Salam-un-Alykum [Peace Be Upon You]
This rally was held to raise awareness about the current conditions in Iraq and Syria and the innocent lives being taken away by the terrorist group ISIS/ISIL. Also, this was a multi-faith rally therefore individuals of different faiths [muslims, christians, hindus, sikhs etc] came out to protest against the atrocities being committed by the terror group ISIS/ISIL.
Furthermore, this rally was to raise awareness that ISIS/ISIL has nothing to do with the Islamic Religion. The word “Islam” itself means peace. They may call themselves Muslims but the Holy Quran clarifies such people cannot be Muslims or even humans for that fact.
Surah 5, Verse 32 States That “Whoever kills an innocent it is as if he has killed all of mankind. And whoever saves a person it as if he has saved all of mankind.”
Let us all pray to Allah (swt) to protect our brothers and sisters in Iraq, Syria and anywhere else there is oppression. And inshallah never will Iraq surrender to its knees. It is the land of Hussain (a). It is where the air cries Ya Ali (a)
I apologize for the beginning being cut off, background noise & not the best camera quality.
