—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
 
NEW YORK (Aug. 11, 2018) – The Islamic Circle of North America today expresses its deepest condolences to the family of 3-year-old Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, who is the grandson of the renowned Muslim leader Imam Siraj Wahhaj.

ICNA offers its heartfelt prayers to the family of Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj and our Imam Siraj during these extraordinarily difficult times.
Imam Siraj also known as “America’s Imam” has been a tall supporter of Muslims and a well-respected voice of the community for the past 4 decades.
Imam Siraj has been a solid supporter of the Muslim community for many decades. He was instrumental in leading his Mosque in ridding the neighborhood of crime and bringing the youth back from a life of wrongdoing.
“ICNA has always stood by Imam Siraj and we will continue to do so in face of the despicable efforts to malign his good name by a few known hate groups and individuals.” said Javaid Siddiqi, President of ICNA.
ICNA supports and encourages the law enforcement to bring to conclusion the case as early as possible and justice to Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj. The law enforcement should also appreciate the valuable assistance Imam Siraj gave during the investigation.
ICNA also urges the public and the media to desist from facilitating the hateful blogs against Imam Siraj and the spreading of rumors.

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!
