The All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) condemns the horrific terrorist attacks against Mosques in Egypt and Nigeria. Approximately, 300 people were killed in Egypt on Fri Nov 24 and many more injured. Approximately, 50 people were killed in Nigeria on Tue Nov 21 and many more injured.
Our profound sympathy and prayers are once again with the victims and their families. ADAMS joins all people of good heart and good conscience in standing against any terrorism and extremism. We continue to pray, to hope, and to work for peace here and in every nation around the world.
The Holy Quran expressly forbids the taking of innocent lives, so anyone claiming to do so in the name of Islam is clearly acting outside of the tenets of our faith.
