Dear MCWS Member,

We hope that this letter finds you well and safe by the grace & mercy of Allah (swt).


It is MCWS Board of Directors (Shura) election time again. The following shura members will be finishing
their term this year:
1) Br. Asif Hussain
2) Br. Maajed Huq
3) Br. Imran Jalal
4) Br. Khalid Waqhar

This opens four positions for elections with their term starting on January 1, 2021. Nominations for these positions are welcome at this time. Any of the four outgoing shura members can also be nominated again as they are eligible. Please find the nomination form enclosed with this letter. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, there are several ways that you can turn-in your nomination form this year. In all cases, a signed nomination form must be received by November 2, 2020. Any nomination form received after this date will not be considered.


1) Mail a signed nomination form to the address mentioned on the form.
2) Email a signed and scanned form to elections@mcws.org
3) Drop the signed form in the MCWS masjid library dropbox labeled 2021 Election Nominations Form Drop-off.

After the candidates get finalized, you will receive a ballot paper in the mail. Please look out for the envelope with a logo of the 2020 MCWS Election Committee. If you don’t receive your ballot on or before November 27, 2020, please call Br. Muthahir Jamali at 734-578-2951 or send an email to elections@mcws.org.


Important: The Election Committee will only allow names that appear on the latest MCWS membership list for candidacy and voting. Therefore, it is crucial to make sure your membership information is accurate and up-to-date. The list is available on MCWS Masjid bulletin board and on MCWS’s website. If your name is not on that list or any information is not correct, you have to call Br. Syed Arif at 313-805-2351 or email him at arif.syed2@gmail.com as soon as possible. If the list does not get corrected on time, you will not be able to run or vote during this year’s election.


Jazak Allahu Khairan and thank you for giving your time and participating in this important activity for our community.
