Central PA Muslim Community’s response to the targeted Police shootings in Harrisburg on 12/22/2017

Author ISGH PA Web Admin    Category Announcements     Tags

In the Quran, before emphasizing any point, God introduces Himself as Mercy three times and throughout enjoins being merciful to our fellow man – the acts of Friday night (12/22/17) go against any sense of mercy. We, the Central PA Muslim Community, are absolutely horrified and sickened by the targeting of those who serve to protect us each day. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us and we will never stand for violence against those who are innocent.

We pray and hope that the injured officer makes a speedy and complete recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.

The teachings of Islam are very clear in condemning violence and ensuring respect of authority of the land, no matter where one lives. And while we could cite any number of reasons why this goes against Islam, the truth is any society should reject lawlessness and murder in all its forms. For these reasons, we stand with our fellow central Pennsylvanians and brave officers, and stand ready to assist however we can. Our city’s resilience and unity are stronger than any who seeks to attack and divide us.

2018 Annual Dawah Cup – Winter Sports Schedule

Author ISGH PA Web Admin    Category Announcements, Events     Tags


The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, commands us saying: “Teach your children swimming, archery and horse-riding.” This direct call to practice sports shows the great importance Islam places on sports in training the Muslims and making their bodies healthy and sound. Islam sanctions anything that is pure and beneficial for man. It encourages a Muslim to be strong and to seek the means of strength.
