In keeping with the teachings of Islam and the sanctity of life stressed by our faith, we categorically reject any unjust or violent ideology or actions by any individuals, groups or states against any life, resources or property regardless of reason or rationale.
We deplore and condemn any group or ideologies claiming to be Muslims or representing Islam, whose actions are fundamentally contradictory to the very basic tenets of Islam. We reject these ideologies. People who subscribe to these ideologies are criminals who should be brought to justice.
We are very concerned for the safety and security of our families, our neighbors & neighborhoods, and our country. As law-abiding citizens, we, as individuals and as a group, would continue every effort to ensure security for all and safety from all acts of terrorism, domestic or otherwise.
We are extremely concerned at the tone and content of the political rhetoric that has already created a discriminatory and very negative picture of Muslims and Islam, promoting Islamophobia that has resulted in many acts of violence against innocent law abiding Muslims. This is against our constitutionally guaranteed rights, traditions and policies.
We expect and urge all political parties, aspiring lawmakers, presidential candidates and our government officials to take corrective and conciliatory actions and reject any unjust actions and/or policies.
Our country is a pluralistic society with many faiths and ideologies. While we may respectfully disagree, we promote a policy of education, tolerance and acceptance. Knowledge empowers, removes fear, and promotes justice; whereas ignorance leads to powerlessness, breeds fear and hatred and promotes injustice.
We promote positive engagements in civil and social voluntary activities benefiting the society at large but specifically the poor, hungry and homeless; including the refugees.
We pray to the All-Merciful God, to guide our leaders and give them the courage to make the right decisions by standing up against injustice and hatred and by promoting equality and freedom for all. For this is what America was founded on.
May God Bless America and The World.
