MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF THE ISLAMIC CENTRE OF ENGLAND FOLLOWING THE TERRIBLE TRAGEDY AT THE PORT OF BEIRUT, LEBANON
Hujjatul Islam wa al Muslimeen, Seyed Hashem Moosavi, Representative of the Wali al Faqih and director of the Islamic Centre of England, sends a message to the noble people of Lebanon expressing his condolences, following the horrible explosion at the Port of Beirut.
The complete text of the message is as follows:
In the Name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful
The horrible catastrophe at the Port of Beirut that has resulted in the death, injury and losses to numbers of the noble citizens of Lebanon has shocked the hearts of those who love this country as a nation of resistance.
I would like to offer my condolences to the noble and indefatigable people of Lebanon and its respected government. I pray God Almighty grants you all patience and fortitude in the face of this great disaster.
I also hope that the upright nation of Lebanon would consequently protect social unity and stand up in solidarity to defeat any type of attempt to sow discord and division at this time.
This terrible incident has occurred in the middle of a situation where the wounds resulting from the repeated attacks of their enemies upon the country and its people have not yet been treated, and where oppressive sanctions by international arrogance violating the people’s human rights still continue. These pose serious impediments to the possibility providing for the essential needs of the oppressed people of Lebanon in response to this awful incident.
We look forward to the rapid response of altruistic countries and peoples to provide the humanitarian aid to alleviate the grief and suffering of this noble people, and to make the conditions possible for all those injured and hurt in this accident to return as quickly as possible to their normal lives, insha Allah.
Seyed Hashem Moosavi
Director of the Islamic Centre of England
