“Although cross-cultural references can be misleading, it seems fitting to compare the impact of Imam WD Mohammed on Islam among African Americans with that of Martin Luther, who radically altered the course and content of Christianity.”

The Mosque Cares Offers Sincere Condolences on the Passing of Kofi Annan

"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family." Kofi Annan

Statement from the family
It is with immense sadness that the Annan family and the Kofi Annan Foundation announce that Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Laureate, passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th August after a short illness. His wife Nane and their children Ama, Kojo and Nina were by his side during his last days.

Kofi Annan was a global statesman and a deeply committed internationalist who fought throughout his life for a fairer and more peaceful world. During his distinguished career and leadership of the United Nations he was an ardent champion of peace, sustainable development, human rights and the rule of law.
After stepping down from the United Nations, he continued to work tirelessly in the cause of peace through his chairmanship of the Kofi Annan Foundation and as chair of The Elders, the group founded by Nelson Mandela. He was an inspiration to young and old alike.
Kofi Annan was a son of Ghana and felt a special responsibility towards Africa. He was particularly committed to African development and deeply engaged in many initiatives, including his chairmanship of the Africa Progress Panel and his early leadership of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).
Wherever there was suffering or need, he reached out and touched many people with his deep compassion and empathy. He selflessly placed others first, radiating genuine kindness, warmth and brilliance in all he did. He will be greatly missed by so many around the world, as well as his staff at the Foundation and his many former colleagues in the United Nations system. He will remain in our hearts forever.

Heartfelt Condolences from The Mosque Cares on the passing of Aretha Franklin

The Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed [The Mosque Cares] extends heartfelt condolences to family, friends and fans of the legendary Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.  We are united in appreciation for her internationally acclaimed talents, which cover all genres of music.  She was a visionary and pioneer and generously served humanity for decades.

Quoting President Barack Obama, “Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade; our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect."
