A Letter from Our Editor Sis. Ayesha K. Mustafa
October 2015, Muslim Journal entered its 40th year of continuous weekly publication, standing up on the legacy of those in the struggle to sustain an informed reading public. The first African American newspapers were the Freedom’s Journal published by editors John B. Russwurm and Samuel E. Cornish in 1827, and the directive newspaper, The North Star, published by the ex-slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass in 1847.
Muslim Journal brings forth the mantle passed on by Al Hajji Malcolm X Shabazz, as he represented the Hon. Elijah Muhammad in the creation of the historic Muhammad Speaks newspaper. And now it echoes the independent and progressive Muslim American voice established by Imam W. Deen Mohammed, son of Elijah Muhammad and mentor to Malcolm.
Muslim Journal addresses the misinformation about Muslims, historically, at home and abroad. Its
masthead reads: “Bringing humanity together with truth and understanding.” Its working mantra: “Fill the Void” and “See The Full Picture!” As advocated by Imam W. Deen Mohammed, Muslim Journal is a free press uninhibited by government yet operating within the protections of the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Imam Mohammed said, “While we have the freedom of choices, always choose the BEST among choices….”
The Muslim population of the U.S., projected to be around 12 million, is a diverse ethnic group representing many national origins. Muslim Journal pledges to be representative to all Muslims. The Muslim American is a politically active constituency with two of its adherents winning re-elections to the U.S. Congress (albeit with a majority non-Muslim voting population) – first Keith Ellison representing Minnesota and then Andre Carson representing Indiana.
Muslim Journal is a member newspaper in the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), a
network of over 200 African American owned newspapers in the U.S. The NNPA’s target market audience has buying power of $572.1 billion; this coupled with the buying power of 12 million Muslim Americans puts
Muslim Journal in the midst of two giant consumer streams.
Muslim Journal is circulated via paid subscribers and a network of vendors in 175 cities and towns
throughout the U.S. Its subscribers encompass the Caribbean and countries like Saudi Arabia, Malaysia,
Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal and South Africa. They are individuals and institution representatives, embassies, congressional offices, libraries, prison institutions, military institutions and schools.
Muslim Journal celebrates with Muslims and non-Muslims its Annual “A Time To Be Grateful” Awards
Dinner: Memphis, Tenn. (2014), South Hampton, Bermuda (2013), Atlanta, Ga. (2012), Washington, D.C. (2011), Louisville, Kentucky (2010) and Newark, N.J. (2009). The celebration’s first five years were held in Chicago, Illinois, with Imam W. Deen Mohammed as its first Keynote Speaker. This celebration has honored great legacies: Muhammad Ali and the Muhammad Ali Center, the pioneering Muslims in Washington, D.C., the Muslim institutions of learning – Clara Muhammad Elementary and W. Deen Mohammed High School of Atlanta, and in Bermuda, we were joined by the Freedom Riders’ legend Ms. Diane Nash, and in Memphis the Civil Rights heroes. Former President Jimmy Carter was asked by one in the audience of “immigrant-based Muslims,” how should they address discrimination. His reply, “Study the African American.” Thus the 13th
Annual celebration in Kansas City, Missouri theme is “Strengthening our Islamic Foundation and Family Life in the Heartland of America”

On behalf of Al- Inshirah Islamic Center’s Capital Campaign fundraising committee, I am very excited to personally invite you to this year’s “Ramadan: The Time is Now, Spend on Your Soul” Award and Fundraiser Event on Saturday, June 28, 2014
We are asking for your help in these great works as we look to expand. Our obligation as servants to Allah is to be the model Islamic facility that promotes peace, well being and faith principles. We can’t do it alone though. Your support is greatly appreciated and your presence is a blessing! Unity is the only thing that can assure that we can reach our goals and our destination.
“Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times? It is Allah that gives (you) want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return.” Quran (Surah Al Baqarah 2:245)
Preparing for Ramadan
By Imam Bilal Hazziez
It is not how much or how long you can fast, it is how well you can follow the guidance of Allah. In the Holy Quran Allah says; “Fasting is for Him.” Almost the whole life of the animal world is ruled over by the drive to overcome hunger. That is the drive of the flesh for something to satisfy the flesh. If you can control that very powerful drive, it not only gives you the power to withstand the flesh, but it helps you in every way because everything in the universe is related. The body affects the mind, the mind affects the body, morality is affected-all these things influence each other.
The power of hunger drives animal and the human being to kill and to eat other animals. Yet Muslim men and women live with that hunger, denies it, and moves about peacefully without grumbling. It drives an animal mad, but the Muslim is spiritual and happy containing it. With the hunger that drives the world mad the Muslim acts as though he is in heaven. Allah is telling you if you fast the way He attended for you will gain a supreme reward.
