Bismillah.

Beautifully written by a Chinese revert sister. (It is written to the terrorist who attacked Muslims in NZ)

(I) Appreciate that you made the effort to find out the timing of our noon prayer.

Appreciate that you learnt more about our religion to know that Fridays are the days the men go to the Mosques for their congregational prayers.

But I guess there were some things you, rather unfortunately, didn’t get to learn.

Perhaps you didn’t know that what you did made them Martyrs.

And how you have single-handedly raised the statuses of our brothers and sisters in the eyes of their beloved Creator with your actions. And how, through your actions, they will be raised as the most righteous and pious of Muslims.

Perhaps you didn’t know that doing what you did, at the time and place you chose, it actually meant that the last words that escaped their lips were probably words of remembrance and praise of Allah. Which is a noble end many Muslims could only dream of.

And perhaps you didn’t know, but what you did would almost guarantee them paradise.

Appreciate that you showed the world how Muslims welcome, with open arms, even people like yourself into our Mosques, which is our second home.

Appreciate you for showing that our mosques have no locks or gates, and are unguarded because everyone and anyone is welcome to be with us.

Appreciate you for allowing the world to see the powerful image of a man you injured, lying on back on the stretcher with his index finger raised high, as a declaration of his faith and complete trust in Allah.

Appreciate how you brought the Churches and communities together to stand with us Muslims.

Appreciate that you made countless New Zealanders come out of their homes to visit the mosques nearest to them with flowers with beautiful messages of peace and love.

You have broken many many hearts and you have made the world weep. You have left a huge void.

But what you also have done have brought us closer together. And it has strengthened our faith and resolve.

In the coming weeks, more people will turn up in the Mosques, a place you hate so much, fortified by the strength in their faith, and inspired by their fallen brothers and sisters.

In the coming weeks, more non Muslims will turn up at the gates of mosques with fresh flowers and beautifully handwritten notes. They may not have known where the mosques in their area was. But now, they do. All because of you.

You may have achieved your aim of intended destruction, but I guess you failed to incite hatred, fear and despair in all of us.

And while I understand that it may have been your objective, I hate to say that after all of that elaborate planning, and the perverse and wretched efforts on your part, you still failed to drive a divide among the the Muslims and non-Muslims in the world.

For that, I can’t say that I’m sorry.
(A Radiant Muslim)

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
And [remember, O Muhammad], when those who disbelieved plotted against you to restrain you or kill you or evict you [from Makkah]. But they plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planner - 8:30

I just received an audio recording on whatsapp.

Apparently a non-muslim sister visited Masjid Ibrahim in Leeds today. To offer her condolences and gifts to show her support to the muslim community.

A group of Arab brothers staying over at the masjid gave her dawah. Alhamdulillah she took her Shuhadah and left as a Muslim.

And Allah Knows Best.

Justin Trudeau made an impassioned speech in the Canadian parliament this week, days after an attack on two New Zealand mosques left 50 Muslim worshippers dead.

"When we fail to denounce hatred with total conviction, we empower those people and legitimise their violence,"

Canada's prime minister said on Monday.

"We have to chase out this hatred from our parties, fight it online, denounce it at town halls, push back when it reaches our front door."

SubhanAllah!

The list is filled with such beautiful names.

May Allah Ta'ala protect and grant relief to the Ummah of Nabi Sallahu alayhi wa sallam.

Insha Allah Ta'ala this incident should be a cause for the Ummah to awake from the deep slumber that it is currently in.

Hijab back in school!

A New Zealand private school is changing its dress code to explicitly allow hijabs in the wake of the mass shooting

"Diocesan School advises that it is clarifying its intent by revising its school uniform policy so that any student who wishes to wear the hijab can do so," the principal, Heather McRae, said in theFacebook post.

The policy change came after the school initially announced that students could wear hijabs for a "scarves in solidarity" event on Friday in remembrance of the March 15 shooting by a suspected white supremacist.

That sparked a flurry of pushback, mostly by alumni, against any restrictions on the Muslim head covering.

The principal at first wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post that the school dress code was created to "help create a sense of oneness and family" and that while the hijab isn't "banned," it is also "not part of the long-standing Uniform Code."

