The audience will be given 30 minutes to speak on the subject.

Brother Muhammed Samateh leader of the AUC-MSA will read the names of Muslim women, men and children who have lost their lives due to domestic violence.  Imam Muhammad Mendes will close the program with remarks.

This event began four years ago when Assiya Hassan co-founder of Bridges TV was brutally murdered by her husband Muzzammil Hassan at the main office of the station in Orchid Park, New York.  This high profile case made it to the international cable news station CNN. The CNN broadcast helped make the reality of domestic abuse in the Islamic community and the world very plain to all. The Hassan’s were well educated, successful and highly admired professionals in their immediate community and in the Islamic community nationwide. Not the people most of us would think would be so negatively impacted by domestic abuse. However they were and so were we all.

The event is free and open to the public. Everyone is asked to invite friends, relatives, wear purple and come prepare to reflect on the issue of domestic violence and be inspired to leave ready to take action in their homes, schools and other areas of their community. The Baitul Salaam organization is making a PowerPoint presentation titled “Finding Peace in the American Muslim Family,” available to all who want it. Just email your request to
