      2008: A Look Back As We Move Forward


      As Salamu Alaikum, Dear Brothers and Sisters! 

      Al-hamdulillah, MANA's Second Annual Conference was a success, and I want to give thanks to Allah for all His blessings on us.  As I declared in my Jum'ah khutbah at the Conference, MANA's sole intention is to please Allah the Almighty.  As we work to develop and implement an American Muslim agenda, we must remember that our success is tied to making sure our agenda is rooted in the agenda of Allah and His Messenger Muhammad (saws).  I want to also give thanks to the numerous sisters and brothers who worked to make the Conference a success.  May Allah bless you all.

      The most gratifying part of the Conference is the fact that attendees overwhelmingly saw the Conference as beneficial.  In the evaluation forms attendees gave the overall quality of the Conference a 4.6 out of 5; and the overall quality of the presenters a 4.4 out of 5-that's like giving MANA an "A." 


      We are also happy that approximately 1500 people attended the Conference, which is slightly better than last year.  However, we really expected an even larger number of attendees, so we are evaluating how to increase the participation and improve the Conference.

      The Conference highlighted our progress over the past year and outlined our future agenda.  Our major accomplishments in 2008 have been the establishment of five SHARE Centers, the launch of the Healthy Marriage and Community Reentry Initiatives and the founding of the youth group, Seven Shades.  All these initiatives need to be strengthened in 2009.  Areas that need attention are Dawah and Masjid Development.  Task Forces for these two areas will be formed soon to start planning.  In sha Allah


      With the help of Allah, we look forward to greater success and achievement.  As always, we appreciate and welcome your feedback and support.

      Your brother in faith,

He has inspired us to come together, and we ask Him to continue to bring our hearts closer, to forgive and guide us, amin.His Messenger (pbuh) taught us that whoever is not grateful to people is not grateful to Allah, so....:

      In Solidarity with the Palestinians

      by Imam Al-Hajj Talib 'Abdur-Rashid


      Since the year 1967, progressive African Americans have stood in solidarity with the Palestinian people, and in public condemnation of the state of Israel for its human rights violations against the Arab people of the holy land. We have also encouraged other Americans to do the same.
      Based upon a platform of human rights, The Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) infused American liberation struggles with a consciousness that demanded activist recognition of the injustices being directed against the Palestinians, and the similarities between their struggle and that of America 's indigenous peoples. The Black Political Convention of 1972 affirmed the right of Palestinian self-determination, even as Native Americans, African Americans, Spanish-speaking Americans and others, struggled for the same. Now, four decades later...
