In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-Merciful.
Allah (s.w.t.) said: “When the girl buried-alive will be asked, for what sin was she killed”.
With utmost sorrow and grief did we receive the news of the extremely unbearable and saddening martyrdom of an innocent and oppressed child, our beloved Zakariya, in a place which was once the station of divine revelations – the Holy city of Medina.
This merciless and tyrannical execution committed by the hands of a person with anti-Islamic and inhuman thoughts, portrays the viciousness of such namesake human but animal-like creatures who have unfortunately spend years of their lives near the two Holy shrines, at the centre of the Quranic revelations, in the vicinity of the Holy shrine of the Prophet of Mercy, Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his progeny). Such people invoke towards darkness and evil, and try to distance humanity from the divine threshold of Allah (s.w.t.).
Is there not an iota of mercy or love in the impure hearts of these worse than animal creatures? Why are the international organizations and rulers of Islamic countries, especially Saudi Arabia, remaining silent before such vicious atrocities and approving this tragedy with their silence?
We express our heartfelt condolence to the grief-stricken parents of Zakariya, who are the lovers of the Holy Progeny of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him & his progeny), and we request Allah (s.w.t.) to bless them with graceful patience and great reward in return of this huge tragedy, and to punish the oppressors and tyrants of the world with the gravest of punishments.
“And the wrongdoers will soon know at what goal they will end up”.
The holy city of Qom.
