Black History Month, Willingboro Lajna - February 25, 2012

The attendees also included some members from Philadelphia Lajna, and a few local guests - there were about 20 altogether. Although a small turnout the content of the program was profound.

The theme was Culture & Change, Black History in America. Sister Mariam Abiola recited the Holy Qur’an, followed by translation from sister Aamira McRae. She is younger sister of sister Anesia McRae, although not Muslim was very eager to participate in the program. Sister JameelaHamid presented on African-American Slavery in America, Anesia McRae spoke on the Role of Ahmadiyyat on African-American Muslims, and Nusrat Rashid addressed the Civil Rights Movement. Despite limited time, we were able to touch on three key milestones of African-American history.

 

 
 

Sister Jameela’s speech was very moving; many tears were shed, and questions asked. Sister Naima Latif had visited the site of the slave door exit to board the slave ship displayed in one of the pictures, while traveling in Ghana. She spoke about her feelings on how sad she felt at the cruelty of the owners towards the slaves, and questioned the morality of how they could withstand the screams heard from below their homes where the slaves were kept captive before the ship’s departure.

A casual stroll one weekend evening into a Panera Bread restaurant laid the foundation of a Food Pantry at Willingboro’s Al Nasr Mosque in New Jersey.
Looking at the menu displays to make a choice of order we noticed a small sign that said that all products were made fresh daily and all leftovers at the end of the day were donated to feed the children.
