ICNA Strongly Condemns Assault on Civilians in Syria

—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
 
NEW YORK, NY (March. 18, 2018) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) strongly condemns the ongoing bombing of Ghouta, Syria. Hundreds of innocent civilians including children, women and the elderly have been killed and injured in the past few days.

“We send our prayers to the families of the victims who perished, and those who are injured. In Syria, human life has lost its dignity and it’s time for people of conscious to stand up and oppose this massacre” said Javaid Siddiqi, President of ICNA.
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]
We urge all Mosques to dedicate the Friday sermon to the crisis and appeal to the community to call their Senators asking them each to urge President Trump to intervene and stop the bombing in Ghouta.
We also urge the U.N. officials to take measures to provide immediate humanitarian aid to the victims and allow other relief agencies access to the affected areas.
We appeal to Muslim organizations to reach out to their interfaith partners to join us in condemning the murderous bombings of Ghouta.
Please donate for the much needed medical supplies, food and other emergency aid: http://www.hhrd.org

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

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!
