Hejrat Foundation strongly condemns the killing of innocent people all around the world, especially the recent tragedy in San Bernardino. We send our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of these victims, as well as to the community at large.

The message of Islam is one of peace. All true Muslims denounce the killing of innocent people and would never commit such a horrific crime against humanity. Our Holy Book, the Quran, states that “whoever slays a soul… it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men.”

We, at Hejrat Foundation, continue to maintain a close connection with our local law enforcement and we support all efforts to prevent such tragedies in the future.
