Winnipeg Muslim Leaders Statement condemning heinous crimes of ISIS

The Muslim Leaders of Winnipeg have issued a statement condemning the recent heinous crimes of ISIS against the minority groups in Iraq. 

For Immediate Release August 10, 2014

Statement from Muslim Leaders in Manitoba

We, the undersigned Muslim leaders in Winnipeg, unconditionally declare the actions of ISIS an affront to our faith, and we forcefully condemn any attempts by ISIS to associate their heinous crimes to Islam and to our prophetic tradition.

Islam has made it incumbent on Muslims under Islamic law to protect religious minorities within their countries and grant freedom of religion, security of life, honour, property and intellect to all citizens regardless of race, religion and gender. We are therefore anguished at how Christians and other religious minorities are suffering at the hands of our co-religionists in today's conflict-ridden world.

We urge and pray that Muslim religious leaders and politicians around the world will continue to speak up and take strong and definitive actions against criminals and terrorists who are committing atrocities in the name of our faith.

We, here in Winnipeg, are blessed to practice our faith in its true spirit and to live in peace and harmony with all our fellow Canadians, regardless of religious background, culture and ideology In this spirit we offer our sincere and humble apology to our Christian and Yazidi brothers and sisters for the pain these misguided Muslims have caused them. Please know that we stand in solidarity with you and with all the persecuted people around the world.

May the Merciful Creator bless entire humanity with peace and justice and relief from oppression. (Ameen).

DONATE for RAMADAN IFTARS at WCM - Zubaidah Tallab Foundation


Dear community members
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu

Our beloved prophet (PBUH) told us "whosoever breaks the fast of a Muslim will receive their (fasting) reward without an iota less".
The Zubaidah Tallab Foundation will again carry the tradition of sponsoring most Iftar days in Winnipeg Central Mosque this year and requests anybody who would like to donate money for the Iftar Saim to please do so. On average 130-150 people break the fast during weekdays and upwards of 250 during weekends. The charity anticipates that it will sponsor 25 days of Iftar this year. 
It will cost around $4 per fasting person/per day. In other words if you donate only $4, Inshallah ,you will receive the reward of fasting a whole day in Ramadan. If you donate $120, Inshallah, it is like fasting 30 additional days of Ramadan. It is this easy. Please contact [email protected] or 204-223-6789 if you are interested in donating. 
Your brother,

Hussain Guisti
General Manager/CFO
Zubaidah Tallab Foundation

Note: The Charity sponsored 20 days last year, 23 days in 2012, 24 days in 2011, 21 days in 2010, 25 days in 2009, 25 days in 2008 and 24 days in 2007.
