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.

Imam Yahya Hendi’s statement regarding the Bombings of the London on the 7th of July

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my deepest sympathy for the Citizens of the United Kingdom and the world for the loss of many of its innocent sons and daughters due to the barbaric brutal cruelty, murder and terror bombings that rocked London’s public transportation on the 7th of July.

Such acts of terror betray the very great values that have to shape our relationships as members in the human family. The massacre of innocent people will serve no cause except the cause of divisive voices of evil and must fully be rejected by all people of conscience.

On behalf of all of those with whom I work and serve here in the USA or worldwide, I extend my sincere condolences to the families who have suffered in this tragedy and pray for patience and protection of our human family.

I call on my fellow Muslims to adhere to the value of the human life as revealed to us in the Holy Qur’an and as taught to us by Prophet Muhammad. Muhammad said: “None of you truly believes till he wishes for his fellow human what he wishes for himself.” We all must speak with one voice to empower the voiceless and offer shelter to homeless irrespective of geopolitical, ethnic or religious background. We, Muslims must reject any form of violence in the name of our great religion of peace, Islam.

I also call upon all human beings to join those Muslims interested in promoting universal values and common good. Our objective must be of three folds: Politics of justice, economics of equity and covenant of community.

Now is our chance as members in one human family to unite in our efforts to confront violence and build peace for the planet with which The Almighty Almighty entrusted us.
