Assalamu'alaikum (peace be upon you) Valued Community Members,
We write in response to the horrific acts of violence and hate against the Muslim community in Christchurch, New Zealand. Nueces Mosque stands with all people of faith, places of worship and peace-loving individuals to unequivocally condemn such acts of terrorism, Islamophobia and xenophobia. We express our deepest condolences to the families affected and take a moment to remember our brothers and sisters who lost their lives in the senseless violence.
With the attack having been carried out at two mosques, we understand and share the concerns about safety while attending Jummah prayers today at Nueces Mosque. The safety of our congregants is of utmost priority and we are working closely with local law enforcement authorities and CAIR to increase security at the mosque. No person should feel unsafe while engaging in worship.

Lastly, please take a moment on this blessed day of Jummah to pray for the deceased and their families and friends. May Allah (swt) grant them the highest ranks in Jannah, and may He protect Muslims worldwide as we engage in His remembrance today. Ameen.
