ICO Strongly Condems Paris Attacks

Islamic Center of Orlando strongly condemns the attacks in Paris. ICO extends heartfelt prayers and condolences to the people of France and to the families of those murdered. We stand with the world in strongly condemning these criminal, barbaric, cowardly attacks on the innocent lives.

We continue to be shocked and pained by these futile, savage attacks against humanity. The Almighty is merciful and has placed more good and love in the world than not, together, united upon that inherent goodness and love we can reduce these small worlds of hate and evil.

As Muslims, we reaffirm our belief, as emphasized in the Quran, that whoever kills one life, it is as if they have killed all of humanity, and whoever saves even one life, it is as if they have saved all of humanity (Chapter 5: Verse 32)

Yet Another Reason Why Educating Americans on Islam is so Important

This video is a shining example of how someone who had immense hatred of Islam had a change of heart after learning about Islam and Muslims. It is ignorance about Islam and Muslims in the mainstream American society that is feeding hatred towards Muslims. This is why I re-emphasize the absolute necessity on each of us to fulfill the duty of Dawa to those around us. It is only by educating people about Islam that we can bring about a change in the way Islam and Muslims are perceived in America. There is no doubt that this is the most pressing need of the hour.

Note: At ICO there is a weekly "Dawa Open House" each Wednesday at 6:30. Bring your non Muslims friends to the Open House. We have had over 20 people become practicing Muslims in this class over the past year.

Another Youth Achieved the Noble Feat of Completing the Memorization of the Quran

Al Hamdulillah, yet another student at Darul Hifz, the Quran school at ICO, completed the memorization of the Book of Allah. Umar Faridy, 15 years old is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Ahmed Faridy. From start to finish it took him approximately 3 years to achieve this noble feat. He accomplished the memorization of Quran along with excelling in his academics. May Allah protect him.

The "Khatm Quran" ceremony for Umar Faridy will take place on Friday, June 5th after Maghrib Salah at the Jama Masjid. The ceremony is an open event and everyone is invited to attend.
