Assalam Alaikum Dear Sisters and Brothers,

This 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.

ICNA 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 or color.

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. 

Thank you,

Your brother in Islam, 

Javaid Siddiqi
President, ICNA
