shaykh Dr. Mohammad Ali Shomali, the Director of the Islamic Centre of England. This ceremony is open to everyone who wishes to share in the grief and sorrow of the occasion with us.
