In the name of God, the Lord of mercy, the Giver of mercy
The Ithna-asheri Muslim Association of the Northwest (IMAN) unequivocally denounces the heinous acts of terrorism against innocent civilians in Boston, Massachusetts this week. We consider such attacks as an attack on humanity and all human values. The Holy Qur’an reminds us: “whoever kills a person [unjustly]… it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind” (Qur’an 5:32).
