Ayesha K. Mustafaa has been editor of the Muslim Journal weekly newspaper since January, 1989. She is a graduate of Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Penn., with a BA Degree and Double Major in Psychology and Political Science.

Ayesha is a Muslim convert and comes from a Mississippi family of Civil Rights activists of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. era. She joined the community of Muslims in affiliation with Imam W. Deen Mohammed, the son of Elijah Muhammad and mentor to Malcolm X, in late 1974, through the Atlanta, Ga., Muslim Community. Since, mid 1975, she worked throughout the Muslim community offices in Chicago, Illinois, prior to becoming Editor of the Muslim Journal.

Most significant among those years was her work with the Prison Dawah or Islamic teachings to the incarcerated populations, prison services being part of her concentration as an undergraduate. She worked in the administrative offices of Muhammad Mosque No. 2 and the Sis. Clara Muhammad School and the Muslim Women Development Class and a brief period at the Muhammad Speaks plant on Federal Street. She was named led Instructress for the Muslim Sisters trained by Imam W. Deen Mohammed to teach Al-Islam. Coming to Chicago, she was a major transcriber of Imam Mohammed’s lectures that were used to create the Imams Kits that trained former Nation of Islam Ministers and Captains on the role of being an Imam, a time which she calls her “greatest learning experience.”

Ayesha also has traveled as part of delegations led by Imam W. Deen Mohammed, several times going to Saudi Arabia, to Jerusalem and the West Bank, most notable during this trip was the meeting between Imam Mohammed and President Yasser Arafat. She was a presenter at the 3-day International Media Conference, hosted by the Focolare Movement’s NetOne Media Group held in Rome, Italy, in 2004. She made Hajj to Mecca in 1977, a part of the first and then largest Muslim American group led on Hajj by Imam W. Deen Mohammed.

Ayesha was host of one of the seven daily one-hour talk radio shows – every Friday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. – for Radio Islam (live streamed at, produced by Sound Vision Foundation, on WCEV 1450 AM in the Chicago area. Ayesha was an advisory member of the Lutheran College Christian – Muslim Peace Engagement. She is a frequent speaker at interfaith settings and to school/college audiences.

Ayesha was named the Muslim Woman of the Year by the Community of Imam W. Deen Mohammed in 1994. A Street in New Medinah, Miss., was named in her honor at New Medinah’s 25th Annual Retreat of 2011. She is the mother of 4, grandmother of 4 and an advocate for foster parenting.
