Assalam Alaikum Dear Sisters and Brothers,
past Easter Sunday we learned about the horrific attacks on innocent
people at churches and other venues in Sri Lanka. These attacks left
hundreds dead and injured. The death toll continues to rise. ICNA and
many Muslim organizations sent messages of condolences and prayers to
the people of Sri Lanka and posted strong condemnation of these attacks.
and all people of conscience are alarmed at these ruthless, barbaric
acts of terrorism against innocent people that continue to raise their
ugly head around the world. We are still trying to recover from the
recent attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and prior to
that on a synagogue in Pittsburgh and a church in Charleston. The
ideology of hate, bigotry and racism is taking a toll on the people of
this world. Its time we unite against all those who subscribe to the
ideology of hate, bigotry. Its time we show solidarity with those who
have been the victims of these atrocities regardless of religion, race
ICNA announces a “Day of Solidarity with people of Sri Lanka” this Friday, April 26, 2019. We request the Imams and Khateebs to share this “Khutbah & Appeal” in their upcoming Friday Khutbah. It is extremely important that we share Islam’s true message regarding these acts of terrorism.
I make duaa that Allah (swt) keeps us all safe. May Allah (swt) allow us to stand against all forms of injustice and violence and be an advocate of peace and unity.
Your brother in Islam,
