ISNA Remembers Victims of 9/11
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was a co-sponsor of the Annual 9/11 Unity Walk on Sunday, September 8. People of many faiths walked together, reminding one another of the importance of unity among people of faith against violence and hate, and reconfirming the principles of love and understanding among all people.
ISNA and Muslim Americans across the country remember with heavy hearts the loss of life of over 3,000 Americans of all faiths and persuasions including over 300 Muslims. Those who perpetrated this crime now know that America's resolve and resilience are greater than their violent outbursts driven by their extremist ideology.
We grieve for lives lost and pray for those who are left behind to mourn. We also pray that those who are bent on doing harm to our homeland realize that they have achieved nothing, and can achieve nothing, for their own people, unless they abandon their extremist ideology and truly understand and practice Islam as the religion of moderation and peace that it is.
Imam Mohamed Magid, President
Islamic Society of North America
