NYPD Reaches Out To Muslim Community During Ramadan

WNYC radio recently ran a piece on the NYPD’s outreach to Muslims during the month of Ramadan that also featured an interview with Detective Ahmed Nasser, president of the NYPD’s Muslim Officers Society(MOS).  Some of you might remember him from the Newsweek Cover Story on Islam in America that we did a couple of years ago.  He’s in the bottom left hand corner.

You can check out the entire interview on WNYC’s homepage by clicking here

Detective Nasser and the MOS represent a few thousand Muslims that find themselves in the ranks of the New York City Police Department.   I’ve been working there as a Chaplain since April of 2007 and it’s been a really interesting and beneficial experience for me to say the least, alhamdulillah.   I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with very amazing and unique individuals mashallah who every day are striving in their own personal ways to help a broader American Society understand Islam a little bit better.    Stories and experiences like that of Detective Nasser’s are not only important for us to read and hear, but also important for us to share.  Please do pass on to your own networks and friends.
