The Ugandan Muslim community in the USA is emulating other Ugandan groups that have been holding annual conventions by starting up their own convention.
And this October, the Uganda Muslim fraternity living in the United States under their umbrella body Uganda American Muslim Association (UAMA), has decided to organize the Muslim Convention 2022.
Ugandan Muslim youths in Boston, under the leadership of Sheikh Qudra Mbazira, will be the hosts of this year’s Muslim convention, which will run on the theme; ‘Re-invent and Re-energize’.
According to the organizers, this year’s convention is aimed at discussing various challenges and the top on the agenda is establishing a Central Prayer Center that will be the main mosque, which is aimed at eradicating the practice of conducting Juma prayers in Hotels, bars and University premises.
“Among the great deeds prophet Muhammad pbh emphasized to his companions when he settled to the city of Madina was to create peace amongst themselves. And the most used salutations in Islam is all about peace,” said Sheikh Qudra Mbazira.
