    Press Release For Immediate Release

    The recent violence against innocent civilians is a call to action for all people of faith to speak with one voice against these senseless acts, and to draw attention to the sanctity of life which every faith tradition emphasizes, including Islam. While the individuals who perpetrated these events may appear to, or in their own perverse way believe that they do this in the name of a religion, their actions do not represent any faith tradition.

    Although a prompt rush to judgment is tempting, these violent events threaten not just those they immediately target but make each of us a victim of mistrust and prejudice which sap the strength of our society and our great nation, and we fear, will beget more hatred and the violence which follows.

    All people of faith who have affixed their names to this statement condemn the violence … in San Bernardino, California and in Savannah, Georgia; in Colorado Springs, Colorado; in Charleston, South Carolina and Paris, France and elsewhere around the world. We pray that the hearts of those who perpetrate such violence will be changed. We join those who work for peace.

    We grieve with the communities which fell victims to this violence and with the families and friends who lost dear ones. When violence takes one of us, we are all wounded. We pray, as one, for those who are injured that they may heal quickly and completely. And we pray for fortitude for all of us, that we may overcome the evil in our midst that threatens the pluralistic nature of our great nation. May God bless us all.

    Pillars of Islam

    Big Image

    What are the five pillars of Islam?

      They are the framework of Muslim life: testimony of faith, prayer, Zakat (charity), fasting, and the pilgrimage to Makkah for those who are able. The prophet said: Islam is based on five principles:

      1. The declaration of faith: To bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is His messenger to all human beings till the Day of Judgment.

      2. Prayers: Muslims perform five prayers a day as a duty towards Allah. Prayers strengthen and enliven the belief in Allah and inspire man to a higher morality. They purify the heart and prevent temptation towards wrongdoing and evil.

      3. Zakat: The literal and simple meaning of Zakat is purity, wealth is purified by paying Zakat. As all things belong to God, wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust. Zakat means giving a specified percentage of ones wealth to certain classes of needy people.

      4. Fasting during the month of Ramadan: Muslims during the month of Ramadan not only abstain from food, drink, and sexual intercourse from dawn to sunset, but also from immoral behavior. Fasting teaches love, sincerity and devotion. It develops a sound social conscience, patience, unselfishness and will-power.

      5. Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca): It is to be performed at least once in a lifetime, by those who are physically and financially able to do so. The Ka'ba, which is in the city of Mecca, is the first house of worship appointed for mankind and was built by Abraham and his son Ishmael (Peace Be Upon Them).

    calendarIslamic Calendar
    The Islamic calendar (or Hijri calendar) is a purely lunar calendar. It contains 12 months that are based on the motion of the moon, and because 12 synodic months is only 12 x 29.53=354.36 days, the Islamic calendar is consistently shorter than a tropical year, and therefore it shifts with respect to the Christian calendar.
