CWSC at U.N. Global Drug Policy Special Assembly Session
The President recently departed Atlanta, Georgia after attending National Prescription & Drug Abuse to deal with the opiate, heroin and prescription medicine national epidemic abuse.
But the President can’t do it alone. He needs you and me to help remake the world. What can you do?
1. Join the CWSC in getting involved. First, if you’re an institution, become an endorsing organization for the CWSC Resolution published for the United Nations Global Drug Abuse Special Assembly Session in New York April 8-21. The CWSC will have a delegation in attendance as we partner with the faith-based consortium, Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference to have our group intellect voices speak from a Qur’anic-based and global human concern perspective.
2. If you’re in the New York area on April 18, join the CWSC delegation at a local community outreach session sponsored by the U.N. at the historic Abyssinia Baptist Church (established 1801) led at one time by Honorable Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Come out @ 6:30 p.m. to:

Meet CWSC Delegation leader, Dr. Aisha Kareem, the CEO of American Muslim 360 and Senior Advisor to the CWSC, and Imam Abdul Azeez, Director for CWSC Intrafaith Relations and host of AM360’s Maiya Ali Kulli Hai.
Tell your masjid, other faith and civic organizations and family and friends to be represented in this group intellect to help address a scourge affecting communities across the U.S. and presenting a challenge to all working to make our world a better place.
3. Read the CWSC U.N. Resolution and email in your individual endorsing comments. We’ll begin collecting them to help galvanize greater effort to help fight a growing national substance abuse problem that has tentacles in other social justice issues.
4. Stay tuned as believers inside the CWSC with this specific focus and concern organize nationally to exert our intellectual resources to make a difference. Time to remake the world!
AM360’s New Executive Producer joins others in Bayah…
“We require a degree of integrity from those we will entrust with leadership…We look for principle and broad-mindedness., bigheartedness, kindness, and love for everybody from those who seek public office along with the qualifications he/she would need to do the practical job.”—Imam W. Deen Mohammed
Mustafa Mujahid was recently announced as new executive producer at AM360. Well Sunday, three CWSC volunteers including Mustafa, officially assumed the duties of their offices of leadership with the CWSC Oath, with each receiving letters of appointment and giving the bayah (pledge of allegiance) to uphold the highest standards of performance and excellence in service to the Community. Preceded by comments from CWSC’s Executive Director, Mukhtar Muhammad, the oaths recited included the following statements: “All reverence, all worship, all sanctity are due to Allah. Peace be upon you O Prophet and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings. Peace be on us and all the righteous servants of Allah. I bear witness that none is deserving of worship except Allah and I bear witness that Mohammed is His Servant and Messenger.”
Oath of Office:
I [name] in accordance with the applicable laws of the State of North Carolina and the United States, do accept appointment as [Title of Office] for the Community Wide Shuraa Conference in service to the Believers. I solemnly affirm before Allah (SWT) and before the believers present as witnesses, that I will fulfill my duties and obligations as both a leader and follower and that I will faithfully discharge the duties and responsibilities assumed to the best of my ability.” Congratulations to Mustafa Mujahid, AM360 Interim Executive Producer; Dr. Aisha Kareem, Chief Executive Officer for AM360 and Martha Nailah William, CWSC’s Corporate Secretary.
The oaths were recited during the CWSC 4th Sunday National Teleconference. We ask for prayers for the believers and their families and that Allah (SWT) will accept their service and aid them in carrying out their responsibilities.
Stay tuned to AM360 and the CWSC Townhall Central website.
