11/22/17: Hamtramck Interfaith Thanksgiving, an Inspiring Outreach and Bridge Building!

Hamtramck Interfaith Thanksgiving, an Inspiring Outreach and Bridge Building!
It was great to listen to so many officials, community and religious leaders. Honorable Judge Shakour address was very enlightening.
Imam Elahi made the closing words in which he thanked the Almighty for His Mercy and Wisdom. Everything in this universe is manifestation of His mercy and justice.
We thank Him for His gift of guidance, grace and for blessing us with Abraham, Muses, Jesus and Mohammad (pbut) to lead us to the straight path.
We thank God for our freedom, for our opportunities, and the ability of listening and learning from one another.
Imam Elahi mentioned that though the history of Thanksgiving is full of controversy, yet the concept of gratefulness is a common concept. The word of shokr or gratitude is mentioned in the Quran 75 times.
In conclusion, Imam Elahi expressed happiness that the butcher of Bosnia was brought to justice today and he prayed that soon the war criminals and butchers of Yemen (the evil aggressors of Saudi corrupt kingdom) and the criminals in Myanmar be taken to justice too.
Special Thank you to Br. Arif for bringing us together in such a magnificent meeting!
