In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) July 25, 2005.

The Fiqh, Jurisprudence, Council of North America (FCNA) wishes to address the issue of terrorism and how it is viewed in the Islamic legal and ethical system

Islamic law has consistently condemned terrorism and extremism in all forms and under all circumstances, and we reiterate this unequivocal position. Islam strictly condemns religious extremism and the use of violence against innocent lives.

Islam stands clear on issues of Violence against women: No beating of wives and no abuse of women

This statement is declares that domestic violence has no room in Islam what so ever. First of all, it should be clear that the institution of the family in Islam is based on mutual respect, affection, mercy and love. Any form of physical or emotional abuse is prohibited. A husband is not allowed to physically or emotionally harm his wife, and the wife is not allowed to abuse her husband.

Jews, Muslims and Peace, Yehezkel Landau and Yahya Hendi, WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES: CURRENT DIALOGUE Issue 41, July 2003

Imam Yahya Hendi and President Obama

In June of 2008, Imam Yahya Hendi called on Muslims to take President Barak Obama seriously and start a process of dialogue with the West. Now and in 2011, Imam Hendi urges the U.S. Administration to display even-handedness in handling the Mid-East conflict by uniting for peace in the Middle East. Hence, "I pray that President Obama stands for Palestinians right to self-determination and a state. I hope he stands for Palestine to finally take its rightful place among other nations of the world." Imam Hendi declared. Once the USA stood as a potential beacon to the Arab street as the ultimate symbol of the hopes and rewards of democracy. Now it needs to do this by making sure that Palestine becomes a state next to its neighbor Israel before the end of the 2011-year.

Imam Hendi and rabbi Serotta call for peace in the Middle East. Imam Hendi declares that Judaism, Christianity and Islam have more in common than differences:

JOHN F. KENNEDY: If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.
