(NEW YORK, NY, January 3, 2015) – Yesterday evening the American Muslim community lost Dr. Maher Hathout, a visionary leader and thinker.

Dr. Hathout pioneered a number of projects, including the New Horizon School System and the Muslim Public Affairs Council. He coherently articulated the compatibility of being a faithful Muslim and an active American citizen, stressing that Islam was a religion of coexistence and moderation.
He was well-known for his kindness, generosity and compassion. Over the years, he was given a number of awards that recognized his commitment to peacemaking, interfaith relations, and humanity.
“May Allah forgive him, have mercy on him, and bless him with the highest place in Paradise,” said Naeem Baig, the president of the Islamic Circle of North America. “Our prayers are with him and his family and loved ones.”

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!
