Srebrenica – The Massacre

Bosnian Muslim women pray before some of the 613 coffins laid out in preparation for mass burial ceremony at the Srebrenica Memorial Cemetery in Potocari.

The remains of 613 people will be buried alongside the 4,524 victims of the massacre already interred in the vast cemetery, which faces the former UN army base.

Some 8,000 Muslim men and boys were killed in just a few days after the eastern town under UN protection was captured by Bosnian Serb forces 16 years ago.

The eminent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Muhammad `Ali Al-Hanooti, member of the North American Fiqh Council, states:

“Jihad in the Qur’aan is a term that signifies striving and endeavoring. The root of that word in Arabic is Jahd, which means spending energy and potential for a certain cause. It covers up practically four areas in the Islamic cause:

1) Teaching people the message of Islam: Any plans or steps of making Da`wah is a kind of Jihad. Allah, Most High, says: “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites! Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey’s end.” (At-Tawbah: 73)
