In the Name of Allah, the most Gracious the Ever-Compassionate
إنا لله و إنا إلیه راجعون
The news of the brutal and cold-blooded execution of tens of young people in Hejaz by the Saudi regime has left all of the free-spirited Muslims heartbroken. Prophet Muhammad (ṣ) was sent as a prophet to restore mankind’s dignity and demonstrate the Grace and compassion latent in Allah’s religion to all. However, what we are faced with today is the resurrection of the brutal ways of the pre-Islamic pagan Arabs in the name of Islam! This backward attitude, backed by the evil Takfiri ideology that easily rules the lives of the innocent as forfeit on flimsy pretext, has tarnished the sacred and merciful image of Islam.
We live in a time when the corrupt world powers_ together with their so-called international institutions and organizations_ have ostensibly gone beyond protecting the human rights and are now calling for the protection of animal rights, and yet they all are dead silent with regard to this unspeakable act of brutality. It appears that, while all of the free-spirited people of the world have condemned this heinous crime and massive massacre of innocent people, the dirty Saudi dollars have silenced these so-called protectors of human rights!
We believe that Allah the Almighty will not let the taking of such innocent lives, including the lives of the innocent people who have been martyred in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Syrian, and the other Islamic countries, go unpunished.
May Allah gather the sacred souls of these martyrs in heaven together with the sacred souls of the Prophet (ṣ) and his Ahl-al-Bayt (ʻa) and grant the bereaved families patience and a great otherworldly reward.
