ICNA Horrified by the violent events in Paris

-—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—-

NEW YORK, NY (November 13, 2015) – The Islamic Circle of North America ​is horrified by the series of events taking place in France. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims, the first responders, and all of the people of France.

"The loss of innocent lives, especially on a mass scale is devastating to all people of conscience. ICNA stands united with the people of France and all persons of good conscience in condemning this senseless outrage that threatens the safety of all of us.

"ICNA also appeals to the French authorities to take swift action in apprehending the perpetrators of this attack and bring them to justice.

"This kind of violence is inhuman and barbaric and is not justifiable by any religion. We are closely monitoring the news and o​​ur prayers are for the victims and their families at this difficult time." said ICNA President Naeem Baig.

Allah says, "Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors." [Quran 5:32]

See a detailed article on ICNA's stance on violence and extremism:
Islam Condemns Extremism


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.

Paris Attacks are Despicable, Our Prayers are with the Victims

November 14, 2015

The attacks in Paris were horrific and despicable, and taking innocent life violates the principles of every faith. The orchestration of multiple locations and maximization of casualties shows a sinister disregard for life that is grossly at odds with any and all of us as human beings and as American citizens.

We must redouble our efforts for partnership and cooperation with law enforcement, as they have the challenging dual responsibility to neutralize any terrorist threat and also to protect communities from any backlash.

Our country must be united in this time of crisis; unity will enhance our efforts to fend off any violent extremism and preserve the values of our society.

To mitigate any attempt by ISIS in their recruiting efforts in the U.S., we are promoting programs to build resilience against its terrorist ideology.

Our prayers and condolences go out to the families and loved ones of the victims.

We share these same condolences with the French Embassy, and later this week, plan to visit the Embassy with our interfaith partners as a way to express our collective concern and solidarity.

We also acknowledge the carnage that took place in Beirut. Our hearts go out to those impacted by that attack and to all victims of terrorism around the world.

In peace,

Salam Al-Marayati
President

Important FREE Presentation about the FBI and the Entrapment of American Muslims

DOWNLOAD PDF FLYER

WHEN: Sunday, Nov 15, 3:00 – 5:00 pm

WHERE: Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102

As has been reported in the America media, in their attempt to fight an ill-conceived "war on terror," agencies of the US Government, especially the FBI, are often the very authors of the attempted terror attacks they are charged with preventing. This tactic often involves the recruitment and manipulation by the FBI of impressionable young men in the American Muslim community, a ploy known as "entrapment" that makes use of informants.

Award-winning investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson, author of The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI's Manufactured War on Terrorism, will discuss his reporting on the FBI's use of informants and stings in U.S. Muslim communities. He will also show his documentary for Al Jazeera Media Network, "Informants," which screened at the London Investigative Film Festival. Aaronson is a 2015 TED Fellow, and he has been featured on CBS This Morning, NPR's All Things Considered, MSNBC, This American Life, and WNYC's On the Media, among others. For further information, call the CAIR office, 267-515-6710.

Do not miss this important program. Please distribute this announcement widely.

AsSalaamu Alaykum wa Rehmatullah brothers, sisters, and friends,
"Who so ever kills a soul except as a punishment for murder or mischief in the land, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and who so ever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind," (Qur'an: 5:32)

NAIT affirms and unequivocally reiterates that those who commit acts of terror, murder and cruelty in the name of Islam are not only destroying innocent lives, but are also betraying the values of the faith they claim to represent. No injustice towards Muslims can ever justify the massacre of innocent lives, and no act of terror will ever serve the cause of Islam. NAIT strongly condemn the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. No religious tradition can ever justify nor condone such ruthless and senseless acts of violence. Our prayers and condolences go out to the family and loved ones of the victims.
Just as we reject a Muslim committing terror, we deplore any kind of terrorism committed against any faith based organization or its members and stand in solidarity with our fellow Americans against any form of terror or racism regardless of the perpetrator. NAIT's primary mission is to protect the properties of those centers and is not involved in the operational management of those facilities. We encourage all centers to have good governance while respecting local, State and Federal laws. We encourage them to reach out to other interfaith organizations, reach out their neighbors, and lend a helping hand to those in need. We also encourage centers' leadership to speak out against terrorism, be inclusive of women, and maintain close relationship with law enforcement agencies.
The current wave of Islamophobia and its leaders continue tirelessly to paint law abiding Muslims with the same brush tainted by the extremists on the fringe, and NAIT is no exception. CAIR, MAS, ISNA, ICNA, NAIT and countless Muslim organizations have been unfairly targeted with the hope of limiting their support from the community to reduce their influence and effectiveness. We urge all Muslims to increase their support to their local centers as well as the national organizations that are in the forefront in the fight to protect Islam and Muslims.
We repudiate and dissociate ourselves from any "Muslim" group or individual who commits such brutal and un-Islamic acts resulting in harm to any human being. We refuse to allow our faith to be held hostage by the criminal actions of so called Muslims acting outside the teachings of both the Qur'an and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad and the prophets who came before him, peace be upon them all.
O believers! Stand firm for justice and bear true witness for the sake of Allah, even though it be against yourselves, your parents or your relatives. It does not matter whether the party is rich or poor - Allah is well-wisher of both. So let not your selfish desires swerve you from justice. If you distort your testimony or decline to give it, then you should remember that Allah is fully aware of your actions.(Qur'an 4:135)
