Saviors Day This Weekend

As Salaam Alaikum,
Dear Imams, Business Persons & Community of Believers:

We invite you to come together as we celebrate a very special time on a very special occasion • Saviors Day 2017 Commemoration “Reflecting on Our Past to Establish a Future Life” which takes place February 25, 2017 at the Chicago Marriott Midway Airport located at 6520 S. Cicero, Chicago, IL.  Doors open at 11:00 AM.  The Saviors Day Program [$25] begins at 1:00 PM and the Hadid Award Banquet [$75] starts at 6:00 PM.  New Africa Marketplace will be open 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM; Vendors secure your space for $75 which covers a table, 2 chairs and all day access.

The Mosque Cares [Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed] extends our personal regards and open invitation as we welcome your support and participation in commemorating our history and building our future. We are appealing to you to renew your commitment to Imam W. Deen Mohammed’s Legacy, Mission and Vision by purchasing tickets for Saviors Day and tickets to The Annual Hadid (IRON) Banquet.  

As part of our mission, The Mosque Cares is committed to helping establish a balanced community life, witnessing the eternal wisdom of the words of G-d and the life exemplified by Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).  Part of what balances our life is our established history and traditions.  Based on the precedent set by The Honorable Elijah Mohammed, Imam W. Deen Mohammed charted the Saviors Day course for us, by sharing with us the richness, significance and purpose of our Saviors Day Celebration.  On one occasion, he stated: “We observe Saviors Day to stay in touch with The Best of our LIFE. The Best of our History…For our History is more important that what happens any single day…We want to recall this history! We want to yearly have this occasion to recall our Best Life!”   In addition, he provided a clear structure on what Saviors Day should be about! “Saviors Day should be a day to focus on our history, but not for the sake of just recalling history, but also to benefit from the best of our past history, as we make history, that is what it should be about!”  All of what Imam Mohammed provided to us as inspiration will be part of our Saviors Day 2017.  

Your support is needed.  We encourage that you don’t delay and purchase tickets for you and your family now.  You are also able to donate and sponsor registrations for others.
