Shaykh Gilles Sadek

The belief and practice of Shaykh Gilles Sadek is that of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama^ah, those who adhere to the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad, .<br /><br />Our most important objective is to spread the correct knowledge of the Religion—teaching Muslims and non-Muslims about Islam—by spreading the Islamic Obligatory Knowledge and supporting it with clear evidence.<br /><br />The Messenger of Allah, , said: which means: "The best of the deeds is the belief in Allah and His Messenger." (al-Bukhariyy) In accordance with this, Shaykh Gilles Sadek emphasizes teaching Tawhid, the Islamic knowledge by which one would know what is and what is not proper to attribute to Allah and His Messenger.<br /><br />Shaykh Gilles is affiliated with A. I. C. P. who is a voice of moderation, striving to rid the Muslim community of the vile innovations and prevailing deviations—the proponents of which call for terrorism and violence.<br /><br />We do not compromise our stand against those who try to deviate the Muslims from the belief of the Prophet, his Companions, and the subsequent Muslim generations known as Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama^ah.<br /><br />We set our objectives with the realization that victory over evil can only be achieved by spreading religious education and propagating goodness among people—knowing that society can only be reformed through piety and fear of Allah (the Creator).<br /><br />We urge Muslims to help each other and share responsibilities, such as encouraging the wealthy to console and relieve the poor—whether Muslims or non-Muslims.<br /><br />The A. I. C. P. urges all Muslims to provide for the needs of the hungry, orphans, and needy, as well as to correct one’s self, family, and society in accordance with Islam. It was said by a prominent American official about the society in America, that "Our problems are beyond government’s reach. They are rooted in the loss of values." Islam provides the values that, if implemented, can resolve the societal problems many nations are facing today.
