In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh (Peace, Blessings & Mercy of Allah be upon You).

This statement is being issued on the 13th of December 2016 and supersedes all previous statements on the subject.

Qunut Nazilah for Syria:

This matter was discussed amongst the Ulama and it was suggested that Imams, Scholars and communities should be strongly urged to recite Qunut Nazilah for Muslims of Syria. We urgently and strongly recommend for all Muslims to contact their local Masajid (Mosques) and ensure that this is put into practice.

Unequivocal support for Syrians:

We subscribe to pluralism and peaceful coexistence and acknowledge the freedom and rights of every individual or community or race to believe as they choose to believe without coercion, fear and intimidation. Therefore, we unequivocally condemn the brutal killings of civilians in Syria. The harm to them is unbearable and must stop. We reflect the sentiments of Andrew Mitchell, a Conservative MP who co-chairs the parliamentary Friends of Syria, “The house should urgently discuss not ‘something must be done’, but ‘what in the name of humanity we, the international community, will do to save those who today are in such dreadful jeopardy.”

 

 

As Muslims we should decry the atrocities committed against civilians in Syria. As citizens of Great Britain we are ALL entitled to representation by our MPs. This short article will, Insha’Allah, walk you through the process of engaging with your local MP urging him/her to express your wishes in Parliament.

 

We advise our fellow citizens in United Kingdom to consider the following plan:

 

Spiritual Action Plan for Muslims in Britain:

We are Muslims, therefore our first reaction in any situation should be to reflect upon our actions and to turn to Allah Ta’ala in seeking forgiveness and to beseech Him for his assistance and help. We urge all Muslims in Britain to repent and make sincere Dua to Allah Ta’ala to help the people in Syria.

Encourage your family, friends and community to perform individual prayers and organise Qunut Nazilah in your communities.

Spend your money and give Sadaqah in addition to your Duas to invite the Mercy of Allah Ta’ala.

Change your life for the better and do your best to come closer to Allah Ta’ala by fulfilling His commandments and following the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

This short article will, Insha’Allah, walk you through the process of engaging with political and other organisations, and your MP urging them to express your wishes in Parliament.

Doubtless you are aware about the plight of the Syrian civilians, which has been widely reported in the Press. I am concerned about your actions in condemning this genocide. I believe that Amnesty International should take a stronger stance against this genocide and condemn it unequivocally.

I would also like to know as to how I can be of assistance and help to Amnesty International in raising awareness and ensuring that that the terrible atrocities are halted immediately?

Your help and cooperation in this matter will be greatly appreciated. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.
