Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia

Earlier this month, the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) called on the Canadian government to designate Jan 29 as a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia as Canadian Muslim communities are still reeling from the devastating terrorist attack in Quebec last January that claimed the lives of six Muslim men worshipping in their mosque and gravely injured many others. It was an unprecedented attack that left a Canadian place of worship – a sacred sanctuary – a scene of unimaginable carnage. 


This call is based on precedent. Every December 6th, there is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women to mark the anniversary of the 1989 shooting massacre of 14 women at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal. 

Alhamdulillah, January 29th city council meeting, Brantford City Council has officially recognized January 29th as the Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia, commemorating the attack on the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec in Quebec City in 2017.

Imam's Message

Assalamu Alaikum Brothers and Sisters in Islam, 

There’s this weird notion that new plans and habits gotta start on the 1st day of the year, in New Year. That’s how many people ended 2017 and started 2018...counting down to a “new page”. But is that how it works? Like a reset button? What makes you on Dec 31 different from you on Jan 1? Please know that it’s not the calendar date that determines our willingness, drive, and ability to accomplish goals and dreams. It’s us. Do we have clarity on what we want 2018 to look like or are you setting goals based on what’s trending on Facebook?

 

Do you have the systems in place to get you there or are you going about it haphazardly?

 

Here is the solution: Follow the Prophet and Find Balance


Some people think that the harder they drive themselves in fulfilling religious duties, the higher the position they will achieve in God's eyes. Yet Islam does not require people to overstrain themselves, as it steers a middle way. Indeed, it is referred to, in some religious texts as "the middle way". The Prophet's (peace be upon him) practical example shows that he understood this and put it into practice. Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reports:

Whenever the Prophet was given a choice between two options, he would choose the easier, unless it be sinful. If it was sinful, he would move furthest away from it. Never did he seek revenge for himself.  (Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.)

The Prophet's character shines as being that of a very modest man who never sought to press an advantage in anyway. At the same time, he was clearly dedicated to his message and would do everything in his power to ensure that people understood it clearly and could see how to put it into practice. He felt for others and would try hard to make it easy for them to understand God's message and implement what He required of them. In his speech during the farewell pilgrimage, for example, he outlined the major principles of Islam. At the end of every point he stressed, he would ask his audience: "Have I delivered God's message?" When they affirmed that he had done, he appealed to God to witness their acknowledgement.

Thus, in 2018, let's make 3 goals. 1) Understand Prophet's message with more wisdom, 2) Translate his messages into actions to our lives and convey them to others with clarity, and 3) Maintain moderation in everything while avoiding extremism 

Jazak-Allah Khair

The Masjid

The masjid is a sanctified area, in which the rewards of prayers in congregation increase 25 to 27 times and where the mercy of Allah descends. It is considered the best of places by the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) relates:

"Masjids are the houses of Allah on the earth. They shine up to the inhabitants of the heavens just as the stars in the sky shine down to the inhabitants of the earth."

A true masjid, in the legal sense, is a place that has been permanently dedicated to Allah for the sake of prayer, recitation, and His remembrance. Any piece of land that has been dedicated permanently for the sake of congregational prayers will also become a proper masjid..
