Assalamu Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
I would like to extend my congratulations on a great event last Sunday December 20, 2015. The National Muslim Leadership Emergency Summit was a true success first and foremost by the blessings of Allah (SWT) and secondly because of its dedicated attendees. You responded to the call and come from all corners of the country, which is a clear manifestation of your care, commitment, and leadership to our community.
Thank you for your great discussion, active engagement, and productive participation. We had very challenging issues to address; they certainly were not easy. However, due to your sincere interest in tackling these tough issues, you turned the difficulties into prospects and the challenges into opportunities. The powerful responses and brave initiatives you came up with, truly defined your caliber and leadership. It is imperative and evident that we need to meet again to follow-up and measure our success. In the meantime, we will keep you updated on any progress.
We hope you were able to experience what the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) is all about: bringing American Muslim organizations together. Our mission is to open effective communication and coordination spectrums between all American Muslim organizations, to help solidify these mutually crucial relationships, and to create and sustain an urgent, collective sense of direction that well-serves the American Muslim community toward the betterment and guidance of our nation. There is no effort that ranks higher in priority for our organizations and our community today than the hard work of unity. Together, we can grasp the firmest handhold that never breaks. This is what USCMO aspires to and works for. We look forward to strengthening our community by having you join USCMO. Please click and download the application.
Thanks to the USCMO board and member organizations who immediately rose to the challenge and held several meetings to discuss and decide on the proper course of actions. Special thanks to ICNA leadership and members for the event preparation and organization. Thanks to CAIR for their expertise. Thanks to all of you for making it a successful summit.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity and express my deep gratitude for your cooperation and attentive presence. You have been wonderful participants and made my job easy. May Allah (SWT) bless you all.
