Remembering 3 Generations of Muslims Murdered
The Canadian virtual news platform news, The London Free Press reported on the remembrance of the Muslim family that was run down by a car driven by an Islamophobic citizen. Yumna Afzaal, 15, her mom and dad, Madiha Salman, 44, and Salman Afzaal, 46, and her grandmother, Talat Afzaal, 74, were all killed June 6, 2021,
In July 2021, staff and summer student staff at the Muslim Resource Centre for Social Support and Integration developed "Not In Our Backyard!” for Muslim women, ages 15 to 25, to come together in a process of collective healing. The purpose of the organisation is to bring support to visible Muslim women who are often the most affected is what has become known as gender based Islamophobia.
The sad loss of three generations of Muslims in Canada is unfortunately an all too typical situation across the globe as Muslims under attack is normalized everywhere.
The hypocrisy of which lives are valued over others is an unacceptable situation that should not be tolerated. In Sharia law life is sacred for all humanity. The Khilafah (Caliphate) sponsors the Dhimmi, non-Muslim citizens of the Islamic State. The hate crimes that exist everywhere from Europe through Palestine are a result of the toxic nationalistic rhetoric and fear mongering programming of governments. They are not accidental or one off incidents. We see them repeated over and over again with catastrophic results that can never be reversed. Organisation's that support the psychologically disturbed or give advice does not actually replace the feelings of insecurity and feat that Muslim women have every day of their lives. Living with the fact that you must watch your back or expect to have your children fight in a social war zone. The Muslims of Canada and the world should take their energies and look towards the comprehensive solution of establishing the Khilafah so that non-Muslims and Muslim have harmony in their needs being met as humans. This will eliminate the idea of competition and kill the animalistic survival instinct to harm each other out of ignorance. The history has shown that there was never a racism forum, or support groups organized to help those oppressed as the Islamic State eliminated the need for this. Justice and peace were the daily expectations and crime was almost zero. We pray for the families living with the grief of losing their loved ones at the hands of violence and hate crimes and we ask Allah (swt) to forgive the sins of the dead martyrs, Ameen.
(يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ ذَكَرٍ وَأُنْثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ)
“All humans are equal in the sight of Allah regardless of their gender, colour, race or nationality. Allah (SWT) says in His Holy Quran: ‘O mankind, indeed We have created you all from a male and a female, and We have made you into nations and tribes that you may know one another. Verily the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is the most God-fearing of you. Surely Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” [Surat Al-Hujurat 49:13]
