ICNA Condemns a Night of Terror at Masjid-al Aqsa

ICNA Condemns a Night of Terror at Masjid-al Aqsa

May 9, 2021

NEW YORK, NY (May 9, 2021) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) strongly condemns Israel’s heavy-handed tactics against Palestinian demonstrators after plans are made to evict them from their homes on land claimed by Jewish occupiers. Israeli police fired “rubber bullets” and so-called stun grenades injuring almost 200 Palestinians at Islam’s third holiest Mosque in this Blessed Month of Ramadhan while in prayer. against helpless civilians

Such brutal and barbaric actions violate every international agreement and accord. Let alone this violation has taken place at a venerable place of worship and especially on the 27th Night of Blessed Month of Ramadhan.

For too long Israeli forces have provoked Palestinians only to fire at them in the name of rock-throwing. But the bottom line is evicting Palestinians from their homes in Jerusalem and imposing illegitimate Israeli sovereignty over them has been the reason for the struggle of oppressed Palestinian people for many decades.

Palestinians must be guaranteed their fundamental human rights to practice their religion in peace and not to be uprooted from their homes that are owned by them for centuries. ICNA stands in complete solidarity with our Palestinian brothers and sisters and calls on our elected officials and the international community to categorically condemn practices that violate the sanctity of the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque and uprooting Palestinians from their homes. We call on the world to stop practicing double standards and stand for justice for the Palestinian people.

The Islamic Circle of North America is a leading American Muslim organization dedicated to the betterment of society through the application of Islamic values. Since 1968, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services and relief efforts.

First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah

The inclusion of poor in our festivity must be done without which we cannot complete our service to Allah SWT. How many societies the poor is left out of the pie and the rich eats the entire pie. A few weeks ago, we celebrated Eid-ul Fitr. And on that Eid, we enjoy its virtues by giving the Zakaat-ul Fitr to the poor before we begin the Eid prayer. This Eid we have to complete its celebration by giving 1/3 of the meat to the poor and needy. As Allah SWT says: Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor who have a very hard time. (22:28) EID MUBAARAK!
