This Labor Day Weekend!

OFFICIAL MUSLIM CONVENTION SITE: www.MuslimConvention.net 

The praise and glory belongs to G’d alone. We want to thank supporters, attendees, participants, workshop & forum presenters, Imams, business-persons, awardees, planning committee members, volunteers, neighbors and friends for making the Ministry of Imam W Deen Mohammed 27th Annual Muslim Convention a memorable one and a success! 

The 2016 theme "Understanding Our Human Value to Enhance Our Productivity in Society." The weekend’s events provided opportunities to see and work with community, meet new people, and make new friends. This year’s convention may go down as one of our most informative and productive yet. Many believers left with innovative ideas for community building projects and initiatives. 

We thank Allah Most High for the opportunity to continue this annual tradition for the sake and the betterment of our community that is sometimes affectionately referred to as the Community of Imam W. Deen Mohammed. 

We are already looking forward to seeing you again next year! Hope we all enjoyed a happy Labor Day weekend.

Commemorating Mandela Day!


Nelson Mandela changed our world forever as he worked tirelessly to dismantle racism and the evils that come with it while simultaneously working toward racial reconciliation.  Mandela’s stance on social justice is a standard that has impacted people across the globe. He was a friend of Muslim Americans, who also supported his fight against apartheid. On June 30, 1990 Mandela met with Imam W. Deen Mohammed in Oakland, California.  Imam Mohammed donated $85,000 to Mr. Mandela on behalf of the Muslim American Community under his leadership.  With a long history of commitment to the anti-apartheid struggle, Muslim Americans are proud to embody Mandela's spirit and quest for positive change.

With Heavy Hearts: We Stand With The People of Nice, France

Our hearts ache as we can't imagine what type of sickness causes a person to perpetrate such heinous violence. The Mosque Cares thoughts and prayers are with all victims and their families affected by this tragedy. We stand united with all human kind against murder and violence directed toward innocent people. As citizens all of us have a responsibility of keeping the peace.
 
If we see or know someone suffering from mental illness or violent tendencies we should consult with community services on seeking counsel for individuals that may need counseling. It is our belief that if we all work together to be eyes and ears to protect against violence and potential violence, along with our prayers for peace, a difference can be made.
 
"Nothing can offer you the kind of comfort with your fellow human being like that bond that unites us under G-D. Unity is important, because human beings want peace." Imam W. Deen Mohammed
