Muhsen's Mission Muhsen is a nonprofit umbrella organization serving children and adults with any intellectual, mental, or physical disability. Muhsen’s aim is to establish an inclusive and accessible environment for individuals with disabilities and their families. Muhsen will assume an active role to advocate and educate, conduct training, and implement programs and services across North America to improve the experience within mosques, conventions, related classes and events, as well as to engender a positive and welcoming community for persons with disabilities. Muhsen’s Vision Muhsen will strive to lead in creating a better understanding of Disabilities in our communities and building a better future for these “Special” People of Jannah, In shaa Allah where they are welcomed and all their needs are addressed as they are accepted by all. Who is Muhsen? “Launching a new organization & dream this weekend – Sh. Omar Suleiman” I am not the parent of a child with autism nor do I myself have a disability al hamdulila, but I grew up watching my mother (may Allah have mercy on her) struggle with hers. My mother, due to cancer and multiple strokes, for most of my life suffered from severe hearing loss and had a difficult time speaking amongst other medical issues. This caused me to be particularly sensitive to other kids in the Masjid who had disabilities. What I noticed though and still notice today is that Masjids do not accommodate properly for people with special needs. Many times I go to a city and parents with children in wheelchairs say their kids badly wanted to come but couldn’t get into the masjid. Even worse, parents with children who have autism email me saying that they wish they could attend but have to stay home with their child. Even I, when I served as Imam of Masjid Abu Bakr in New Orleans, mistakenly sent a child with autism home from Quran class not knowing his condition. So all of us need a change of attitude and need to do a better job remosque-ing this part of our Ummah. The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) deeply cared about including them in every activity possible. So a few years ago, I opened a word document on my computer and started brainstorming about how to form an organization that facilitates this beautiful Sunnah. I thought of a name that would reflect it’s Islamic roots while staying true to it’s mission. From that came the name M.U.H.S.E.N which means “One who shows excellence and compassion” and stands for Muslims Understanding & Helping Special Education Needs. A couple of years ago, sister Joohi Tahir and her husband Farhan joined my Hajj group and this dream started to become a reality. Joohi and Farhan have a daughter with Autism and have constantly struggled, as many Muslims do, with the lack of understanding and accommodations for people with special needs in Mosques across the country. But Joohi has for several years not been silent about it. She has joined panels around the country and written articles in an effort to spread awareness. I’m proud to say that she is the Executive Director of M.U.H.S.E.N and has done everything to make this happen. I have watched her put this entire project together and give her full credit.
