ICNA condoles Egyptian people on Morsi's death

—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
 
NEW YORK, NY (June 17, 2019) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) today offered its deepest sympathies to the people of Egypt on the death of their first and only democratically elected ruler, President Mohammad Morsi.

May AllahAll Praises Be To Allah Grant the Highest levels of Paradise to Dr. Morsi and Bless his family with patience and perseverance in this difficult time. Ameen.
ICNA calls on the international community to condemn the sham trials and executions of civilians perceived as political opponents to the current military regime.
Last year the Independent Detention Review Panel formed by British members of parliament, warned that the lack of medical treatment could result in Morsi’s “premature death”.
Sarah Whitson, executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Middle East and North Africa division, called Morsi’s death “terrible but entirely predictable”, given the government’s failure to allow him adequate medical care.
Earlier Amnesty International had described the death sentences handed out to Morsi and others as a “vengeful march to the gallows.”
ICNA also asks the US government to reconsider providing millions of dollars in Military aid to the current dictatorship in light of continued denial of political representation to all Egyptians and the brutal suppression of any peaceful political activity.

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!
