Muslim Association of Brantford (Brantford Mosque) strongly condemns the recent mass shooting massacre and terrorist act at two Mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand.

Our Response To terrorist Attack

Allahamdulilah once again we responded with the message of love and peace against the one of the worst terrorist attack in two mosques at Christchurch, New Zealand. At least 49 people were killed and 20 more were seriously injured in the attacks that took place during the lunch hour in the community of Christchurch, New Zealand.  Three people were arrested including a 28-year-old man who has been charged with murder.

Religious and community leaders gathered at the Brantford Mosque on Friday to pray for those killed and wounded in the two Mosque attacks in New Zealand.  Acting Mayor Richard Carpenter and other city councillors, Tim Dobbin, Rector of Brantford’s St. Mark’s Anglican Church and Gerald Fisher of the Hamilton Jewish Federation were among those who attended the special prayer and sala-ul-janaza for the victims at Brantford Masjid after Friday prayer.

We will update the community as soon as organizers update us with more details.

Imam's Message

Assalamualikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

Abu-Hurayrah, may God be pleased with him, said that God's Messenger, may God's peace and blessings be upon him and his family, said, "Do not envy each other. Do not shill-bid each other. Do not hate each other." Reported by Muslim.

The statement of the Prophet, may God's peace and blessings be upon him, "Do not envy each other," means do not wish for others to lose the blessings that they have. This is haram. In another hadith, the Prophet says, "Do not envy each other for envy eats good deeds the way fire eats firewood or timber.[Abu Dawud]" Jealousy, on the other hand, is wishing to have what others have without wishing them not to have what they have. Sometimes the word envy is used in place of the word jealousy since they are close in meaning. For example, the Prophet, may God's peace and blessings be upon him, says, "People shouldn't envy anyone except two: a wealthy person who spends the wealth to do good deeds, and a wise person who uses the wisdom to be just and who teaches the wisdom to others.[Bukhari]" "People shouldn't envy anyone except two" means people shouldn't be jealous of anyone except two.

The statement of the Prophet, may God's peace and blessings be upon him, "Do not shill-bid each other," means do not deceive each other by artificially raising the price of goods. Ibn-Qutaybah said that the word shill-bidding (in Arabic) comes from the word deception. A hunter is called a shill-bidder because it deceives its prey.

The statement of the Prophet, may God's peace and blessings be upon him, "Do not hate each other," means do not do wrongful acts that make you hate each other. Hatred corrupts the religion.

The Masjid

The masjid is a sanctified area, in which the rewards of prayers in congregation increase 25 to 27 times and where the mercy of Allah descends. It is considered the best of places by the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) relates:

"Masjids are the houses of Allah on the earth. They shine up to the inhabitants of the heavens just as the stars in the sky shine down to the inhabitants of the earth."

A true masjid, in the legal sense, is a place that has been permanently dedicated to Allah for the sake of prayer, recitation, and His remembrance. Any piece of land that has been dedicated permanently for the sake of congregational prayers will also become a proper masjid..
