Wisdom From the Community Builder Imam Qasim Ahmed

Wisdom From the Community Builder Imam Qasim Ahmed

“I build communities and schools both physically and mentally because I’m a carpenter by trade; so that’s what I do and I’ve been doing it for 30 years. It’s not just building individuals though it’s building communities; we have Qur’anic workshops. At my institute, the Islamic Learning Institute, the motto is ‘Traveling the World to Educate and Propagate’ that’s what I do.” Along with training Imams, Imam Qasim also trains teachers and creates youth development classes along with helping communities create an overall education framework.

Fighting for Light, A moment with Hector Camacho, JR

“You know, recently I've been offered sponsorships from companies that are haram and I say no. The money may sound good but it's against Allah's words so I keep away from them. And that's what I believe in. Unfortunately it's like that but hey if you know what's in your heart then you live by it and go by God's way, it shouldn't bother nobody.”

Young Hafiz – Guardians of the Word

Young Hafiz – Guardians of the Word

Three young men in our community have recently been recognized as Hafiz and are leading taraweeh here in Charlotte during this Ramadan. The Arabic root of “hafiz” directly translates to “guardian” so literally speaking, these young men are guardians of proper recitation and thereby protectors of the perfection of the prayers of those they lead. After speaking with them, it is clear that they take this task very seriously.
