ICNA Deplores Killings in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
 
NEW YORK, NY (Nov. 8, 2018) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) expresses its strongest condemnation of the horrific shooting that took place last night in Thousand Oaks, California. The indiscriminate attack killed 13 including the shooter and a police officer according to the latest media report​​s.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, this is the 307th mass shooting in America this year. Such violence has occurred so often that we risk becoming inured to its horrors.
We are alarmed at the rise of cases of domestic terrorism and gun violence in our country. There should be no place in our society for indiscriminate violence at such regularity. There have been too many mass shootings in our country, causing the deaths of many innocent men, women and children.
ICNA urges law makers to address the rising tide of this senseless gun violence with common sense gun laws.

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!
