A Happy Thanksgiving to All
At ING we want to wish all of you a very blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving with your family and friends as we remember to give thanks for the many bounties we enjoy in our lives.
Islam, like other faith traditions, emphasizes the importance of giving thanks, not only to God but to other people. Expressing gratitude and being grateful is mentioned in various Quranic verses and prophetic sayings including one that explains that “If one is thankful to God, He will increase His favors” (14:7). A famous prophetic saying (hadith) states that “one who fails to thank other people fails to thank God.”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters, volunteers, and staff, who not only provide a continuous source of support and guidance for ING, but for their dedication to fighting bigotry and intolerance at a time when Islamophobia is at an all-time high, and a deep commitment to fairness and justice. Thanks for helping us to do the work we do!
