I’m fund raising because I have 0 funds coming in. I’ve been supported as an Islamic artist (essayist/poet) for 26 years by a generous donor, after suffering an on the job serious injury. He believed in my works of scholarship and art, and he took my injury as a sign from God that I should focus. I’m presently 76 years old. He disappeared suddenly last month on the eve of my usual yearly January stipend. Ya Allah. Allah Is The Provider, and I pray that my spiritual son is well and safe. 

I’ve written many poems, essays, and books. You can view my biography on the video I posted. I just finished an artistic rendering of a Muslim Prayer Book, And a biography of Prophet Muhammad's  Meccan mission in rhyme. Everything I write is a one-of-a-kind unique work of scholarship and art. I’ll post some examples of that work on my FB page.

And You can sample some of my audio works of scholarship, and art on my SoundCloud Page.

The plan for 2024 was to raise enough funds to initiate a vigorous GrassRoots Calling project that we call AlMuqeemoonasSalat... The Prayer Establishers’ Project. Without a doubt, folks seriously need to be reminded of the vital importance of, and continual encouragement to,  attend daily Salat in Congregation. I still intend on carrying on this mission. We've never needed much to stay afloat, brothers and sisters. But at the moment we're in trouble. Please help us continue to seamlessly follow the plan. Allah Bless Your Generosity.
