Presenting Islam to West Point Military Cadets

I had the pleasure of presenting Islam on behalf of 877-Why-Islam to a gathering of West Point Military Academy Cadets and other officials on behalf which was highly appreciated. One gentleman from the US Attorney General’s office remarked to me, “Every school in NJ should receive this presentation.”

Shaykh al-Husary Visits Jersey City in 1978

The late Shaykh and undisputed master of Quranic recitation Mahmoud Khalil al-Husary visited the Islamic Center of Jersey City in 1978 along with the late Shaykh Abdel-Halim Mahmoud. These are original photographs, never before published, submitted to me by a dear friend, whose father took the pictures himself. Shaykh Abdel-Halim died 9 months after these pictures were taken while Shaykh al-Husary died 2 years later, may Allah have mercy on them both.


Eid Mubarak to all from Six Flags!
