With G-d’s Name, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
The Mosque Cares
July 5, 2013
To Our Dear Nelson Mandela
We have been closely following news, updates and information related to your health. It gives us comfort to know you are being well taken care of during this challenging time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and our community sends messages of support.
Imam W. Deen Mohammed had a special relationship with you. Imam Mohammed worked tirelessly 33+ years, to improve life for all of humanity. The Mosque Cares, which is Imam Mohammed's ministry and his programs, initiatives and legacy continue under the leadership of his son W. Deen Mohammed II. The Mosque Cares' mission is simple, to serve our People, Community, and Humanity, or Mankind, and inculcate the high principles and values of the Qur’an and the excellent model of human life, Muhammad The Prophet, (prayers & peace be upon him). Imam Mohammed worked relentlessly to transform his people into community consciousness and life.
Among meetings the two of you shared: in 1990 the two of you met in Oakland, CA and Imam Mohammed donated a substantial amount to aid your efforts against South African apartheid and in 1993, Imam Mohammed spoke at an event hosted by you.
G-d is blessing you. Your influence and excellent leadership have led to great things for South Africa and all of humanity; we have all benefited from your promotion of peace and reconciliation.
We will continue our prayers for your speedy recovery.
