ICNA Observes the 20th Anniversary of 9/11

Sep 10, 2021

—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—

NEW YORK, NY (September 11, 2021) – Today marks the 20th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. It serves as both a reminder of one of the most traumatizing occurrences to unfold on American soil and as a testimony to the resilience of every community living here in America.

Each sector of the nation’s population was physically, emotionally, and psychologically impacted by the three-pronged coordinated attack on the United States.

Muslim Americans bore the brunt of the collective outrage of our fellow citizens as the alleged perpetrators were identified as being Muslims.

Yet, Muslims were also among the dead from the attack on the twin towers after the unprecedented attack. Among the innocent victims. more than 60 Muslim families also lost loved ones that day.

Our beloved brother Tariq Amanullah, a dedicated worker of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), lost his life on the 88th floor in the south tower of the World Trade Center on that day. He left behind a wife and two young children.

Muslims are an integral part of the fabric of American society. They have contributed tremendously to the betterment of this nation. American Muslims have, and always will, reject any domestic or foreign acts of terrorism. We are committed to striving to make the United States and the world a better place for all human beings.

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!
