ICNA Condemns Anti-Semitic Attacks

Dec 30, 2019

—-FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—-
 
NEW YORK, NY (December 30, 2019) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) expresses its heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims of the horrific stabbings during Hanukkah celebrations in Monsey, New York and the string of anti-Semitic attacks on the Jewish community and their religious institutions.

Today our thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims and the Jewish community of New York. We can not and should not tolerate attacks on any religious community and stand up together against anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. We urge the management of places of worship to be on-guard and take extra security precautions.

Over a dozen recent anti-Semitic attacks and incidents continue to remind us of the presence of religious persecution and hate in our country and its alarming increase in recent years.

ICNA calls for an end to the rising public rhetoric of intolerance that stigmatizes groups and communities and subject them to these attacks.

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!
