ICNA calls upon all persons of conscience to help stop the bloodshed in Syria

WASHINGTON DC (August 23, 2013) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is calling for a day of du’a (prayer) for Syria and Egypt on Friday, August 23, 2013.

With new credible reports of the use of chemical weapons against its own people the Syrian regime has gone beyond all limits. More than 100,000 men, women and children have lost their lives in pursuit of freedom and the desire to be free from tyranny.
ICNA calls upon the UN to carry out its mandate to investigate and report on the alleged use of chemical weapons against a civilian population. Regardless of the outcome of the investigations the UN must use its full resources to bring about an end to the bloodshed and the growing refugee crisis. According to UN statistics by year’s end there will be an estimated 3.5 million refugees displaced due to the Asad regime’s war against his own people.
The President of ICNA, Naeem Baig said, “Everyday the situation is deteriorating and every day we watch the carnage on our screens. If nothing else we must make du’a (prayers) as a community to amplify the call for the bloodshed to stop.” As part of its campaign for social justice and human rights, ICNA seeks to make aware and educate religious faith communities and the public at large of the dire situation in Syria and its effects on us all.
ICNA also calls upon the US administration to use America’s leadership in the world to spearhead an effective international campaign to end the killing in Syria. It would be a hypocrisy to end the violence in Libya while letting the bloodshed fester in Syria.
ICNA calls upon all persons of conscience to help stop the bloodshed in Syria by calling:
The Secretary-General of the UN H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon at 212-963-123463-1234)
The Whitehouse (202-456-1111) or the State Department(202-647-4000)

  1. You’ve rushed to a conclusion in your article that the Assad government is responsible for the use of chemical weapons. In addition, you have chosen to overlook the duplicitous role that the UN blocs have played in arming the regime in Syria, thus fueling bloodshed, instead of exploring a political solution. What about the role that the rebels themselves have played in rejecting a political solution. You also make the assumption that the Assad government cares nothing about the people of Syria but the rebels who have rejected all attempts at a political solution care about the Syrian people. May Allah have mercy on our souls.

  2. It appears that ICNA is supporting Al Qaeda and other gangs of terrorists killing and cannibalizing people. These people commit such acts of inhuman violence and put them on youtube. Your funding must be coming from the master mind of Muslim terrorism — the great Saudi Arabia.

  3. Only pray will help in this matter? or ICNA has to do something more?
    The crisis, killings, destruction and havoc in Syria, Egypt, Libya and several other Muslim lands are being carried out by the Jihadi terrorists, Muslim extremists and their protectors, supporters and financiers, and they are Muslims too. ICNA should stand up and voiced their concern to these terrorists, who are carrying out this anti-Muslim and anti-Islam Jihads.

  4. This is the du’a of prophets Ibrahim and Isma’il (as)
    2:129 Our Lord! Send amongst them a messenger of their own, who shall rehearse Thy signs to them and instruct them in scripture and wisdom, and purify them; for Thou art the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
    Rabbanaa, wab’athu fiihim rasuula minhum; yatlu ‘alayhim ayaatika wa yu’alimuhumul kitaba wal hikmatan; wa yuzakkiihim. Innaka antal ‘azizul hakim.
    رَبَّنَا وَابْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولاً مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ العَزِيزُ الحَكِيمُ {129}

  5. Ya allah, protect the innocent all around the world, especially in Syria, Egypt, Burma, and Palestine. Ameen. We know not who the ‘real’ oppressor is. Ya Allah, you know everything of the seen and the unseen. You know the hidden and the apparent. Please punish the wrongdoers and rescue the victims, and forgive all of us for our inability to stop the oppression. Ameen.
