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.

If one were to believe morning news and the pictures of the recent events in the Middle East, one would have to conclude that we are at the dawn of a clash of religions and civilizations....

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

With ongoing violence sapping the spirits of Israelis and Palestinians, and with the Iraq war generating shock waves throughout the Middle East, we call on our fellow Jews and Muslims to join forces with concerned Christians to transcend this cycle of death and destruction.

Imam Hendi condemns the assassination of Bhutto.
December 28, 2007

Dear sisters and brothers,

Assalamu Aalikum.

The Almighty One decreed that he who murders one person it will be as if he has killed all of humanity. Consequently, I wanted to offer my condolences to our Pakistani sisters and brothers and to the world for the senseless murder of Mrs. Benazir Bhutto.

I, and with all my power, speak against this murder considering it a crime and a sin. I do believe that this is not away by which people can solve their differences. Violence is NEVER the way and there is not justified reason for it, never and ever.

The Muslim world must resort to democracy. It must show once and again that they do actually and in action have respect for the dignity of all people and for human right or it will not deserve the respect it is asking for. The Muslim world has no other choice but to respect the role and the rule of law in its lands or, otherwise, it will die.

Because I love my faith, I urge all Muslim to take a stand once and for all for peace, human rights, freedom, dialogue and against violence in all its forms whether against Muslims or other than Muslims.

The Almighty One calls on us to honor one another, respect one another and listen to one another. The Almighty One wants us to plant peace, build bridges and make friends. God is on the side of those who make peace and He blesses those who make peace and not war.

So, let us all use this sad moment to ensure that we all become source of hope and peace.

Remember that there is no ocean love can not dive in, there is no wall love can not bring down, there is no war love can not end and there is no house love can not build.

May God be with us all.

Was-salaam.

Imam Yahya Hendi

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.

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

JOHN F. KENNEDY: The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.

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.
