Say: We believe in Allah (THE GOD) and in what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the twelve sons of Jacob, and what was given to Moses, Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between them and to Him (Allah) we have submitted (in Islam).” [Qur’an, 3:84]
To Our Jewish Neighbors and Friends,
The Islamic Society of Greenville is very saddened and disturbed by the mass hooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday morning. We would like to extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to the families and loved ones of the deceased and those injured. We wish that comfort and peace will arrive soon and that there will be much strength in all Jewish communities across the country. We also commend the bravery of the officers who rushed to the scene.
This horrific act claimed the lives of individuals exercising their right to worship peacefully. It is an attack on all Americans who hold dear the values that our country is founded upon. This tragic event is yet another reminder that, as Americans, we must stand united, regardless of where we come from or how we choose to worship. The Islamic Society of Greenville stands with the Jewish community in Greenville and anywhere in this greatly difficult time. Please know that we view you as our brothers and sisters and your pain is also ours.
The Islamic Society of Greenville
Greenville has been home of many Muslims throughout the years. In the 1980's, Greenville saw a steadily increasing number of Muslims moving into the area, as Greenville was becoming a center for engineering and technology. Up till this point in time, Greenville had no place of worship for Muslims and the community was becoming increasingly concerned about the need for Islamic education as young Muslims were growing up. Within the homes of Muslim families, classes and prayers were established and soon the increasing population of Muslims in the late 1980's would outgrow these homes. Seeing this need, several committed Muslims started to organize and come together with the goal of establishing a Masjid that would be the center of the Muslim community and education in The Islamic Society of Greenville is an independent non-profit organization. It functions to provide a place for Muslims to worship and to spread Islam in the United States by providing religious and educational facilities for members of the society.
