Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil

In the name of God, the all Compassionate, the all Merciful

“Whoever killed a human being, except as a punishment for murder or other wicked crimes, should be looked upon as though he killed all mankind; and that whoever saved a human life should be regarded as though he has saved all mankind.” (Qur’an 5:32)

Ithna-asheri Muslim Association of the Northwest (IMAN) unequivocally condemns all acts of terror and violence against innocent civilians, committed by anyone, anywhere. Our condemnation and denouncement of the horrific mass killings in many parts of the world, including Middle East, Asia, Europe, Africa, and most recently here in our country, USA cannot possibly express the pain and anguish of all upstanding citizens of the world.

It is especially painful and shocking for our community when perpetrators of such heinous crimes claim to be Muslims. As we stand united with our fellow American citizens in these tragic times, we pray that power of faith in common humanity and compassion prevail over fear and suspicion that has given rise to Islamophobia in parts of our country.

Muharram 1437 Program at IMAN


As the month of Muharram 1437 approaches, millions of Muslims around the world will begin to remember and fervently relive the sacrifice of Imam Husain (A) through the religious services (majalis) of Ashura. The martyrs of Ashura did not die in vain; their sacrifice and memory live within the hearts of millions of people worldwide. They are beacons of true martyrs and comforters to our own personal struggles. Muharram 1437 is expected to begin on Thursday October 15th, 2015. There will be daily programs at IMAN starting on Wednesday October 14th through October 25th. We are in need of volunteers to help out with the various tasks to make the Muharram program successful.
