CAIR PRESENTS AWARD TO IMAM W. DEEN MOHAMMED


September 06, 2005

Board chairman speaks at The Mosque Cares annual convention

(CHICAGO, IL, 9/06/05) – On Saturday, September 3, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) presented an award to Imam W. Deen Mohammed in recognition of his outstanding leadership role in the American Muslim community.

The award was presented by CAIR Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed at The Mosque Cares annual convention in Chicago held over the Labor Day weekend. An inscription on the award read: "To Imam W.D. Mohammed, for your outstanding leadership and service to the Muslim American Community."

CAIR-Chicago representatives Yaser Tabbara and Ahmed Rehab also spoke to several thousand convention attendees.

"The Mosque Cares is a beautiful example of positive community organizing and empowerment," said Tabbara. "We are grateful for the opportunity to work together."

"CAIR believes in community empowerment and it is therefore quite natural for us to work closely with The Mosque Cares and Imam Mohammed," said Parvez Ahmed. "We are very optimistic about future cooperation."

In his acceptance speech, Imam Mohammed praised CAIR's work in defense of civil rights.

CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 31 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
