The Philosophy of Imam W. Deen Mohammed(video)
Imam Mohammed’s vision for establishing the growth of Muslim community life in America parallels the example of how Prophet Muhammed established and cultivated the growth of Muslim community life in Medina – The City of Light. After the Muslim migration from Mecca because of the horrific persecution of Muslims there, Prophet Muhammed’s successful efforts there, became an obligation of all Muslims to establish community life. This is the direction of the school of thought of Imam W. Deen Mohammed in America.
Paraphrasing Imam Mohammed: We cannot be satisfied in our soul as community man, until we establish community life in America. We cannot fulfill our religious life in America, until we have a piece of geography, a physical piece of geography in the United States of America. Muslims in America must have that physical piece of land and our own Mosques and schools, and hospitals, clinics, businesses, banks. The neighborhood must be managed by Muslims. We must call the time for Adthan on our own jobs. We must regulate the industry to accommodate our spiritual life. No one else can do it for us as Muslims.
At the 1997 Islamic Convention Jumu’ah, Imam Mohammed laid out the irrefutable strategy for Muslim community life in America. If we honestly examine the activities of other Muslim groups in America, we’d have to come to the conclusion that they took Imam Mohammed’s advice and are implementing his strategy, especially since September 11, 2001.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,......continued by clicking here or on the title link above.
