The following is mentioned in Islam Holy book (Qur’an):

“If anyone kills a person not in retaliation of murder, nor in punishment of spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.”
(Surah number 5 – Surah Al Ma’idah=The Table Spread with Food- verse number 32)

We feel deeply sad for the many noble lives those were snatched in this terroristic crime, and we offer our condolence for the innocent victims.

Although ISIS is an organization that ascribes itself to Islam, its actions justified by its members go just against the peace-loving teachings of Islam. Such cruelty is obviously a crime in Islam, and is, therefore, condemned so far by Islam scholars and Islamic associations all over the world. Furtherance of bias or discrimination against Islam, and extension of world-wide corruption because of this accident should be avoided.

To everybody in Japan; try not to mix up ISIS with Islam please. If we take Muslims who are following Qur’an and Hadith (recorded speech and actions of the prophet), we will not find anyone supports ISIS. We ask you a favor from the bottom of our hearts, not to damage the warm friendship between you and the Muslims living in Japan.

To people of the media; please understand that there is no relation between ISIS and usual Muslims. We are asked to make comments by various news mediums; however we also think the same as everybody. We think that ISIS is a mean cruel inexcusable group too. To the mediums that mix us up with ISIS; Please abstain from that. Please stop the reports those incite the worries of everybody in Japan. The children of Muslims living in Japan are suffering. Please relieve us.

To Muslims; there is no element justifying actions of ISIS anywhere in Islam. It is Jihad to convey the right Islam, to struggle against bias and misunderstanding. Let’s protect the children from discrimination and teasing. Then let’s pray for the peace of the world.
