Indeed, the Trumps of U.S. and numerous other world leaders who target Muslims only for their faith need to take a leaf from the book of Jacinda Ardern and her fellow New Zealanders.
Every single one of us who goes to the mosque could picture themselves in that mosque in New Zealand, living those exact moments.
A prayer leader in white skullcap issued the call to regular Friday prayers at 1.30 pm as thousands listened in Christchurch's Hagley Park, across from the Al Noor Mosque.
Ardern led thousands of people in a two minute vigil on Friday as the shocked nation came together to remember those killed in the attack.
"Ardern listened to her constituents" outrage and declared that within days her government would introduce new controls on the military-style weapons that the Christchurch shooter and numerous mass killers in the United States have used on their rampages", the editorial said.
Yesterday's funeral prayers for Haji-Daoud Nabi, the 71-year-old Afghan refugee who died trying to protect others at the Masjid Al Noor last Friday, were briefly interrupted by a loud roar.
Seven days ago, Al Noor Mosque Imam Gamal Fouda looked into the eyes of a killer.
Tens of thousands of people paid their respects around the country with some forming human chains in front of mosques. With the incidents being on the back of the New Zealand attacks, people's fears are more heightened.
"We are alive, we are together, we are determined to not let anyone divide us".
Pointing towards families of the victims, he said your loved ones did not die in vain, their blood has watered the seeds of hope.
"We are so happy that this prayer will be broadcast to the entire world so that everyone can be part of it", said Mustafa Farouk, president of the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand. Thank you for your tears, thank you for your haka, thank you for your flowers, thank you for your love and your compassion.
Fouda thanked the New Zealand Government and everyone who had shown "that Muslims matter". "Retweeting or sharing screenshots of this type of content only serves to spread it further and gives it more visibility to more people".
"It's given me for the first time an appreciation for what it must be like to be a minority and to wear clothing that perhaps the majority don't normally wear", she said by telephone from Auckland.
