Men In Islam

Remembering those who lost their lives.


Assalaamu Alaikum,

On Tuesday September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were hit by a total of three commercial airplanes and a fourth crashed in Pennsylvania due to the heroism of the passengers on board.  The consensus is that it was done by terrorists.  Because of this many American Muslims and Muslims in general have been blamed because of their belief in Islam.

First, I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the families of this horrendous tragedy.  I sat in shock and dismay and then anger that anyone could do such a unimaginable act.  Now just a little over a week has gone by and I am still trying to take it all in.

Second, as has been stated by many, many Muslims this is not acceptable in Islam.  The word Jihad has been so grossly misunderstood and perverted by the media.  Please check this page for a full explanation of Jihad:  Jihad

Terrorism is a horrible act no matter who does it.  It is incumbent upon our leaders to use wisdom and restraint in responding to this act of terror. 

It is incumbent upon us as citizens not to jump to conclusions and not to let bigotry pull us apart.  I urge all Americans to use wisdom and restraint in this matter.  I was born an American but I chose to be Muslim and I condemn this act regardless of who is responsible and I want to see them brought to justice.  Insha' Allah (God willing) this will be done.

Everything is by the will of Allah and it is in Allah we must put our trust.

Below are a list of links and information on this terrible tragedy.
