BMUC Sunday School Opens
Bloomfield Hills–September 9–Imam Hossameldin Musa welcomed 133 students to the Bloomfield Unity Centerâ€™s first Sunday School session last Sunday, September 6th.
The Sunday school will be open 10AM to 2:45PM each Sunday except for â€˜eid, Sept. 20th.
The imam was excited to tell TMO also about the hifz program which is beginning this year at BMUC, patterned on the extremely successful and powerful similar program at the Tawheed Center (which already has several graduates back in Western style schools)–the BMUC hifz teacher is Shaykh Ahmad Mabrook.
Imam Musa explained â€œwe have a friendly school, itâ€™s very clean, we have AC in every room, top of the line teachers–some of them with MBAâ€™s–many were raised in this country.â€
The Sunday school hopes to welcome many more students this year–so please consider joining the program to secure for your children a basic knowledge of Islam in a warm environment. Imam Hossam emphasizes that one of the goals of his school is to give â€œwarmth, love, and caringâ€ to the students–nothing less than what they receive in their mainstream schools during the week.
The price of the school is $650 per year for BMUC members, and $750 per year for nonmembers–which is an amazing deal if you consider that for that price students receive food, books, and tuition for the program.
Explains the younger imam Musa, â€œWe use the I love Islam series–itâ€™s really good.â€
Most of the students in the program are from local public schools, some from Huda.
In school, children also pray dhohr in jamaâ€™at behind the elder Imam Musa, who is now the longest-serving imam in Michigan.
Michigan Food Pantry Program
Please support this program. The Islamic Shura Council of Michigan is supporting Gleaners Food Bank to buy food at a discount and distribute it throughout Michigan. The program is year-round.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-12th) Needs Your Support
The only Muslim legislator in Michigan is under fire from political opponents after opposing a bridge project by Matty Moroun. Apparently in collaboration with Moroun, political consultant Adolph Mongo has filed multiple recall petitions against Tlaib.
Tarek Baydoun is spearheading an effort to defend her. To join the effort to defend and help her you can contact 313-297-8800.
