AICP Condemns Terrorist Attack on New Zealand Mosques

AICP Press Release – AICP Condemns Terrorist Attack on New Zealand Mosques

AICP has issued the following press release pertaining to the sad and heinous incident in New Zealand:

We are deeply shocked to receive news of the callous terrorist attack which targeted people praying in two-mosques in New Zealand, today, Friday the 15th of March 2019.

It has been reported that numerous people were killed in a mass shooting, when an armed gunman opened fire during the Friday congregational prayer at two locations in the city of Christchurch.

According to police reports, three men and a woman have been taken into police custody, along with the discovery of explosives attached to a number of vehicles.

We strongly condemn these heinous acts of violence which only serve to cause division and disunity and disrupt the safety and security of the country. We hope that the New Zealand authorities will swiftly apprehend any remaining terrorist criminals who remain at large so they can receive the punishment that they deserve.

We also urge the Muslim community in the United States to remain vigilant and to fully cooperate with Police and authorities during their investigations.

We also advise them to remain calm and resist any provocation which will only serve the interests of the terrorists who wish to cause hate and division within the larger Muslim community.

AICP expresses its deep sympathy and stands in solidarity with the people, government and Muslim community of New Zealand, offering its heartfelt condolences to the families of the innocent who were killed, and wishes the injured a speedy recovery.

AICP strives to implement the teachings of Islam as per the guidance of the Qur’an and as practiced by those who adhere to the methodology of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Our center is open for all members of the community during these difficult times.

جمعية المشاريع الخيرية الإسلامية في الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية تستنكر وترفض هجمات الفتنة على مسجدين في نيوزلندا

أصدرت جمعية المشاريع الخيرية الإسلامية في الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية البيان الاستنكاري الآتي:

ببالغ الصدمة تلقينا نبأ العملية الإرهابية التي استهدفت المصلين في مسجدين في نيوزلندا اليوم الجمعة. وقُتل “العديد” من الأشخاص بإطلاق نار استهدف مسجدين خلال صلاة الجمعة في مدينة كرايست تشيرش النيوزيلندية، في موقعين، الأول في مسجد بشارع دينز والثاني في مسجد آخر بشارع لينوود. بحسب ما أفادت الشرطة، التي أكدت أنها اعتقلت 3 رجال وامرأة، وأنه تم العثور على متفجرات داخل مركبات.

وإننا إذ ندين بشدة هذه الأعمال البشعة الشنيعة نعتبر أن مثل هذه الأعمال الإجرامية التي تستهدف الفتنة وزعزعة الأمن وهز استقرار البلاد لا تصب في مصلحة المجتمع النيوزلندي بمختلف أطيافه.

ونأمل أن تتوصل السلطات النيوزلندية إلى الإرهابيين المجرمين حتى ينالوا جزاءهم وأن تقطع دابرهم .

داعين في الوقت نفسه الجالية الإسلامية في نيوزلندا بالتنبه إلى هذا الأمر الخطير وأن يتعاونوا مع الشرطة المحلية لدرء الفتنة وعدم الانجرار إلى ما يريده المتطرفون من زرع الفتنة بين المجتمع النيوزلندي.

إن جمعية المشاريع الخيرية الإسلامية في الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية تعبر لحكومة وشعب نيوزلندا، والجالية الإسلامية خاصة عن بالغ تعاطفها وتضامنها ولأسر وذوي الشهداء الأبرياء عن خالص العزاء والمواساة ومتمنية الشفاء العاجل للمصابين.

AICP's Press Release Regarding the Announcement of Jerusalem as Capital of the Jewish State

PRESS RELEASE:

Announcement of Jerusalem as Capital of the Jewish State Inflames Tensions in the Middle East

In response to news reports regarding President Trump's intent to announce Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State, and the plans to relocate the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects has put out the following:

The Holy City of Jerusalem has been, and will continue to be, the Arab capital of our beloved Palestine and one of the most revered cities in Islam. It is therefore above politicization, and certainly above being used as a chess piece for political gain or as a media distraction.

Muhammad Ali

The Association of Islamic Charitable Projects sends its condolences to the family of Muhammad Ali. Whether inside the ring fighting top-ranked boxers, or outside the ring fighting social injustice, and later in his life, Parkinson’s disease, Muhammad Ali fought fearlessly.

In 1967-- in the prime of his boxing career-- Muhammad Ali was stripped of his heavy-weight crown for his refusal to be inducted into the draft and go to Vietnam to kill people who never caused him any harm. Muhammad Ali, rather, chose to be a vocal opponent of the prevalent racism here in America. After several years of appealing his case in court, Muhammad Ali was once again allowed to box, and a few years later, he regained the heavy-weight crown from George Foreman.

Muhammad Ali, in spite of his growing notoriety, remained a “people’s champ.” His very presence was inspiring. He was inspiring, for he was an athlete who expressed the sentiments of the disadvantaged and oppressed, and Muhammad Ali was willing to sacrifice his career on the basis of moral principles. Many of us could take lessons from that.

We supplicate to Allah to grant his family and the country the patience over the passing away of Muhammad Ali. Indeed we belong to Allah and to Allah we shall return.


Calling All Muslims to Unite Against Extremism

On behalf of the AICP communities worldwide, we extend our deep condolences to the families of the victims in Egypt.

AICP has been warning against extreme and misguided ideologies for decades. The Wahhaby and ‎the socalled Muslim Brotherhood ideologies are among the most ‎dangerous and misguided groups that terrorize our world today.

Once again, we call on all Muslims to unite against extremism by learning the authentic creed to differentiate between the true teachings of our religion and extremism. Our centers are open worldwide. Let us work together to rid our nation from the dangers of misguided ideologies.

May Allah grant the Muslims in Egypt the patience to endure this calamity and protect them from the evil of terrorism.

Denouncement

"Once again, the monstrous hands of terrorism have targeted Europe to jeopardize peace and terrorize the nations harming hundreds of people along their way.

The Association of Islamic Charitable Projects, AICP, denounces these outrageous attacks that harm Muslims and non-Muslims alike. We deeply sympathize with the families of the victims and offer our deep condolences.

By the will of God, France shall stand strong in the face of terror and defeat those who damage the reputation of our religion. We urge Muslims to learn the authentic Islamic teachings of the religion and teach it to their children and others diligently as a viable way of combatting the dogma of extremism.

The AICP community highlights that Islam is a religion of moderation and wisdom and fully stands against such heinous crimes that can only occur as a result of ignorance about the rules of the religion.”
