Eid Greetings from CWSC
INTERNATIONAL – We pray this Ramadan was our best ever and that our Lord will accept our sacrifices, prayers, charities and other special devotions performed out of love for Him and our fellow man. Thank you to all our team and listeners who brought the Qur’an live on air daily at American Muslim 360 and from the wonderful group intellect that engaged in sharing and discussing the daily reading…may you be rewarded greatly. Thank you to all who purified their wealth through their generosity and support of the Annual Ramadan Telethon and for all acts of faith in unity in the Return to Innocence Campaign.
May Allah (SWT) bless you, your family and community and all the believers globally with Joyous Eid Celebrations.
May this time be a healing benefiting all humanity, especially in lands dominated by sectarianism, violence, war and strife. May men and women of goodwill by their example help restrain even those resigned to hatred, tumult and oppression, to allow Eid-ul-Fitr to be a true pause and cessation of hostilities, that peace may have a chance to bridge the divide.

Encouraging academic excellence, civic engagement and historic preservation
NATIONAL – Scholarships are another intelligentsia component at CWSC and focuses on the fact that while we’re working on any number of issues at any point in time, we must devote resources simultaneously to secure our next generation intelligentsia leaders. Each February during African American History Month through June, our scholarship cycle opens to qualified matriculating college-bound high school and current college students of all faiths.
In addition to providing cash funds to pay for higher education, our scholarships feature a historical and cultural preservation component that offers families of pioneers the ability to open nationally supported, tax deductible college scholarships in honor of a pioneer.
Through MAP scholarships, CWSC is a national scholarship administrator helping families establish lasting legacies for those who helped make a home for Al-Islam and/or religious freedom and civil rights in America. In essence, the next generation will learn about our pioneers’ contributions and be inspired to not only get an education, but to also be civically engaged in helping to remake the world.
Because of the generosity of families in the MAP program and donor support, we now offer five (5) scholarships including the Payton Next Generation Scholarship; Taheerah R. Muhammad Educational Excellence Scholarship; Twin Servant of Peace Excellence in Broadcasting & Communication Scholarship; Words Make People Literary Excellence & Scholarship Award honoring Imam W. Deen Mohammed; and the Yahya K. Muhammad Business & Community Leadership Award.
CWSC Scholarships helps us show our students we care about their future and need their voice and intellect at the table of shuraa baynahum for the community’s future. Encouraging our students and making a contribution to higher education through college funding are great blessings for us all.
To apply, contribute to a scholarship or start a scholarship in the name of your loved one, either current or posthumously; visit Scholarships right here at CWSC…their future is our future.
