We encourage all members of our Muslim community in Columbia to come together and help make this year's Share Islam Day a successful event. Let's make a positive impression to the greater Columbia community as we open our doors and invite them to share dinner with us and introduce them to our way of guidance through this life.

Imam Adly of Columbia, South Carolina, on behalf of the Islamic Center of Columbia, Carolina Islamic Council, and Adly Publications condemns ALL acts of violence and injustice, past, present or future. Our Islamic teachings, after which we try to model our lives, absolutely forbid any act of transgression committed by anyone or against anyone.
We extend our most sincere condolences to the loved ones of the victims. May Allah make things easier for all of us and guide us all towards a more positive future.
From "Al Jawwab al Kaafi, by Imam Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyyah (rahmatullahi 'alaihi)
*ONE* The Prevention of Knowledge: Knowledge is a light which Allah throws into the heart and disobedience extinguishes this light.
Imam Shaafi'ee said:
*TWO* The Prevention of Sustenance: Just as Taqwaa brings about sustenance, the abandonment of Taqwaa causes poverty. There is nothing which can bring about sustenance like the abandonment of disobedience
*THREE* The prevention of obedience (to Allah). If there was no other punishment for sin other than that it prevents one from obedience to Allah then this would be sufficient.
*FOUR* Disobedience weakens the heart and the body. Its weakening the heart is something which is clear. Disobedience does not stop weakening it until the life of the heart ceases completely.
Assalamo Alikom wa Rahmato Allah wa Barakatoh,
Allah swt said :
"Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times? And it is Allâh that decreases or increases (your provisions), and unto Him you shall return."
