Julia Medina is a US passport holding US citizen, but CBP detained her at the border for 32 hours without her parents. She is 9 years old. Ask yourself why she was detained. CBP’s answer- the 9 year old was lying about her identity, even though she presented valid photo ID. These are the kind of systemic problems that the Administration should be focusing on, such as better technology, identification and identity confirmation capabilities, and better trained staff. #nobannowall #nowall #defundice #defundhate #getoutraged #immigrationlawyer #immigrationreform #immigration #cbp #immigrants ...

Feeling honored to have the opportunity to pray the Janaza (funeral) prayer for the #50lives murdered in #christchurch at the holiest place in Islam - the Kaba in the Holy City of Makkah. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims from around the world stood together after Jumuah prayer, exactly one week later, to pray for the 50 shuhada (martyrs) of the #christchurchshooting.

As the Imam of Masjid al-Haram announced the Funeral prayer for the martyrs of New Zealand, my heart jumped. I could feel the pain of those lost ripple through thousands. As my loved ones stood at Jumuah prayer in a place of safety, a place of worship. I could feel the connectedness of an ummah (community) of 2 billion Muslims standing together, praying for the loss of our brothers and sisters. #weareoneummah

There’s no greater beauty than Nigerians, Syrians, Pakistani, Moroccans, Indonesians, Indians, Saudi, Lebanese, Americans, and humans from around the world worshipping in unison, side by side, yearning for a common goal. We are stronger together, so let’s be conscious of the forces that divide us. #strongertogether #islam #muslim #theycantstopus

Salaam-Peace

These traditional words of Muslim greeting and welcome were the last words that one of the Muslim faithful at the Noor Masjid (Mosque of Light) in Christchurch, New Zealand uttered this past Friday as he stretched out his open hand to Brenton Tarrant, the self-styled fascist and racist, who returned the greeting of peace with a hail of bullets that would end the Muslim man's life and the lives of forty-nine additional worshippers as they gathered for Salahtul Jummah ( Friday Congregational Prayers). A similar attack took place at the same time across the city at the Linwood mosque. In total, forty-nine Muslims (men, women and children) were massacred and over twenty worshippers were injured.

Please join us tomorrow, Sunday March 17, 2019 at 1:00 pm sharp at the Church of the Redeemer located at 36 South Street - Morristown, NJ 07960 when Rev. Cynthia Black, Rabbi Ellie Miller and Imam Saffet A. Catovic will lead members of our communities as we remember the victims and pray for their families and re-commit ourselves to end Anti-Muslim bigotry, Anti-Semitism, Xenophobia and hate in all its forms.

Opened my inbox this morning to see this beautiful message from my dear friend Rabbi Larry Sernovitz of @nafshenusj. It was not too long ago when I sent him a similar message after the Pittsburgh shooting. I recall at a Camden County vigil challenging those who gathered to ask themselves what their response would be if the victims were Muslim. Here we are. In New Zealand, 49 of my Muslim brothers and sisters were brutally murdered in a state of worship by a white male terrorist in an act of extreme terrorism. What will our response be? The victim is Muslim, the terrorist is white. Keep a keen eye on media coverage or lack thereof, popular narrative, community reaction in the form of vigils, interfaith gatherings, or lack thereof, and how we as a nation value human suffering differently. As I journey to the House of God today, I pray for the healing of the loved ones of those who are lost, for Paradise for those lost, and justice for those responsible. God is Just. He places all where it belongs. #standwithnewzealandmuslims #standtogether #westandtogether ... See MoreSee Less
