Muslimat Academic Excellence & Civic Leadership
With Allah’s Name, the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer
“…O my Lord! advance me in knowledge.” Al-Qu’ran, 20:114
“Whoever seeks a way to acquire knowledge Allah will make easy his way to Paradise.”—Prophet Muhammed (S)
“Education is the greatest tool for advancing the society.” We do want to advance our society, don’t we? Are you a part of a society or are you just a part of a Masjid?”―Imam W. Deen Mohammed (R)
NATIONAL ― Community Wide Shuraa Conference, Inc. (CWSC) congratulates Haseena A. Sabree, the 2017 recipient of the Words Make People (WMP) Leadership and Community Service Scholarship Award and Aliyah Cathey-Akbar, the 2017 recipient of the Twin Servant of Peace (TSP) Excellence in Broadcasting & Communications Scholarship established in honor of the Twin Servant of Peace, Imam Thomas Abdul-Salaam (R).
The WMP Award is a national scholarship established in honor of American Muslim leader, humanitarian, and religious scholar, the late Honorable Imam Dr. W. Deen Mohammed. Imam Mohammed inherited the struggle for dignity and economic justice through the African American saga and Islamic influence woven into the history of American Blacks both before and after slavery. He led millions of Americans to true Islam, dispelling false notions of race and religion to make his Community a new world leader for the proper understanding and practice of Al-Islam.
The TSP Scholarship Award is established in honor of the late Imam Thomas Abdul Salaam, founder of the American Muslim 360 Radio Broadcasting Network and the national nonprofit resource and intelligentsia network, the Community Wide Shuraa Conference, Inc.
Imam Thomas was widely respected and affectionately known as the Twin Servant of Peace who responded to the call of Imam Dr. W. Deen Mohammed (1933-2008 R), who challenged the Muslim community to open up lines of communication within its group intellect. Imam Thomas got busy undertaking a daunting task requiring initial and sustained capital investment and even greater faith to create real-time pathways to not only connect an entire community, but he would indeed give them a national voice and a way to share ideas and engage in productive dialogue as never before.
Both Sister Haseena and Aliyah typify the faith-based scholarship, leadership, and character excellence the CWSC Scholarship Program seeks to recognize, support, and inspire in future leaders. Stay tuned for full press release, the award-winning essays, and special broadcast interviews with both awardees on the CWSC Friday Roundtable at AM360.org.
