My heart goes out to the victims of Boston bombing. My prayers are with them and I understand that no amount of feelings of sorrow on my part will bring comfort to those who lost their loved ones or got seriously injured.
But I also feel that I should not be defending my faith, Islam, when some deranged people decide to kill the innocents in its name. They have nothing to do with me and all the peace-loving Muslims who live in America as loyal citizens.
Islam teaches me that loyalty to one’s country is part of the faith.
In the Holy Quran God says “If you kill a single human being it is as you have killed all humanity.”
Killing is a grave sin. God permitted no one to kill in His name.
