Statement of Solidarity with Palestinian Civil Society

“Respect the rights of God and the rights of people, and likewise, persuade your companions and kin to do likewise. Otherwise, you will be committing injustice against yourself and injustice to humanity… Nothing deprives people of divine blessings or invites divine wrath against them more easily than cruelty. Verily, God listens to the voice of the oppressed and comes down on the oppressor.”

— Excerpt from Head of State Ali Ibn Abi Talib’s (pbuh) letter to Governor Malik Al Ashtar, 658 AD
