Statement to support Justice

Muslim Association of Cleveland East (MACE) condemns the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery which lay bare the deep wounds of racism that have plagued our country for too long.
We lend our voices to those of the many community partners and organizations calling for justice for members of our community who have faced violence because of the color of their skin. While the journey toward a more just society is demanding, we must each take steps that propel us all forward.
As Prophet Mohammad, may the Lord’s peace and blessings be upon him, said in his finalsermon: “All mankind is from Adamand Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor a non-Arab has any superiorityover an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black, nor a black has anysuperiority over white except by piety and good action.”
Let us acknowledge the pain so many are feeling and find ways to support the African-American community and with all oppressed people. Let us remember those who have suffered and lost from racism and hatred. And let us find strength in our shared humanity and our hope for justice.
