Dr. Ali Ajami, the former ambassador of Lebanon and an active community member in Dearborn, visited IHW and met imam Elahi, inviting him to attend the first conference in education to be held at Universal Academy in March.


In an hour long conversation about education, culture, language, community youth, the deadly threat of drugs, and other social problems, imam Elahi admired Universal Academy under the leadership of honorable hajja Nawal Hamadeh and expressed his support for this great initiative

The conversation focused on the central role of education in our current world and the fact that any success, prosperity and progress depend on high learning and education.

Through knowledge we learn about ourselves and our universe and that guides us to God, Who is the origin and the end of both man and the world.

Imam Elahi also emphasized on the importance of interfaith specially for the Muslim community in the Western World and asked Dr. Ajami to hold some community meetings promoting dialogue and understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims. 

Imam briefed Ostad Ajami of the inspiring experience of his participation in the recent international interfaith conference in Seoul

Points From Imam Elahi's Discussion with the Jackson University Students!


The Holy Quran is a Book of Dialogue, Interfaith and Outreach!

Though the Quran is in Arabic language, it’s mission and audience are universal!



Prophet Mohammad was a Messenger of Mercy for Mankind!

Islam is a religion of reason, knowledge, spiritual struggle for purity of soul, responsibility, faith and action!

Islam promotes peace, compassion, forgiveness, reconciliation and love, yet the foundation is justice and truth!

Islamophobia is a disease that is hurting not only Islam and the Muslims but America and the world!

The criminal groups like isis have been supported by the same forces which support Islamophobia!

The Quran honors Jesus and Mary over 70 times!

Mary is the only lady mentioned by name in the Quran!

There is no room for racism in our faith!

Diversity is a Divine desire, it was possible for God to make us all the same and with one religion, but He made us different so we know one another!

Knowledge is the key for success, civilization and salvation!

In a turning point memorial service for DEARBORN late journalist, the editor of Al-Sabeel magazine marhoom Mohammad Jaber, a big number of community religious, cultural, political and legal leaders gathered at IHW to express condolences to the Jaber family, sharing their memories of Mohammad’s life!

The passionate and inspiring speaker of the memorial services included Judge Sam Salame, Osama Siblini, Adnan Beydoun, Kamil Bazzi, Zouheir Alawieh and Sara Jaber.

At the end Imam Elahi addressed the audience and prayed for deceased’s soul and spoke about the power of journalism in enlightenment of societies and making a difference in the social and political environments.

Imam mentioned that the media is mightier than military's since it’s dealing with the people’s souls not just the soldiers. This is why the corporations do their best to control the corresponding networks to mislead the people for the sake of their greedy purposes!

While the media machine usually operates as a business, exchanging its independence and freedom with money and politics, there are so many courageous, dignified and heroic journalists who travel to the most turbulent and tragic parts of the world, risk their lives and sacrifice all they have to speak for the victims of injustice and to share the truth with those who live in the darkness of ignorance and propaganda!

Imam referred to some famous writers including Oliver Stone and his most honest three minutes speech during an Award ceremony of “the Writers Guild of America” in 2017.

Honoring personality and professional journalism and service of late Mohammad Jaber, the imam asked the community to show support for their servants before they mourn their departure!

Now that sadly Al-Sabeel magazine is gone, let’s appreciate another great weekly paper still serving significantly, it’s called “Arab American News” under the leadership of Ostad Osama Siblini!

Imam Elahi added that despite of looking at national publications such as NYT and Washington Post almost every day, yet every Friday morning while getting ready for Friday prayer he looks at AAN and would find so many interesting local and international articles and very beneficial subjects.

Imam said it’s true that sometime AAN publishes controversial issues which might be part of media nature or human imperfections but looking at the amount of hard work and dedication behind this great service, we should honor Mr. Osama Siblani and his staff for advocating a good direction for our community and country!
