UMM 11th Annual Banquet

Chairman's Message
Dear Friends, As Salaam Alaikum (Peace be unto you)

I am writing to you to invite you to join United Muslim Masjid at its 11th Annual Awards Banquet and Fundraiser at the historic Holiday Inn, 4th and Arch St., Philadelphia on Saturday August 25 2007 at 6:00 PM

United Muslim Movement, Inc (UMM) opened its first mosque on October 11, 1994 at 810 South 15th street in Philadelphia. The mosque was developed after a group of individuals approached Kenny Gamble aka Luqman Abdul-Haqq of Philadelphia International Records recording fame about using a building in which to establish prayer. The mosque was filled to capacity at the first Friday prayer service. In 1995, the mosque was expanded into 808 South 15th street. Although the capacity was doubled to hold about 350 people, the Masjid was filled to capacity at the first Friday prayer service after the expansion.

UMM is comprised of excellent people who have created a wonderful Muslim community in the heart of South Philly.

Please join CAIR-PA Board members in supporting this outstanding Muslim community.

Iftekhar Hussain
Chairperson, CAIR-PA Philadelphia Chapter
