Dear Community:

Assalaamu Alykum Wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatoh...

"To Allah belongs what He takes and to Him belongs what He gives. And there is a set time by Him for everything. Do exercise patience and expect reward (from Allah)."

Masjid Al-Hidaya Board of Governors and the Muslim community in the Tri-Cities of British Columbia extend their deepest condolences to our brothers and sisters in Ste-Foy Quebec.
Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return."

( وَلَا تَقُولُوا لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَكِنْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ ) البقرة / 154
( وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتًا بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ )
آل عمران / 169

وروى مسلم في "صحيحه" (1887) عَنْ مَسْرُوقٍ قَالَ : سَأَلْنَا عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بن مَسْعُود عَنْ هَذِهِ الْآيَةِ فقَالَ :
" أَمَا إِنَّا قَدْ سَأَلْنَا عَنْ ذَلِكَ فَقَالَ : ( أَرْوَاحُهُمْ فِي جَوْفِ طَيْرٍ خُضْرٍ لَهَا قَنَادِيلُ مُعَلَّقَةٌ بِالْعَرْشِ تَسْرَحُ مِنْ الْجَنَّةِ حَيْثُ شَاءَتْ ثُمَّ تَأْوِي إِلَى تِلْكَ الْقَنَادِيلِ ، فَاطَّلَعَ إِلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُمْ اطِّلَاعَةً فَقَالَ : هَلْ تَشْتَهُونَ شَيْئًا ؟ قَالُوا : أَيَّ شَيْءٍ نَشْتَهِي وَنَحْنُ نَسْرَحُ مِنْ الْجَنَّةِ حَيْثُ شِئْنَا ؟ فَفَعَلَ ذَلِكَ بِهِمْ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ ، فَلَمَّا رَأَوْا أَنَّهُمْ لَنْ يُتْرَكُوا مِنْ أَنْ يُسْأَلُوا قَالُوا : يَا رَبِّ نُرِيدُ أَنْ تَرُدَّ أَرْوَاحَنَا فِي أَجْسَادِنَا حَتَّى نُقْتَلَ فِي سَبِيلِكَ مَرَّةً أُخْرَى . فَلَمَّا رَأَى أَنْ لَيْسَ لَهُمْ حَاجَةٌ تُرِكُوا ) .

Insha'Allah there will be Funeral Prayer in absentia for the victims of the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec à Québec

Friday February 3rd, immediately after Friday "Juma'ah prayer"
May Allah accept their Shahada "Martyrdom"

This is the way of our beloved prophet Mohammed pbuh used to do in such situations instead of Candle Vigil which is not an Islamic practice.

We would like to thank our neighbors, all people of the Tricities, and the officials and authorities.We are receiving daily tens of e-mail, letters, Flours Bouquets, phone calls, and visits from individuals, churches, Mayors of Tricities, Councillors, RCMP and others.
Confirming that our Canadian soil is immune and protected through our unity, solidarity, diversity and respect against ignorance, aggression, terrorism and hate.

والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
