ICL Press Release:
Muslims in Lexington are shocked to learn the news about the arrest of Imam Mahmoud Shalash. The situation is unfolding and we do not have enough details at this time.
Also, we believe that every American citizen is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
We would like to emphasize that Islam is a religion built on peace and tolerance. Murder or conspiring for a murder is regarded in the Quran as a grave sin:
"And he who intentionally kills a believer, his reward is Hell. He shall abide therein forever, and the wrath and the curse of God are upon him. And
He has prepared for him a dreadful doom". (Chapter 4: Verse 93)
"If any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one
saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people". (Chapter 5: Verse 32)
