Statement on the Mass Casualty Suicide Attacks on Churches and Hotels in Sri Lanka

It is with immense sorrow that we awoke to the senseless horror of coordinated suicide attacks on several churches and 5 star hotels in Sri Lanka. On this important religious holiday for Christians, it is very concerning to see this tragedy targeting a faith community and taking the lives of so many innocent people while praying at their places of worship.

We stand in solidarity with our Christian neighbors and condemn this cowardly and barbaric act. Our prayers are for the victims and their families in this tragic time. We mourn with the Sri Lankan people in this national tragedy and hope for a speedy investigation, and that those who carried out such cruelty and carnage will be brought to justice. 

There is never a justification for mass terror incidents targeting innocent civilians. We must realize that we are one human family, and the more division we sow, the more discord we will reap. In this challenging time in our nation and our fragile world, we must likewise insist that intolerance, in all its forms, be condemned and challenged so that this tide of violence does not destroy the moral fabric of society at large.

Sincerely,
Maher Hussein,
ICCNY Board President

Assalamu Alaikom Wa Rahmat Allah Wa Barakatuh
 
Dear Members of the ICCNY Community. Today is the first day of Shaban 

أحاديث شهر شعبان

 

1- عن عائشة رضي الله عنها، قالت: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ” يصوم حتى نقول: لا يفطر، ويفطر حتى نقول: لا يصوم، فما رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم استكمل صيام شهر إلا رمضان، وما رأيته أكثر صياماً منه في شعبان ” رواه البخاري ومسلم.

 

2- عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: “كان أحب الشهور إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أن يصومه شعبان ثم يصله برمضان” رواه أبو داود وصححه الألباني.

 

3- عن أم سلمة رضي الله عنها قالت: «ما رأيت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يصوم شهرين متتابعين إلا شعبان ورمضان» رواه الترمذي وصححه الألباني.

 

4- عن أسامة بن زيد رضي الله عنه قال: قلت: يا رسول الله، لم أرك تصوم شهراً من الشهور ما تصوم من شعبان، قال: «ذلك شهر يغفل الناس عنه بين رجب ورمضان، وهو شهر ترفع فيه الأعمال إلى رب العالمين، فأحب أن يرفع عملي وأنا صائم» رواه النسائي وحسنه الألباني.

 اللهم بلغنا رمضان
