The Quran teaches that if you save the life of one person it would be is if you saved all of humanity.

Suratul Maidah (5:32)

مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَٰلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّهُ مَن قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَلَقَدْ جَاءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ ثُمَّ إِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فِي الْأَرْضِ لَمُسْرِفُونَ

On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

Rev Boyd said, “We come together to heal and affirm the dignity of our community, to advance the values of peace, safety and a shared community”.

Sources report his remains were sent to his family with the help of the Moroccan government.

According to Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, “While the nation is grappling with a spike in police brutality directed toward black people and the resultant black rage, let us not forget that the overwhelming majority of black lives lost is due to black-on-black crime”.
