NEW YORK, NY (August 14, 2016) – It is with a heavy heart that ICNA mourns the murders of Imam Maulama and Imam Thara in New York City. The rise of gun violence in our nation is incredibly troubling as we continue to come to terms with yet another senseless tragedy.

ICNA calls on law enforcement to conduct a thorough investigation, including looking into the possibility of this being a hate crime.
Imams Maulama and Thara represented the best in America, by leading communities and living out the American dream by having both faith and country. This senseless act of violence not only tears two families apart, but throws an entire community into fear and turmoil.
ICNA Relief has pledged $5,000 for the families of the two fallen victims. To donate to the families, you can visit:

There will be a press conference before the Janaza.

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!
