Sister Noora’s Ramadan Story
NATIONAL ― Praise be to Allah (SWT) for the wonderful outpouring of support for the CWSC AM360 National Radio Telethon. We have raised to date $4,245 of our $10,000 goal.
Each day, we need to raise $714 to make our Telethon goal period including through the Eid, but the sooner we can meet the goal, the sooner we can return to regularly scheduled programming which helps so may believers in our community and beyond.
After you’ve finished reading, please hear our Sister Noora Amatullah Muhammad from Georgia who called our offices during the Blessed Month to share how important the work we’re accomplishing is to her. She’s one of our pioneers who like many, no longer has the ability for fast moving, even if they’re still fast thinking right on down to the modern times. Sister Noora is one of the reasons we work hard to serve you and our community everyday, and we’re asking you to help us. Tell us too if someone needs our free Personal Qur’an Reading Service. Then hear our Christian Sister Debbie on how important AM360 is to bridging racial and religious divides and CWSC Scholarship recipient, Najah Mateen, speaks on the importance of CWSC Scholarship Programs.

A Melodic Blessing: The AM360 Qari Contest
“After six years American Muslim 360 (AM360) is changing its opening prayer recitation and we want your help!”—American Muslim 360 Broadcasting
NATIONAL― As-Salaam-Alaikum (Peace be with you).
In Al-Islam, the human voice can be uplifting, melodic and inspiring as anyone familiar with the Adhan, the call to prayer for the faithful, can attest. In fact, from the call of prayer to the recitation of Qur’an in daily devotion, to religious services and ceremonies, the human voice and intellect go hand in hand with recitation of Al-Qur’an, the Final Scripture revealed to all humanity.
And the most often repeated verses are at the beginning of the Qur’an and serve as the most common opening supplication in moments both public and private. So too at AM360, the First Chapter of Qur’an entitled Al-Faitha, begins our morning and evening program segments. But now the time has come to replace the current Al-Fatiha recitation with a Qari’s recitation from a new group intellect…our AM360 listenership.
A Qari is a reciter of Qur’an who combines eloquence, melody and superior technical ability in the correct recitation of Qur’anic Arabyiyyah, the special language the Creator uses to speak to mankind’s intellect.
Beginning now through the Blessed Month of Ramadan, we’re asking you to call in and give us your best recitation of Al-Fatiha. Then at the end of Ramadan, we’ll ask our listenership to help us select the new recitation that will commence our programming each day.
It’s easy to participate. Just call into our corporate offices at (910) 317-0297 and record your recitation right on our voice mail. You’ll need a quiet area for best quality. Make sure you’ve got a strong signal for cordless and smartphones. Speak directly into the phone (no speaker phones please) at your normal voice level. If you err and need to make a correction, simply stop and restart, you need not hangup. BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME, CITY & STATE, EMAIL and TELEPHONE.
The AM360 CEO and Executive Producer will select the top five. Then we’ll ask our AM360 listenership to select the recitation they believe should become our new opening AM360 programming recital.
Submissions will be accepted through July 7, 2016. The selected Qari will be announced on air by the AM360 CEO. Lift your voice and let it resound with Al-Faitha at American Muslim 360…together we can remake the world. Ramadan Mubarak!
