One America Campaign AND This Year in July - Three events in one ‎Ramadan Session; ‪New World Patriotism;‬ ‪FirstSunday‬




"The government of the United States and the Constitution of this great land recognize this inherent nature or inborn gift from The Creator, G-d, as we call Him Allah in Al-Islam for Muslims.  The government document reads, "We hold these Truths to be self-evident." And it goes on to say that not government but "The Creator endowed or gave certain rights to human beings." They are called "inalienable rights"; they cannot be taken away. The government took the position that not even the power of government can take away those rights." - Imam W. Deen Mohammed



As Muslims we are working to present our own narrative to the American public. Muslim Americans understand the magnitude of the challenge facing our nation and our community.  The Mosque Cares is participating in USCMO initiatives which include: the One America Campaign to enhance understanding of Muslims and Islam; a Million Voters Registration Drive prior to the 2016 presidential election; and a National Open Mosque Day designed to help increase interactions between Muslims and people of other faiths and backgrounds. As always, The Mosque Cares will continue its strong alliances with interfaith partners, social justice groups and other minority communities, Insha Allah.

Wishing you a Happy Father's Day and a blessed day always.


"We need to go back to the innocent human person. You want to know where that person is? It is in the arms of any new mother. The new baby that the mother gets into her arms, she gives to the father and they hold their future, the new human being. That new human being is ready to be guided aright." Imam W. Deen Mohammed

Muslim Americans Asked to Prepare for Muhammad Ali Funeral Prayer

(Washington, D.C., 6/6/2016) - The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of leading national and local Muslim organizations is asking local communities to make preparations to attend the funeral prayer (salat al-janazah) for Muhammad Ali scheduled to be offered at noon Thursday in Louisville, KY. (Community members are encouraged to use #GenAli on social media to explain how they will continue his legacy.)
 
The janaza prayer will be held at Freedom Hall in Louisville, KY and will be lead by Imam Zaid Shaker. Funeral organizers chose the venue both because it seats 18,000 and because it holds historical significance for the hometown hero. Ali fought, and won, his first professional fight there in 1960.
 
Communities that are unable to send representatives to the Louisville funeral prayer are being asked to organize local prayers, called "salat al-ghaib" (sa-lat al-gha-ib), which are performed for Muslims who have died in a distant place. Those prayers could be offered either before the nightly Ramadan taraweeh or after jummah prayers on Friday.
 
MEDIA NOTE: Muslim American leaders will hold a news conference in Louisville, KY., just prior to the funeral prayers to highlight the historic impact of Muhammad Ali's life and to explain Islamic funeral practices. More details will be released later.

On Friday June 10, a public funeral will be held at the  KFC Yum! Center in Louisville. World dignitaries will be attending the funeral ceremony including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and King Abdullah II of Jordan. President Bill Clinton will deliver a eulogy.
 
Later this week, a suggested sermon (khutba) outlining Muhammad Ali's importance to the American Muslim community and to the way Islam is viewed in our nation will be distributed to Islamic prayer leaders (imams) who will conduct the normal congregational prayers (jummah) this coming Friday.

So the fasting person should know that the fast is for the pleasure of G-d, to please G-d, to fulfill a request that G-d made." - Imam W. Deen Mohammed

The Greatest Champ of All Time

When we look at the history of the African American community, one important factor in popularizing Islam in America is Muhammad Ali. Imam W. Deen Mohammed once said, “the greatest champ of all times as far as I'm concerned, Muhammad Ali; is one of my strongest supporters.”  Muhammad Ali is our Brother in Islam. With great sadness and love, The Mosque Cares | Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed offers heartfelt condolences to family, friends and community.

“Muhammad & Khalilah Ali are our family. We grew up with their children, Muhammad II, Maryum, Rasheda and Jamillah and their grand-parents Sadrudin and Amina Ali are two of Imam Mohammed’s most trusted supporters” said The Mosque Cares President Warithudeen Mohammed II, “one of my most cherished moments with Muhammad Ali was when he showed up on our block on the South Side of Chicago when I was a little boy one summer afternoon. All of the neighborhood children were playing in the street and who pulls up, Muhammad Ali! He shared hugs and laughter with all of us. And guess who was the proudest child of all, still today I am on a high from this encounter as he visited our family home and all my friends had proof of all of the exotic stories I had been telling them about.”

One of the most beloved men of our time, if not the most beloved African American man ever. Known as one of the most recognizable people on earth. He used his celebrity status in the promotion of peace. We celebrate and admire his extraordinary courage and strong faith. Him being a true Champion in and out of the boxing ring and when facing challenges and adversity. His legacy will live on as an inspiration to all of humanity. His life helped shape the culture of our entire country.

May Allah bless our Brother, Muhammad Ali with the highest station in paradise. Ameen
