The International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) reported that Gaza's water and sewage system has been severely damaged leaving Gaza's civilian population without clean drinking water, basic sanitation and at risk of related diseases.
ISGH President Hashim Badat said:
"We call on people of faith to pray for peace and for the safety of all civilians wherever they may be. We also ask that our elected officials, journalists, friends and neighbors treat the crisis in Gaza as the humanitarian issue that it is."
ISGH recognizes how emotionally charged the situation is and just how sensitive people can be during times of tragedy. The recent anti-Jewish and anti-Muslim incidents that took place in both Paris and New York prove that this is especially true when violence erupts in the holy land. We are proud of Houstonians and our city's long history of mutual respect, religious tolerance and interfaith relationship building. We pray that collectively, we will continue to lead the nation by our example in the days and years to come.
ISGH encourages all people of conscious to take the following actions:
- Contact your US House Representative http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
- Contact your two US Senators for your state http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm
- White House Comment Line http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/write-or-call
- Contact the State Department Call (202) 647-4000 and ask for the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs.
- Provide feedback to local media (include both praise for balanced and accurate coverage as well as polite criticism of news items that you find problematic) through phone calls and email to express your opinion.

Insha'Allah ISGH requests that you pay your Zakat al Fitr before Eidul Fitr. This is a very important request because in an attempt to be as responsible and efficient with your donations as possible ISGH has established a unique food coupon voucher system by working with many of your favorite Halal stores. This helps us ensure that your fitr donations are used responsibly and in a way that they were intended for.
You can pay your Zakat al Fitr at any ISGH Islamic Center or online . This year the amount is just $8.00 per person.
