NEW YORK, NY (March 27, 2016) – In a press statement today, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) condemned in the strongest possible terms, the terrorist attack in the Pakistani city of Lahore that killed at least 67 people and injured more than 300 others.

“These cowardly terrorist attacks on innocent people go directly against the teachings of Islam.
“In the last few weeks we witnessed such attacks taking place in Turkey, Mali and Brussels and many innocent civilians lost their lives or were wounded. We pray for the families of the victims and the injured. Lahore is a city with great Islamic traditions and the people of Lahore are known for their generosity and kindness. They are all in our prayers.
“The Pakistani government must step up its efforts to provide security to its people particularly minorities and the vulnerable, and work to bring the perpetrators of such violence to account.
“ICNA reminds all that the Prophet Muhammad, ﷺ, peace be upon him, granted protection to all who lived under his governance, regardless of race or religion.

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!
