A true Thanksgiving

As American-Muslims, Thanksgiving holds a special meaning for us. The Holy Prophet of Islam laid strong emphasis on the practice of offering thanks and the quality of gratefulness, not just to God but also to fellow human beings.

There is a profuse sense of gratitude to God Almighty for all who live and yield the freedoms and security accorded to us in the United States of America.

Paramount is the freedom of religion and a sense of tolerance underwritten by secularism. We join our fellow Americans in prayer for the protection of these freedoms against those who seek to diminish and abuse them.

A leading Muslim disaster-relief organization called Humanity First will be active this Thanksgiving with relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy as an act and expression of gratitude.
We invite our fellow Americans to join us and make it a true Thanksgiving by serving those in need.
