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.

She did not appear as a woman (more...)

Together, Marching for PEACE in the Middle East. Almost every day, we wake up with sad news coming to us from the Middle East. We hear of homes being destroyed in or around Jerusalem and women and children being killed. The Land once inhabited or witnessed by Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad has turned into a sea of blood.

ANNE WILSON SCHAEF: Differences challenge assumptions

JEROME NATHANSON: The price of the democratic way of life is a growing appreciation of people's differences, not merely as tolerable, but as the essence of a rich and rewarding human experience.

JIMMY CARTER: We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.

BLAISE PASCAL: Do you wish people to think well of you? Don't speak well of yourself.

CONFUCIUS: Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
