You are here: Home THANK YOU TO OUR FELLOW Citizens & AMERICANS;
We invite you to Join us at our Next Open House & Thank you to all our fellow Americans (neighbors & well wishers) who have called, emailed and visited us to express concern and solidarity with our community during these uncertain times. (see samples below).
WE NOW.. We now extend our heartfelt support to the Jewish Community
who are experiencing their own wave of Anti Jewish sentiment with Jewish graves being desecrated (Philly) and threats being made in Jewish schools and more (Nationwide).
We now also extend our condolences to the many American families who have lost a loved one simply because of their belief system, heritage, orientation, accent or color of their skin as has just happened to the American (Indian) family in Kansas (whose member was a software engineer with dark skin, an accent and who was not a Muslim). ALL THIS IS NOT AMERICAN BEHAVIOR NOR is it Christian, Muslim, Jewish or any other BELIEF IN GOD based inspired behavior. To us ALL Colors, All Faiths, All Creatures and All Lives MATTER.
We also send out many kudos of gratefulness to the fellow American who got shot as he tried to stop the shooter in the Kansas incident.
THIS UNSELFISH ACT REFLECTS SOLID AMERICAN VALUES
Our open house is usually held on the first Sunday of each month from 10-11am - ALL ARE WELCOME especially YOU if you do not know us firsthand. Please break bread with us!!! We invite you to email us to request a private group tour (usually done on a Sunday morning). You can also see us on our live stream 24/7.
FYI: Fairfax County Police have informed us that they have increased surveillance to our area. Additionally our campus has CCTV 24/7.
if you see ANY SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR....
....We are are requesting that you call 911 IMMEDIATELY DO NOT ENGAGE TROUBLE SEEKERS!!! Always BE ALERT, Please RECORD OR TAKE PICTURES of suspicious acts ONLY IF IT IS SAFE TO DO SO
BUT CALL 911 FIRST
WE ASK GOD TO BLESS AMERICA where we as Muslims (despite all that is happening to and around us) are still living in the best functioning Democracy on Earth which guarantees rights and protections under the Constitution that can be enforced through the courts. We may with each other disagree on policy and we may have to get the courts to decide for us yet we do all this is a democratic peaceful way AND all along we are and remain ONE America
We Say that This TOO WILL PASS as we believe that GOD (Surah 103) is with those who are believe in GOD, who are patient, who do good deeds, who join together with others to speak the truth - we also believe (Surah 13 Verse 11) that GOD (arabic "Allah') will not improve the condition of a people unless they strive to improve themselves (by not being ungrateful and disobedient to GOD and by doing more good deeds to all and by committing less sinful acts...).
Sampling of Actual Well Wisher Comments: ****Dear Neighbors, I am deeply concerned with the threats and harassment that the members of your congregation have been subjected to. As a neighbor of yours, I'd like to offer my loving support and assistance if your mosque or congregants were to need my assistance. Please just email me and I'll do everything in my power to be there for you. Fairfax 22124
Hello, I am reaching out to you today in hopes that you are well. My name is XXX and I am a XX year old nurse. I have been alarmed by the recent executive orders being passed by the president, and I want to do everything I can to help my local Muslim community, though I am not Muslim myself. Please let me know if I can donate my time or skills to help, I am not sure what your current needs are but please let me know how I can best help you. Thank you for your time and take care! Fairfax VA
****Dear Muslim Neighbors: My family and I just wanted to send you warm wishes today. We are non-Muslims but want you to know how much we treasure and value our Muslim friends and neighbors. We stand in solidarity with you today and always. We will be bringing our children to your next open house. Thank you for all that you do for our community. Best wishes, The CCC Family Fairfax 22033
****I want to express my sincere disgrace at the actions of our President and his close followers. I am so sorry for how this racism must be hurting your community. My sister in Boston toured a mosque recently, in an attempt by the mosque to reach out to the community. If you ever offer such a program, please let me know, Vienna VA
****I want you to know that this America is also YOUR America. Do not live in fear or let hateful people overcome you. Remember that a minority of people voted for trump and if we did not have this weird Electoral College he would not be president. Please share with your members that most people are of good will. I will do everything I can to keep this country true to the ideals of religious freedom and will push to stop hate. Be at Peace
****I can’t imagine the stress and harassment your community has endured. It is not what this country is about. I am committed to being an activist for social justice and religious freedom. This new government does not represent the majority of Americans. We will fight. Be strong. One love, Lorton VA
****I am writing in support of your community and commit myself and resources to defend freedom of religion. As a spiritual person who supports justice and fairness, the current dialogue and targeting of refugees is unacceptable. Fairfax VA
