“Building the Community and Family”

By Imam W. Deen Mohammed

(The article was first printed in the December 5, 1997 edition of the Muslim Journal newspaper)

“Community is the focus for us, and what I see as the most important thing to start with in building a community is the establishment of a nucleus.  A Muslim community is established to accommodate the lives of people who believe and worship G’d (Allah).  Every community will have a house of worship (or many).”“Communities are built to accommodate the needs of the family.  The first need outside of the home is to have a school to educate our children.  Then the community wants to have a township, ordinances, rules and regulations.  After a while you will have many jobs and somebody regulating the town, which means government.  This is the traditional pattern.”
