Hadith of the Week:

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:

“A man said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I do a good deed, then others find out about it and that pleases me.’ He said: ‘You will have two rewards, the reward for doing it in secret and the reward for doing it openly (so that others may follow your example).’”Vol. 5, Book 37, Hadith 4226

WNY Muslims Press Release:  

WNY MUSLIMS STANDS WITH THE VICTIMS OF  THE  COWARDLY TALIBAN ATTACK ON STUDENTS AND TEACHERS IN PESHAWAR

Buffalo, NY –  As the backlash for successfully fighting terrorism,  Pakistan has again suffered a horrific terror attack today. A place of learning and sanctuary  has been violated as  four gunmen  entered the university and opened fire on students and teachers who had gathered for a peaceful poetry recital to commemorate the death anniversary of the leader whom the school is named after. 

This is a grave violation of the fundamentals and principals of Islam. True to his virtue, a chemistry lecturer,  Syed Hamid Husain, shot back at the gunmen to allow his students to flee, before he was killed himself. 

We pray for peace all around the world. Our hearts go out to all the families and loved ones of the victims of this attack that has claimed 19 lives so far. It is a strong and bitter reminder of the attack that was carried out in Peshawar when 130 students at a school in the city of Peshawar, 50km (30 miles) from Charsadda, were killed in 2014. 

The Taliban's assault on education and awareness cannot be tolerated. This struggle shall continue until the forces of ignorance and extremism are defeated by awareness, tolerance, and peace.
