Islamic History Month: events running from Oct. 16-30

This year's Islamic History Month will explore the historical and theological perceptions regarding two of the major events in the Islamic Calendar, the annual Hajj or pilgrimage to Makkah and the Hijrah, or the historical journey of emigration undertaken by the Prophet Muhammad and his companions fleeing the persecution in Makkah. One focus of our commemoration will be on Muslim Women in History, providing a timely reminder of the challenges they face both from a historical and theological perspective.

Why Should Muslims Vote?

1. Voting in a democratic system is one of the few ways to affect social changes, and as Muslims it is our civic and religious duty to strive to move the society forward as closely as possible to the ideals of justice, fairness, equity and compassion for all.

2. Muslims are mandated by the Qur'an to work in cooperation with everyone for common causes that are beneficial to all people. Continued...
