Khutbah on extremism

In this age of extremes, it is important to remind ourselves that our religion is the religion of the middle way. Allah SWT says in the Qur’an:

“And thus have We willed you to be a community of the middle way, so that [with your lives] you might bear witness to the truth before all mankind, and that the Messenger might bear witness to it before you.” (2:143)


Departing from this middle way, humans naturally go into extremes. On one side is the extremism of atheism, devoid of religiosity and spirituality. On the other side is religious extremism. Some adherents to our religion, Muslims, are not immune to that as well. However, being the final message to humankind from their Lord, Islam has an in-built mechanism of dealing with extremism. It also clearly defines this undesirable tendency so that Muslims can recognize it and stay away from it.

The term "Bosniak" is the historical name referring to the majority ethnic group of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Most Bosniaks are Muslims who speak the south-Slavic language Bosnian though there are non-Muslim Bosniaks. Indigenous Bosniaks also live in other lands of Southeastern Europe including in Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Sandzak, Serbia and Turkey. The Bosniaks arrived in America and Canada in about three waves, at the beginning of the 20th century, starting in 1902, then during the post-World War II period during the 1950's and lastly, during the war and Genocide against the Bosniaks in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the 1990's.

Condemnation of terrorist acts in Paris

Islamic Community of North American Bosniaks strongly condemns yesterday’s acts of violence and terrorism, and senseless killings of 10 journalists and 2 police officers in Paris. ICNAB also sends condolences to the families of the victims. In the name of American Bosniaks, we would like to extend our solidarity with the people of France.

Bosnian people know what it means to be a victim of violence, terror and oppression, and we understand how devastating it can be. On the other hand, people’s willingness to express their freedom in any way possible is much stronger than any actions of violence and cannot be silenced by any force, no matter how intimidating that force may be.
