ICB Condemns Attacks against Innocent Civilians in both Pakistan and Kenya

The brutal massacre of innocent people in a Kenyan shopping mall and the killing of worshippers in Pakistan has been globally condemned by Muslims. More than 75 Christians were killed by suicide bombers as they were exiting a church in the northwestern province of Pakistan. In Kenya, gunmen took over a mall and killed scores of innocent people.

It is very unfortunate that these cowards in an attempt to glorify Islam have violated the core principals of Islam that every life is sacred and judgement is the right of only Allah and Allah alone.

It has been clearly narrated in Quran:
"Whoever kills a soul unless for [punishment of taking] a life or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely." (Quran 5:32)

Update on Flood Damage

Last week's devastating floods have wreaked havoc in the lives of many residents of Boulder county. We offer our condolences to those who have experienced tragic losses.

ICB has had its hands full with the devastation of the flood. The basement of the mosque was flooded heavily, which resulted in extensive damage to flooring, wall and contents. The estimated damage to the basement is about US$ 250,000.00. Therefore we make an urgent appeal to our patrons for help during this disaster. Kindly donate generously through the donation link provided on main page. May Allah subhanahu wa’tallah bless you and your families in this World and the Hereafter for your support. Ameen!
