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.

 
A call for dialogue

Imam Yahya Hendi


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 on the Pope's Speech:

September 15, 2006

 

I hope that the impact of the interfaith work built by the late Pope John Paul II does not fade away after the statements made by Pope Benedict XVI in his most recent speech in Germany. The bridges built over the course of the last 40 years between Catholics and Muslims must not be brought down as a result of that speech. Despite my sadness to hear those statements uttered, I still call on both sides to continue to engage in real and lasting dialogue to bring about peace to this world. The success of our fight on religious extremism, terrorism, poverty, sectarianism and the war culture depends on our ability to be sensitive to each others beliefs, respect of each others traditions and our ability to coordinate in the work of socio-economic and political justice.  

 

The great spread of Islam around the world is attributed, not to the shedding of blood and violence, which is incompatible with the nature of the peaceful God according to Islam. Rather, it can historically be attributed to Islamís very nature of universality, cohesiveness and call for reasoning and strong relationship between rationality, science and faith.

 

I call on all sides involved to heed to the voice of reasoning, love and commitment to true universal brotherhood and sisterhood. I ask Muslims to engage their Christian neighbors rationally and with love and I ask Christians to reach out to their Muslims fellow citizens with a word of comfort and care. After all, Islam is a religion of Peace and Jesus Christ is the prince of peace.

 

United we stand and divided we fall and fail.

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.
