Message of the FIA President
We would like to thank all of you who reach out personally or through our official contacts and show their support to our peace-loving, god-fearing community in this hard time.
We are all feeling the weight of the grief, pain, and sorrow that has accumulated over the last 2 days. We are caught between diverse emotions and the need to take significant action as a result of local and global catastrophes. The terrible murder of a family, leaving a 9-year-old kid without a mother, father, grandma, or sister as a result of Islamophobia, is unthinkable, and our communities are still grappling with it.
Let us continue to turn to Allah (SWT) for comfort as we try to navigate these difficult experiences. Let us also look for help and healing in our communities and through various channels of support. May Allah Almighty God grant peace to this humanity on this earth.
We will be holding off a vigil due to the concern of turning a wonderful show of emotions and support into a potential super spread of the COVID-19 virus. However our Masjid and local community will pray (Salat Al gahe'b) for our brothers and sisters who lost their lives in London ON.
We believe that Islam is a growing religion, and knowledge is key to its understanding. Our doors are always open to those in search for the truth and peace. Through works of charity, fasting, and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of our beloved Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and following the 5 pillars of Islam.
Our City - Fredericton
Also called as Atlantic Canada's Riverfront capital, Fredericton is New Brunswick's capital city. It is rich in culture and riverside beauty. As Muslims we are proud to be part of this vibrant community.
