Shooting in Seattle

The Muslim Women's League condemns the killing of a woman and wounding of five others at a Jewish center in Seattle, Washington.  In the Quran, God reveals, "And do not take the human being's life, which is sacred according to God's law, except in (the pursuit of justice)..."  Thus human life is a gift from God and must be treated in the most dignified manner.
