Happy Birthday AMERICA!!! From Your Fellow American-Muslim

The Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center joins our fellow Americans as we celebrate the birth of our nation, July 4th 1776. 
Morocco was the first country to recognize the United States of America and became an ally protecting ships off the coast of Africa during the Barbary Coast Wars.

As Muslims we believe that our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, were influenced by the concept of freedom of religion by the treaty of Medina giving full citizenship to all, independent of their faith and affirmation in the Holy Quran stating “Let there be no compulsion in Religion”.  

The first amendment of our constitution remains a beacon of hope to the world. This Wednesday, July 6th millions of American Muslims will celebrate the feast of the end of Ramadan, in peace and freedom.

We celebrate today knowing that Muslims played a leading role in the founding of our nation. 

Eid Mubarak and Happy Independence Day America!!!
