Saw this on the BBC breaking news, those were my first thoughts too, but they're not mentioning terrorists or bombs.

So going by the terminology they don't think it is Muslims.

May Allah protect and guide us all.

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Condolences, Prayers and Support After Boston Marathon and JFK Library Explosions

The Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center and the Boston-Muslim community is deeply saddened by the tragic occurrence at the Boston Marathon and JFK Library, both icons of our great City. We are concerned for the loss of life and injuries to the victims. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the victims and their families, to the marathon organizers, runners and fans, and to our Boston community at large.

As Bostonians, and inspired by the values of mercy and justice central to our faith, the American-Muslim community stands ready to help. We have close to 40 ISBCC volunteers on site who are committed to assist in relief efforts and also donate blood. Should the City call upon us, we are also ready to transform the ISBCC into a disaster relief center. Additionally, we extend our spiritual counseling services to any of the victims and their family members.

We hold to the highest standard the human safety and security of our City, its people and its guests. We encourage any Bostonian who sees any suspicious activity or package to report it to the number provided by the Boston Police Chief: 800-494-TIPS (800-494-8477).

Assalaam alaikum Islamicsocks,

Your views are completely antithetical to mine and almost everyone on this board. I don't really know how many times I have to ban you. I am sure there are other boards more to your taste and your viewpoints. It's a free internet, but as we know this forum isn't a democracy, but set up for a certain purpose and with certain guidelines. Jazaks for your participation.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "A time will come when the murderer will not know why he has committed the murder, and the victim will not know why he has been killed." - Sahih Muslim, Hadith 1356

Indeed the killings of innocent lives these days perfectly fit in this prophesy. May Allah protect us and save us from the trepidations of this period.

Ameen bro Sadah.

Also in the news they've finally clarified that the Saudi student is a witness not a suspect.

http://colorlines.com/archives/2013/04/injured_saudi_is_a_witness_not_a_suspect_in_boston_marathon_violence.html


Law enforcement officials said Tuesday that a Saudi student who was injured during the violence in Boston yesterday is a witness, not a suspect. That clarification has become important in the aftermath of Monday’s tragic events. False and racially coded reports have surfaced over the past 24 hours speculating that the Saudi student in question was somehow responsible.

Here’s more from the Washington Post:

The Saudi, who is recuperating at a Boston hospital, is in his 20s and is in the United States on a Saudi scholarship to study at a university in the Boston area.

The federal officials’ explanation echoed comments by a Saudi official at the country’s embassy in Washington. The embassy official said that a Saudi national has been questioned as a witness but is not regarded as a suspect. The Saudi official cited information provided to the embassy by U.S. law enforcement officials.

“We’re not aware of any Saudi suspect or Saudi person of interest,” said the Saudi official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the preliminary nature of the information.

The young man sustained serious injuries and reportedly volunteered to have his home searched by investigators, according to the Post.

Assalamu Alaikum,

A lot of people at my school are posting about this - alhamdulillah many of them are already disgusted with the warmongers attempting to pin this on Islam - but I would like to put in my two cents. Can any of you help me think of what to say? Should I repost Imam Suhaib Webb's Boston condolences?

Just horrible...I hope and have a feeling it will be a domestic (non-brown) terrorist, given the date/time of year. Meaning anti-government.

(Don't even want to think what Br socks said)

It is scary..."Muslims" was even a worldwide trend on Twitter  Sad so many ignorant people, not to mention that commentator who said all Muslims should be killed...some good pieces have been written in the short time since the attacks though.

It's by Sana Saeed again  Smiley

SUSPECT ID'ed...

*Holding my breath*

From CNN  -

"Investigators believe they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, a source who has been briefed on the investigation told CNN's John King exclusively.
The breakthrough came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. Video from a Boston television station also contributed to the progress, said the source, who declined to be more specific but called it a significant development."

Guess I shouldn't quote CNN...I don't even watch it anymore...lot of hate on them right now on Twitter  Smiley

Maybe MSNBC from American media channels, but otherwise, I prefer...oh I think you know which channel I prefer hehe.

They have lost 50% of their viewers in recent times...Wolf B is the worst among the many hosts...
