It is with a heavy heart that I’d like to inform the general public that Ergun Caner – of anti-Islamic gibberish fame, has faced a serious tragedy earlier today. His 15 year old son has committed suicide. While as Muslims we may fundamentally disagree with Ergun’s ingenuous, deceptive and generally dishonest means of preaching, our faith teaches us to be merciful to others as God has commanded us to be.
With these few words, I’d like to kindly ask that the Muslim community use this time to desist from any harsh words they may have for him, to put aside our differences with him and to enact the Prophetic example of Muhammad salallaahu ‘alayhi wa salam in praying for the comfort and peace of his family during this time. Most importantly, we ask that God guide him through this tragic occurrence and that it becomes a means of guidance for him and his family, an inspiration for him to re-think his ways.
If you can, do extend some kind words to him and pray for his guidance.
and Allaah knows best.
