We are pleased to announce the launch of the Sakinah Network of Imams and Chaplains. This is a network of imams and chaplains collaborating to foster strong Muslim families, stop family violence, protect our children from neglect and broken homes, and our youth from drugs, gangs, and sex-trafficking. Check out the network’s website. Invite your imams and chaplains to join this network.
On the Road to Sakinah
Our collaborative social media campaign with #MyJihad is going on the entire month of March. The campaign is focused on reclaiming our Prophet's peaceful example for Muslim families. Alhamdulillah, we have reached thousands of people in less than two weeks. We're asking community members to tweet pictures of themselves with #MyJihad posters. More details and free posters here.
On April 5th, Imam Abbas Ahmed of the Cleveland First Mosque and Attorney Yusra Gomaa, Guardian ad Litem with CASA-Ohio, will take part in a national webinar organized by Project Sakinah on the need for Muslim foster parents. Please click here for more details.

“We need to understand what
Islam is calling for in terms of family communication, raising children and dealing
with children especially with teenage children. We know families go through stress
and hard times but the solution to it is communications – Communication between
the parents, communication between the parents and children. That’s the way
to solve the problem.” - Hazem Gheith, MAS
