“I would not be willing to do a funeral for him,” said Imam Talal Eid of the Islamic Institute of Boston, a community services organization that frequently arranges funeral prayers and burials in the region. “This is a person who deliberately killed people. There is no room for him as a Muslim. He already left the fold of Islam by doing that. In the Quran it says those who will kill innocent people, they will dwell in the hellfire.”
Is anyone else as shocked as I am about this. So we as Muslims are allowed to speak on behalf of Allah swt (Auudubillah) and say who died or didn’t die a Muslim saying there is no room for him as a Muslim. I’m appalled by these statements leaders of this muslim community are saying. Are we really forgetting that they are still suspects. The Muslim community condemning the action is one thing but to go as far as to say they will not lead the funeral for these people before proof is even put forth against them is really just something else. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty or did they forget the Islamic ruling on that?
Any ways if they did do it then i hope Justice is saught in this world and the hereafter but if they weren’t responsible then May Allah swt forgive us all for neglecting to find out and spread the truth and punish those who have been so quick to jump to conclusion.
