…”Words have power, and it’s how we use them that determines who we are. Imam W. D. Mohammed used the power of words to expand our minds, to have more than one dimensional thinking. He wanted us to see things on a global level…he taught us to study the creation, make the connection, and to take it to the logical conclusion, which is where our conceptual thinking will shine for all to see.”
--Moufatih Abbas Muhammad
NATIONAL― FAMACO Publishers and the Words Make People National Scholarship Committee congratulate Moufatih Abbas Muhammad, the 2014 recipient of the Words Make People Literary Excellence and Scholarship Award.
The Words Make People Literary Excellence & Scholarship Award is a national academic scholarship established in honor of American Muslim leader, humanitarian, and religious scholar, the late Honorable Imam Dr. W. Deen Mohammed. Imam Mohammed inherited the struggle for dignity and economic justice through the African American saga and Islamic influence woven into the history of American Blacks both before and after slavery. Part of the Imam’s legacy was his ability to inspire through the power of the written and spoken word; he stressed the important role that language and words whether in Scripture, higher education, or common communication, play in shaping critical thought and subsequent social, cultural, political, intellectual and moral expression.
This year's recipient typifies the faith-based scholarship, leadership, and character excellence the WMP Scholarship seeks to recognize, support, and inspire in our future leaders. Moufatih Muhammad is a college-bound 2014 honor graduate of the Clara Muhammad High School of Corona-Queens, New York...[Continue on to the full press release.
