Innah Lillahi wa Innah Illahi Raji3oon

It is with heavy hearts that we hear about the Fresno shootings by a man who claimed to be doing the killings in the name of Allah. The Islamic Service Center wholeheartedly offers condolences and prayers to the families of the victims. This was a senseless crime, one we condemn strongly. This is not true Islam and we are shocked and saddened that this horrific incident occurred in the name of Allah.

Please join us in making duaa for the families of the victims. May Allah ease their hearts in this terrible tragedy.

To God we belong and to Him we shall return.

It is with great sadness that we hear news of the Coptic church bombings in Egypt on April 9th, 2017. We offer the families of the victims of these bombings sincere condolences and prayers. May God grant them ease in these tragic times.

On behalf of the Islamic Service Center of America, we condemn these bombings and pray that religious tolerance to all minorities are respected. Coexistence on this earth is a fundamental part of being human. We hope that the perpetrators of such heinous crimes are caught as soon as possible.

Please join us in remembering the victims and their families in our prayers and make duaa for a more civilized and humanistic society, that holds the value of life to the highest of standards.