Qiulae Wong, who graduated from the private school in 2006, said this initial announcement made it clear that the headscarf was prohibited on other days.

"We were privileged to go to a school like Diocesan — but we recognize that with privilege comes to an even greater responsibility to the wider community," Wong and a group of Diocesan School for Girls alumni said in a statement to NBC News.

The 30-year-old and dozens of her fellow alumni decided to write an open letter to the school in a Change.org petition that states a policy against hijabs does not "represent our views and what we think the school should be doing." The petition had more than 850 signatures as of Friday, and Wong says the majority are former students of the school.

"We were deeply disappointed to read your statement regarding the uniform policy at Dio in the wake of the terrorist attack in Christchurch — both for its content and its timing," the former students wrote in the Change.org open letter to McRae.

Then on Friday, the principal announced the change in policy. She said there has never been any formal request from any student or parent to wear the hijab, but it is now "an appropriate time to revise" the policy to allow it.

Wong said expressions of support for the Muslim community in New Zealand after the attacks has been "overwhelming." This decision by her former school is "about more than hijabs, but about recognizing all of society's injustices and the role we can play in correcting them."

Gang Drops Nazi Symbolism In Wake Of NZ Terror Attack

Newsweek

22 March 2019

The biggest chapter of one of New Zealand’s most feared gangs will no longer use Nazi symbolism in the wake of the massacre in Christchurch.

For more than 50 years, the Mongrel Mob has used the rallying cry “Sieg Hiel” and appropriated Nazi imagery in its designs.

But Paito Fatu, who heads the gang’s biggest chapter, the Mongrel Mob Kingdom, said that in light of the terror attacks, allegedly carried out by a self-confessed white supremacist, there had been a change of thinking.

“I like our brothers and sisters to acknowledge each other by saying ‘Mongrel Mob'" he told Maori Television's Te Ao (The World.)

Emerging in the 1960s from a group of mainly European young men in the North Island cities of Wellington and Napier, the gang reputedly got its name after a judge referred to them as a group of “mongrels.” Nowadays most of the members are from Maori or other Polynesian ethnic groups.

They have since embraced symbols associated with Hitler, while insisting that this was an anti-establishment, rather than anti-Semitic, practice. These include wearing patches of allegiance that feature a swastika and a British Bulldog wearing a German military helmet.

They have a fearsome reputation for violence and are noted for their drug running. Fatu signalled that this would change.

“It’s about a big mind shift. It’s about getting out there and doing things productively, constructively and positive to the best of our ability. Doing what everyone else is doing and trying to do a little bit better” he said.

After last week’s massacre at two Christchurch mosques, his gang joined other prominent New Zealand gangs like Black Power, King Cobras and Hells Angels in offering to protect mosques in solidarity with the Muslim community.

Fatu said: “I look at this era as a healing time. When we look back at how we used it, it was rebelling against the system. Anything that the system saw was evil and bad, we (adopted) some of those and that was just our way of (giving) the system the finger."

The Mongrel Mob Kingdom he heads in the North Island region of Waikato is the fastest growing chapter in the gang with 400 members. It has another 200 members globally including in Canada, Russia, France and the Solomon Islands, Stuff reported.

One gang member, Te Taiaha Whero Rehua, said he welcomes the change but he needed to get used to it.

"Coming away from sieg heil, I guess I've adapted to it over time. My whole background has always been 'sieg f***ing heil' since birth. That's all I ever knew.

"I didn't really look at it in-depth with Hitler and that sort of stuff. I just grew up knowing it was Mongrel Mob. But it's positive as. It's come away from 'f*** the society' and all that sort of stuff."

Fatu told Maori Television most regional chapters were not ready to follow suit and he would not attempt to sway them.

"When we do engage with other mob chapters, when they come up to me most of them will say 'Mongrel Mob'.

"Hopefully this kōrero (story) here may resonate to some of our rangatira (leaders) perhaps outside to our extended families to think about things," he added.

This is all nonsense. Why do people over look the fact that these gang members kill people in cold blood.

They pollute our society with drugs and prostitutes. This whole incident is a farce. This is going to make people commit Kufr and join stupid vigils.
