Bloomfield Hills, MIâ€“For the last visit of The Ramadan Series Project, the Muslim Unity Center in Bloomfield Hills was visited for one of their nightly Ramadan programs.
Upon entering the mosque, is a beautiful large stone with the crescent moon at the top of it, with Qurâ€™an verses scripted below from Chapter three, Aal-e-Imran, verse 84
â€œSay: We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us, and what was revealed to Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq and Yaqoub and the tribes, and what was given to Musa and Isa and to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make any distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims submitting to Him.â€
This sign is surrounded with picturesque flowers, and has lights beaming on it, truly showing the essence of their name, Unity.
When the call to prayer was made, every man, woman, teen, child, all rushed to the prayer hall with one purpose: to speak to God through one of the prescribed daily prayers.
Talking to Imam Mohammad El Masmari, he emphasized the picture of unity and peace among the diverse people living in America, and the significant role the coming generation will play.
This week being the last week of the holy month of Ramadan is the end of our mosque visits. But stay tune to a conclusion of the project, which will include a few photos of the celebration of Eid Al-Fitr that will be taken at local Islamic Centers. Also, the webcast will be coming back the Thursday after Ramadan, and can be seen on www.MuslimObserver.com. Also, all of the footage will be compiled into a documentary and will include all the mosques visits, photos of attendees, and interviews with a few of the Imams. This will be played at The Muslim Observerâ€™s 3rd Annual Fundraising Dinner being held on Sunday, September 23rd at the Sheraton Hotel in Novi.
