Following Wednesday night's meeting, a Town Hall gathering to address Drugs, Depression and Suicide will be held at the Islamic House of Wisdom Soon!

A good number of imams, university professors, psychologists, medical doctors, city officials and community activists answered Imam Elahi's call for an urgent meeting to organize an educational Town Hall Meeting addressing the struggles and suffering of our youth.

The participants enriched the discussion with their wealth of information, expertise, experiences, suggestions and preparation to do all it takes to be part of a support system and awakening movement in the community.

The participants focused on mental issues, depression, prescribed drugs issues, the suicide tsunami and related social,moral and spiritual threats.

The group emphasized on the importance of participation of the community's youth in this new movement! 

The participants fixed Monday, April 25th at 6 pm to meet again to finalize some details of the Town Hall meeting.

During The Town Hall, a candlelight vigil for the recent victims of depression and mental health problems will be held!

Please take advantage of this momentum and help us with your ideas, time and talent!Promise and perform please! It's about commitment and action, not claim!

We are so grateful to all, especially the heartbroken family of Nader Mohammad Hage who shared the painful experience of their son death with IHW guests!

Christian delegation from Arizona attended the Friday prayer at IHW-

This is one of the blessings to receive even the non-Muslims who are thirsty of truth to attend the Friday prayers.

Last Friday, a group of sincere sisters and brothers from an Arizona church attended IHW's Friday prayer and sermons. Following the prayer they joined the imam Elahi in his office for more than an hour of conversation, questions and answers. The guests were extremely impressed with the mosque humble and heartfelt welcoming and hospitality.

Last Wednesday's Meeting of West Detroit's Civic Association

The group held their annual meeting at the Islamic House of Wisdom to discuss ways to improve the West Detroit neighborhoods. Representatives of the association, some elected officials and representatives of the police department participated in the meeting. The group chose to meet at the Islamic House of Wisdom because of its safe, accessible and open atmosphere. We admire the willingness and initiatives taken by the civic association to improve our neighboring communities.
