CAIR Honors Imam W. Deen Mohammed
Muslim Journal
September 30, 2005

CHICAGO, Ill. – On Sat., Sept. 3, 2005, the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) presented an award to Imam W. Deen Mohammed in recognition of his outstanding leadership role in the American Muslim community.

Venue was the Awards Dinner at The Mosque Cares sponsored Annual Islamic Convention held on the Labor Day Weekend. The Award was presented by CAIR Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed.

An inscription on the award read: “To Imam W. Deen 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 at the Dinner.

“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 W. Deen Mohammed praised CAIR’s work in defense of Civil Rights.

The MC for the Awards Dinner, Tahara Kariem, is a member in one of CAIR’s West coast Chapters.

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.
