ICIE Town Hall Meeting – Clarifying Points on My Letter of Resignation

On behalf of myself and my family, we thank everyone for the tremendous outpouring of support for us. May Allah reward everyone of you for doing so.

I would like to post an audio clip of a short and unexpected talk I gave on Monday evening, June 29th, 2015. I had nothing to do with the orchestration of this event: several hundred people gathered to discuss aspects of my tenure at ICIE, my leadership, my psychological state and my capabilities as an Imam and Religious Director. At the behest of several of the attendees it was recommended I come down to clarify my statements. Below is the audio from that talk.

As I wrote on Twitter,

“Let not your loss for words ever be a loss for action.”

We ask you to remove the word “sad” from your vocabulary and replace it with a sense of excitement and wonder at the works, in sha’Allah, we will produce together at the forthcoming Center.
