ICNA & USCMO thank Americans for attending Palestinian solidarity rallies

May 16, 2021

(NEW YORK, N.Y., 5/16/21) – On behalf of the Islamic Circle of North America & the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), I would like to thank all of my brothers and sisters who came out to support the people of Palestine on the “Day of Solidarity” with the people of Palestine and to bring awareness to the situation going on right now in Sheikh Jarrah and Gaza. Alhamdulillah, thousands of people from various faiths attended these mass protests all across the country. They were there to raise their voices against the crimes being committed against the Palestine people by the extremist and Zionist government of Israel. 

Cities like Washington DC, New York, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Miami, Boston, and Los Angeles witnessed tens and thousands of people gathering and marching in solidarity 
with the people of Palestinian. 

Moreover, we would also like to thank the city officials and our law-enforcing agencies for providing their support and cooperation during these rallies. 

Remember – it doesn’t end here! Please stay tuned for the next steps as we plan to continue our efforts for the oppressed people of Palestine. We ask Allah SWT to accept our prayers and to free the Palestinian people.

Yours Truly,

Mohsin Ansari, MD

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!
