Just finished up at the National Mall & the George Mason memorial.

Joined a wonderful team of about 30 people from an interfaith background to clean up our nation’s capitol.

Thank you to @MuslimYouthUSA for coordinating!

Now let’s end this #GovShutDown
Some tweet me, "Dont clean the Nat'l parks b/c its 45's injustice & he should be liable"

But Qur'an 5:9 instead says: "Let not a people’s enmity incite you to act otherwise than with justice. Be always just, that is nearer to righteousness."

A Muslim must never abandon justice.
Islam teaches that service to humanity is the greatest form of worship.

Prophet Muhammad (sa) said, "He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while his neighbor goes hungry.”

Failing humanity means failing our faith. We serve to please God & b/c it's right—not for a reward.
Washington Post journalist @Rachel_Chason met us st 8am this morning & spent hours capturing our efforts to clean up Washington DC

Great to see MSM take the time to report these positive & sincere narratives of American Muslims✊🏽

And @MuslimYouthUSA is on the front page of reddit for our clean up of Washington DC this morning.✊🏽

I wanna be clear about two things:
1) We’ve been doing this work to serve our country for decades & decades, and

2) Y’all ain’t seen nothin yet!😉

Great piece in @Newsweek about @MuslimYouthUSA jumping into action to keep our national parks clean.

What I love about this story is its Muslims and non-Muslims —AMERICANS— working together to improve our nation.

Unity makes us great.
