The Muslim Association of Britain would like to extend its sincere condolences to the family and friends of British Aid Worker Alan Henning who was murdered by ISIS in such tragic and deplorable circumstances.
We condemn the killing of this innocent man in no uncertain terms. This act further demonstrates that ISIS have no regard to the laws of Islam that they claim to be upholding.
Omer El-Hamdoon, MAB’s President commented: “Alan was a courageous, kind and heroic man who displayed a great example of sacrifice.

The leader of Islington Council Cllr Richard Watts and
Cllr Paul Convery visited Finsbury Park Mosque today after Friday prayer to address the Muslim
Community prior the Eid celebration, they wished the congregation a happy Eid.
