Your Health & Wellness Team At The 24th Annual Muslim Convention!!

By Haneefah Salim-Fitness Pro.
Tinley Park, IL
This year’s convention, along with all the other exciting events to be held there, will include a complete health and wellness team. We will cover Mental and Spiritual Health, Nutritional Health, Cardio, Strength, Breathing and Relaxation fitness training for All! As coordinator of this year’s health and wellness team, I am so excited to introduce you to this dynamic group of experts along with myself.

Khadijah Islam, Harrisonburg, VA.  - Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN) BA, BSN, will speak to you for few minutes before each workout session to enlighten you on “What actually happens to your body when you exercise-The Benefits and Risk”

Sister Khadijah is from Philadelphia, PA and she currently resides in Harrisonburg, VA. This knowledgeable sister joined Nation of Islam 1971 and continued under the leadership of W.D. Muhammad. She has a BA in Sociology from Howard University; she also has a BS in nursing and has been a Critical Case Registered Nurse (CCRN) for nearly 30 years. Sister Khadijah currently works at Rockingham Memorial Hospital in Harrisonburg, VA as a Critical Care Staff RN. Based on her passion and experience in caring for people, she is sure to enhance your workout experience.

Imam Mutee A. Mulazim, MS, PSA, CSOTS will provide you with insight on the connection of mental, spiritual and physical health with emphasis on how to strive toward excellent mental and spiritual health.

Imam Mutee is the resident Imam of Masjid Al-Inshirah, Inc. in Baltimore County, Maryland. Under his leadership the community has purchased a 25 acre property which is currently being developed as Masjid Al-Inshirah/Peace Center. Another major accomplishment is that Imam Mutee and his wife Tiye Mulazim started Shura, Inc. agency, a residential provider to the intellectually disabled, with locations across Maryland. Imam Mutee is a behavioral therapist, a licensed Psychiatric Assistant, (PSA) and a Certified Sexual Offender Treatment Specialist (CSOTS). He coined the phrase ‘Post Traumatic Shirk Disorder’. Mutee is also an ABD Doctoral candidate.

His first love is being a Muslim using the excellent example of Prophet Muhammad (prayers and peace be upon him) and he feels honored to have served under Imam W.D. Mohammed during his lifetime. He joined the Nation of Islam in 1972 and in 1975 continued under the leadership of Imam W.D. Mohammad. The Imam has traveled to many countries around the world including parts of Africa, and Turkey spreading the positive message of Islam. During one of his visits, he delivered a talk to the governing body of Senegal on ‘Islam and the Plight of Former Slaves’.

He is a marriage counselor along with his wife Tiye of over 40 years. They were also blessed to complete their Hajj together in 1994. They frequently lecture on developing a successful marriage using psychology of the Holy Quran. They previously were hosts of ‘Iqraa’, an Islamic awareness radio show in Baltimore, MD. The couple has set an outstanding example for their children, grandchildren and the community to follow.

Haneefah Salim, Certified Fitness Professional-Many of you are familiar with me and you have taken some of my fitness classes at the prior Annual Muslim Conventions. This year, I plan to provide you with a total of four workout sessions during the weekend. ‘Ladies Cardio Jam'-A fun mix of Line Dance and Latin Jams on Saturday and Sunday Mornings followed by ‘Everyone’s Powercise’- This is a No Impact strengthening, flexibility, breathing and relaxation training for everyone-women, men youth and those with limitations.

For those of you who are not familiar with me, here’s a brief look at my experience: I’m from Philadelphia PA, and I am currently located in Maryland. I have been a strong supporter of the Leadership of W.D. Muhammad for many years. Among my many Blessings is that I have been able to complete the Hajj journey twice. Currently, I serve as the Fitness Coordinator/Consultant for the Al-Mu’adhdhan Hajj group located in Philadelphia, PA.

I have over ten years of experience in the fitness field. My B.S. degree is in Health Care Administration and my four fitness certifications are from the American Aerobic Association International and the International Sports Medicine Association ( aka AAAI-ISMA). ‘Fitness Life Pro’, the business which I own and operate, provides services in health and fitness for all levels and includes personal training and group training. ‘Fitness Life Pro’ workshops and exercise classes are held at various facilities located within and outside of the USA. In my travels, I have found that there is a great need to educate and aid the masses in the struggle against obesity related diseases. Please note: that without proper guidance and education your children that are currently extremely overweight or obese will most likely carry that into adulthood.

As part of a Government Nationwide Fitness Campaign to fight obesity, I participated in an exercise DVD which became an effective fitness tool for employees throughout the agency. You can find several of my own exercise sessions on DVDs, which I created for all levels for your home use at: www.FitnessLifePro.

I’m certain that every one of you will be able to benefit from our Health and Wellness team. This year’s 24th Annual Muslim Convention will be held at Tinley Park, ILL. Convention Center from August 30 through September 1, 2013.
