The Uganda American Muslim Association (UAMA) is a charitable, religious organization, founded in 2007, composed of Muslims who seek to bring together Muslim brothers and sisters living in the United States and abroad; to encourage them to develop their faith, to interpret life from an Islamic perspective, to commit to Allah, and to develop traits of Muslim character and service and; to encourage Islamic oriented social activities; in settings such as seminars, conferences, forums, etc. through which members can meet, grow and gain strength.
One of the primary goals of UAMA is to encourage its members’ belief, social, cultural, economic, and intellectual development in accordance with the teachings of Islam as outlined in the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad (SAW).
Asalaam Aleikum. As we begin this auspicious and blessing filled month of Ramathan, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all members of UAMA, well wishers, friends and Muslims across the whole world a safe and peaceful month of Ramathan.
Fasting is one of the obligations we have as Muslims and one that is meant to not only bring us closer to Allah, but also closer to each other as we collectively appreciate our differences yet still work together as we look to please Allah.
I ask that rather than over indulging in the festivities of Suhur and Iftar, we instead over indulge in the doing of charity, the helping of each other and that as we break our fast, we remember those that don't have the luxury of a single meal.
I ask that we commit all Muslims into prayer during this month, mostly those suffering from wars, famine and persecution. I again wish every one a peacefull and blessed month of Ramathan.
Sincerely Br. Ibrahim k Magoola, Board Chairman
