We, the undersigned, condemn all acts of terrorism against all people of any religion, nationality, or ethnic group. We condemn these actions based on the teachings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him and all the prophets of God) and the subsequent heritage of his noble companions and sound Islamic scholars who always summarily rejected and condemned acts of murder, terrorism, banditry against innocent civilians, and who made the blood of all of mankind sacrosanct. We condemn the ideologies and justifications that are used to explain such crimes, as they have no basis in Islam or any other religion. We emphatically reject the use of political events including Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, and others to justify these criminal acts. Those who do so confuse and corrupt the clear legal principles in Islamic law. We ask that those who are considered to be scholars among the Muslims to support this statement and to step forward and call for a concrete plan of action to stop these evil crimes and false ideologies. We ask that the criminals responsible for the recent Mumbai attacks and all other attacks against innocent civilians in the name of Islam and other ideologies be brought to justice and punished severely and swiftly. We, the undersigned, ask Allah for peace and security of all peoples, and to clear Islam and its followers of the crimes committed in its name by extremist groups around the world.

Elizabeth Ihsan Rose, United States5 years ago Comments: I abhor and condemn the killing of innocents. Every Muslim I know feels the same. The Qur'an tells us that if you kill one innocent person, it is as if you have killed all of humanity; if you save one life, it is as if you have saved all of humanity. The Islam that I follow stands for peace, love, mercy, justice and freedom for all of humanity. I believe that the true heart of every authentic religion teaches the same. I pray that Allah will hasten the day when all of humanity will follow the religion of love and compassion that He has taught us through all of His Prophets and Messengers, peace and blessings be upon them all.
