Orlando Shooting

IONA condemns the senseless killing in Orlando
The Islamic Organization of North America (IONA) condemns in the strongest terms the horrific tragedy and the senseless killing that left 50 people dead and 50 others wounded in Orlando. We extend our condolences to the families of the deceased and pray for the wounded.
Such despicable acts are contrary to the teachings of Islam. Islam recognizes the sanctity and sacredness of human life. One may not harm or kill. The Quran emphatically stresses this point, “And do not take any human being’s life – (the life) which God has willed to be sacred – except through (due process of) law.” (17:33)
Islam respects the dignity and worth of every human being in his or her own belief and endeavor in the pursuit of life and the truth.
We stand by all people of conscience to mourn the death of the victims while we pray for the survivors and their families for quick healing and for peace.
