There were many heroes at Riverside all are worthy of praise, but Omar Muchiris interview really resonated with me. The way he recounts it with calmness but then you compare the look on his face after the attack, the trauma in his eyes after he faced death!! Very sad...
My highlight of the interview is when Omar said he lost his gun at Riverside and attackers were shooting. He thought it was the end of him so he decided to pray. He quotes the Quran saying that everyone must die in the end to say he had no fear to face the terrorists...
It’s interesting that the same Quran verse used by terrorists to encourage suicide bombers is the same Omar used to get courage at Riverside...“Every soul shall taste death. We try you with good and evil [in this life], and in the end, you shall return to us.” Al-Anbiya 35
A perfect example of how the same Quran that’s used to bring the best out of someone, is the same one that’s used to bring the worst. Same way the same gun that’s used by heroes to save us, is the same one that’s used by terrorists to instill fear in us. #Riversideattack
May God guide those who because of their lack of knowledge on the Quran are misled by warlords who are selfishly looking to further their personal interests by using the Quran as a tool of war instead of peace. And may Allah bring unity amongst all Kenyans. Ameen! #Weareone
