National Day of Prayer and Remembrance

(September 14, 2001)

(Imam, The Islamic Society of North America)

 

الحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة والسلام على جميع الأنبياء والمرسلين

 

In the Name of God, most gracious, most merciful.

Lord, you said and your words are true:

 

If any do seek for glory and power, to God belong all glory and power. To Him mount up all words of purity. He exalts all righteous deeds. But those that lay the plots of evil, for them is a terrible penalty; and the plotting of such shall not abide. (The QurĠan, Fatir 35:10)

Goodness and evil are not equal. Repel the evil with the good. Then will he between whom and you was hatred become as it were your friend and intimate. But no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and restraint, none but persons of the greatest good fortune. (The QurĠan, Fussilat 41: 34-35)

We turn to you, our Lord, at this time of pain and grief in our nation. We witness the evil of destruction and the suffering of the many of our people before our eyes. With broken and humble hearts and with tears in our eyes, we turn to You, our Lord, to give us comfort. Help in our distress, keep us together as people of diverse faiths, colors and races, keep our country strong for the sake of good and righteousness, and protect us from all evil. Ameen.
