Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha
May Allah give them Jannah. Ameen.
These three young Muslims were killed. It's being said these Muslims were killed for reasons of Islamophobia.
In the interest of fairness, we must highlight the police at this stage mention the murderer, Craig Stephen Hicks, did have a parking dispute which they believe may have motivated the killings. As per a NYDailyNews report:
The shooting, and lack of initial reporting on it, sparked a #MuslimLivesMatter hashtag and many believed the incident to be a hate crime, but police Wednesday morning said Hicks and the victims had an "ongoing neighbor dispute over parking" which may have motivated the killings.
Allah knows best
Muslim message to the killer, Craig Stephen Hicks:
People can be transformed. The opponents of the Prophet (p) were particularly vicious against Muslims. Hind actually bit into the liver of the Prophet's uncle, Hamzah, when he was martyred at the Battle of Uhud. However, she later became a Muslim, and hence became a Companion of the Prophet (p), a member of that special generation of humanity. In fact, she even narrated hadith which can be found in the well-known compilations. Repentance is a recourse that the Lord of the World's has given humanity. [p129, Purification of the Heart by Hamza Yusuf]
