Imam Hussain Mosque Attack South Africa

 

Brutal Attack on Innocent Shia Muslims in The Imam Hussain Mosque in Ottawa Verulam, South Africa

 

 إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ

 

 

The World Federation is deeply saddened and appalled by the barbaric attack on The Imam Hussain Mosque in Ottawa Verulam, north of Durban, South Africa.

 

This cowardly act of violence only seeks to spread hate and our best response is to unite in solidarity and stand against those evil beings and terrorists who wish to divide us.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the two who remain in critical condition and with the family of Muhammed Abbas Essop who was killed in the attack.

The Janazah of our Shaheed Muhammad Abbas Essop son of Muhammad Ali Essop and Aunty Farida will be performed at 5pm Friday 11 May 2018 at Imam Husayn Mosque, Old Main Road, Ottawa, Durban. 

 

May the spirit of Imam Husain’s (as) live with him. As a martyr may Allah grant him the company of the master of martyrs and his loyal brother Abul Fadhl Al-Abbas.

 

 

 

Please recite Surah Fatiha.

 

 

 لبيك يا حسين لبيك يا حسين لبيك يا حسين
