MCWS HIRES NEW YOUTH DIRECTOR - BR. OSAMA ODEH

    MCWS NEW YOUTH DIRECTOR - BR. OSAMA ODEH
Alhamdollila, by the GRACE of ALLAH (SWT), MCWS is pleased to announce that Osama Odeh will be the official Youth Director of MCWS starting April 2014.
On behalf of our Board and Community, we like to congratulate Osama and his family. May ALLAH (SWT) bless Osama with guidance and strength to be a role model for our Youth in bringing them more closer to ALLAH (SWT).
OSAMA'S BRIEF PROFILE -
A long time resident of Canton, Osama grew up in an Arab American family with Palestinian roots. Seeking higher education, his father and mother, Hassan Odeh and Yamamah Sawalha moved to the United States where they established themselves in 1990. In 2001 they settled in Plymouth, Michigan where they have remained since.
Osama began attending Islamic Schools from a very young age. He was a student at Huda School, Crescent Academy, and later graduated from Canton High School in 2009. In 2013 Osama graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in Biological Sciences.
As a child, Osama's mother would emphasize a powerful religious foundation. Anse Yamamah is a known teacher of the religion in Palestine. Throughout his youth, she would spend extra hours daily after school tutoring him in formal Arabic, Quran memorization, and in studies of Islamic History. In his college years, Osama found a passion for religious education and community development. He became the president of the Muslim Community at Wayne State and a mentor for youth in the Canton Community. Focused on building a vibrant Muslim community with pure ideals, he would work at teaching youth and guiding them, through being a teacher at the Sunnah Saturday program, as well as weekly halaqas for high school boys.
Osama is currently enrolled in an MPH program at Wayne State University. Apart from classes at Wayne State, Osama studies at the hands of Muslim scholars privately in multiple sciences including Quran and Law. He hopes to continue his education while serving as a Youth Director, in hopes of fostering healthy and vibrant families and communities.

On behalf of the MCWS Board of Directors, Imam and Trustees:
'The Muslim Community of the Western Suburbs, like the rest of our Nation, has been saddened and horrified by the recent events in Boston.

We are committed to countering extremist ideology of any kind and we will continue to promote a message of peace through faith in God and through our services, sermons, programming, and activities. We encourage the community of the Western Suburbs to work with us in this mission to promote communal, familial, and individual peace. May God have mercy on all of us and may he keep us all safe from harm.'

When:Sunday, January 27, 3:30 pm
Where:MCWS/Crescent Academy Gym
If you are still weighing all the options for high school, that there is an informal meeting, this Sunday,Jan 27th, in the MCWS/Crescent Academy Gym at3:30pm.
The following schools will be represented and either a parent and/or students will give us their personal reasons for choosing a particular program, as well as their positive/negative experiences with the schools thus far:

PCEP - STEM program
Washtenaw International High School or "WI HI" (IB school in Yspi)
Arbor Prep (Charter High School in Yspi)

When: Tuesday May 15th, 2012 b/w Maghrib and Isha Prayers (Maghrib Starts at 9:00pm)

Profile:
Muhammed Emin Er (born c. 1910) is an Islamic scholar trained in the Ottoman tradition. A former student of Said Nursi, he is one of a very small number of such scholars still alive. He was chosen couple of years ago in a meeting in Pakistan as one of the 10 greatest Islamic scholars still alive. He was born in the Ottoman province of Diyarbakir.
Emin Er has published a large number of books in Arabic, focusing on the basic disciplines within Arabic linguistics (such as morphology, syntax, and logic), as well as more advanced disciplines (such as Islamic law, especially in relation to spiritual psychology). He has stated that a major goal of his scholarship is to adapt the traditional religious sciences of Islam to present-day needs and concerns.[1] Two of his books were translated into English; and some into Turkish.

To register, please email Nadia Husain (nadiahusain@gmail.com) by Fri. March 30.
Please volunteer to take part in spending the day giving back to the Canton Community by helping your elderly and disabled non-Muslim Canton neighbors. Canton Leisure Services has invited our muslim community again this year to participate in this community service project which entails volunteers to visit the homes of those in need and assist them in housework and home repairs. Alhumdulillah, last year, we had a large group of muslims volunteers that helped repair and rebuild 10 Canton homes...the organizers of this project are hoping to get that same type of contribution from our muslim community this year as well.
Both skilled and unskilled volunteers are needed. Skilled volunteers are needed for carpentry, electrical, plumbing, masonry, tree trimming, etc. Unskilled volunteers are needed for yard work, painting, and general clean up.
Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age. Shuttle vans will be provided to transport volunteers to the homes being repaired. A Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Please consider taking your family (individuals 15+ yrs. old, please) to do this charitable work: what a great way to give back to the community, perform our neighborly duties, and work side by side with your fellow Americans to help the needy!

Bone Marrow Registry Drive - March 19th 11a-3pm @ MCWS

    WHAT: BE THE MATCH! Bone Marrow Registry Drive
WHEN: Saturday March 19th, 2011 from 11AM to 3PM at MCWS (gym classrooms)
WHY: In memory of Bilal Mallick, to increase Asian and Arab samples in the registry, to save a life!
WHO: You must be 18 and above to participate in the registry (ALL IT REQUIRES IS A SIMPLE CHEEK SWAB)

DONATIONS: "Be the Match Foundation" is accepting donations to help cover the $100 cost to place each sample in the registry. Please donate whatever you can.

CONTACT: Shirin Khan at shirinkkhan@hotmail.com or Fatima Mallick at fasama1@yahoo.com

Here is a note from one of the volunteers of the Chicago bone marrow registry drives:

As we enter this weekend of multiple drives, let us remember back to our first one, last Thursday. We were so full of hope and promise that our beloved Bilal could be brought back to health, if it was Allah's will, with a bone marrow match. We did not know Allah's plan, but we believed we could work together to achieve something wonderful by His grace and mercy-and we were right. That night, 200 people pledged to save a life if required, because we asked them to. Let us ask again this weekend, and keep asking, because there are other children like Bilal, adults too, who are dearly loved by their families; without our commitment and vision for a community where we take care of each other, they may leave a hole that could never be filled, like our dearest Bilal. Allah has brought us something beautiful out of these sad days, the understanding that we have a part to play to take care of our brothers and sisters, those we have loved for a long time, and those we have not yet met.

TV Interview with Bilal's father, Tanveer Mallick: http://www.wgntv.com/news/wgntv-muslim-teen-bone-marrow-drive,0,5193837.story

The Muslim Community of Western Suburbs (MCWS)

Challenges Facing our Youth

By the Islamic Activist

We invite you and your children to attend this valuable lecture. A question and answer session will, in sha Allah, follow the lecture.
This lecture is for everyone.
