US Muslim Woman Offers Prayer at Presidential Inauguration for First Time

0 67

Debbie Almontaser is set to make history Thursday as the first Muslim American woman to offer a prayer at the traditional presidential inauguration service.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Almontaser, a community activist of Yemeni descent, shared the news on Twitter earlier today.

“The stay tuned announcement dropped today! It’s an honor for me as the 1st Yemeni American woman to have been invited to offer an inaugural prayer! This is an affirmation of the Yemeni community and its suffering under the #MuslimBan.”

Almontaser is an American schoolteacher and community activist. She was the founding principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy, a New York Arab-themed public school, named after the Christian Arab poet Khalil Gibran.
