I’m kind of a Mo Amer fan. I have seen two of his standup specials, and recently I watched the first season of Mo on Netflix. I enjoyed it. It’s funny; the characters were realistic and likable; it was easy to watch the whole season in a day or two. It’s easy to relate to their experiences, although sometimes it’s hard to watch – watching the family face the anxiety of their immigration status as asylees
Impact litigation is one of MLFA’s major strategies. In addition to trying to win each individual case, we work for long-term change, attempting to affect the underlying laws and policies.
Our MLFA-funded Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America (CLCMA) has been recognized and referenced by the legal community for our experience and expertise on Watchlist-related cases.
Our brand is changing.
MLFA has been serving the Muslim community faithfully since 2001. As the world evolves, so do we. In 2022, we are turning over a new leaf. Our brand is changing with us.
Originally, MLFA funded cases one at a time. This case-funding model helped us understand the cases and the issues. However, over time, we looked for ways to conserve time, money, and other resources.
I arrived at Friday prayers, thirsty. I felt like I was in the desert. People were fighting, including me. Things were falling apart. My heart was so sore; I could feel it aching in my chest. Part of me wanted to hide under a rock, but another part of me knew I should take my sore heart to the masjid.
Islam is about generosity. One translation of line 5 of Surah Infitar goes like this: “A soul will know what it has given and what it has held back.” (Quran 82:5).
Giving charity is not only encouraged – as we know, it’s required as one of the 5 pillars of Islam. Withholding or a lack of charitableness is almost sinful.
