Global Dawah Day

We NEED your participation. Join us tomorrow and submit your recipe during #GlobalDawahDay 

CLICK HERE: http://www.wdeensoup.com/contact-us.html

Last year, The Mosque Cares along with Muslims from 60+ countries across 6 continents participated in Global Dawah Day, making it one the biggest dawah days in modern history. 

This year’s campaign was designed under the slogan “Who Do You Love?” to share with the world why Muslims love Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
With this in mind, we invite and encourage all faith-based people to submit a recipe during Global Dawah Day, June 20th - visit www.WDeenSoup.com.

Food is universal and brings us together.  Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said "Eat together and do not separate, for the blessing is in being together."


Juneteenth Observance

"All African Americans should know about this observance day.  Our history as Americans and as Muslims has developed to unite us again with the Motherland, Africa. 

It is a new life we want for ourselves as descendants of Africa in America.  Recently, we made a statement expressing these deep sentiments, the Statement is: “A commitment to continue in the best tradition of the African American struggle for improvement on self and race.” 

This is expressed in the language, New Africa. Juneteenth observance gives us an opportunity to publish our best sentiments and preserve this day that celebrates our Emancipation.  The Emancipation process must continue until we are free spiritually as well as bodily."  Imam W. Deen Mohammed

Remembering Those Who Sacrifice



Americans across the land will gather in unity to remember all who have made sacrifices in service to our country.  

 

This Memorial Day, we thank all Believers in Uniform for the tremendous contributions they have made to community and country.  We are deeply honored and recognize you and your families' selfless service, both seen and unseen. 

 

Imam W. Deen Mohammed* said, "everything that happens in human life, as designed by our Creator, has a sign for our intelligence, for our mind to read. And everything carries both knowledge and mercy."  

 

Honoring those who served isn't just about Memorial Day, it's about all of us serving humanity in some capacity each and every day.

The Mosque Cares joined Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, residents, community, faith and business leaders to kick-off the second annual Summer of Faith and Action, a citywide violence prevention initiative to promote safety throughout Chicago communities in the summer months.

"While we may be a city of different neighborhoods, when it comes to keeping our kids safe, we are one Chicago," said Mayor Emanuel. "Whether it is West Side, South Side or North Side, Faith and Action is about one city coming together with a common purpose to keep our children safe, secure, and supervised this summer."

On Friday May 22nd from 7-9 PM, Summer of Faith and Action, encourages faith and community leaders, business owners and residents to gather together focusing on creating a safe and secure environment throughout the Chicagoland area.  

Last year nearly 1,000 residents gathered at over 100 locations across the City marking the first night of Faith and Action. This year participants have planned barbeques, street corner prayer, rallies, block club parties, CAPS activities and events for youth.

To register to participate or to host an event in your community email: MayorRSVP@cityofchicago.org or call 312-744-1718.

Bringing our supporters and attendees into promotion of our Annual Muslim Convention


The Mosque Cares is bringing our supporters and attendees into promotion of our Annual Muslim Convention. We now have convenient business card size promotional material with registration and contact. This allows everyone, including you to participate.  This is our national Dawah effort and Dawah is an obligation for Muslims which is a gift and mercy from Allah (SWT).

Allah (SWT) says in the Quran: "Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity." (3:104)

For example those things Allah (SWT) has forbidden for us should not be looked upon as a hardship but as an invitation to conduct lawful business. As African American people we are well aware of the low rate of our dollars changing hands among our own people. Through the promotion of halal products at the Annual Muslim Convention and throughout our communities nationwide and worldwide we can change those negative circumstances to positive if we all take on this great challenge of doing more for self and kind.

If you would like to participate in this effort to invite our friends and fellow citizens to our Annual Muslim Convention email your contact information and requested quantity to wdmministry@sbcglobal.net.

FYI - full size 8.5x11 flyers are also available. Don't forget to hang these in areas visible to the public.

Thank you for your time, May Allah (SWT) continue to guide and bless all of our good works.
