Ulama Condolences: Gay Nightclub Shootings

Question ID: 20349


You may have heard of the recent shooting in America in a gay night club by a person with a Muslim name.

As a result Ulama felt the need to apologise for his actions.

One scholar wrote: “Every member of the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer) community is my brother and sister.”

Mufti Menk wrote on his Twitter account that his thoughts were with the victims and families.

Imam Shu’aib Webb wrote that his thoughts and prayers were with the victims, their families and the LGBTQ community.

Does Shari’ah permit these type of condolences?

The Shariat does NOT permit such condolences.
Did any of these sympathises comment on the 224 un-armed, innocent Muslims who were brutally martyred in Syria?
Seek the ‘fatawa’ from you heart.
