Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas; Blessings, Peace and Goodwill to all Humankind!
As One Human Family (Bani Adam), we remember the victims of genocide, who lost their lives at the hands of people who allowed their souls to be consumed with ignorance, hatred and violence.
“…if anyone slays a human being – unless it be [in punishment] for murder or for spreading corruption on earth – it shall be as though he had slain all mankind; whereas, if anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he had saved the lives of all mankind…”
~ Holy Qur’an 5:32 (M. Asad)
We pray our Human Family learns from these horrific mistakes, never again to repeat their like on any of our sisters and brothers again, now or in the future.

Jabir heard the Prophet (peace be upon him) say:
A Muslim is he from whose hand and tongue the Muslims are safe. (Muslim 14)
Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: A Muslim is one from whose tongue and hand the Muslims are safe and a believer is one in whom people place their trust in regard to their life and wealth. (Al-Tirmidhi 3)
Narrated Abdullah bin Amr:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands. And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden.” (Al-Bukhari 1:9)
