Jacksonville City Council – Invocation offered by Br. Mobeen
Jacksonville City Council had its first meeting of 2017 on Tuesday, January 10th at 5:00 pm at the City Hall. Dr. Mobeen Rathore, who had been invited by the City Council, gave Invocation at the start of the meeting. What a blessing it was to have translation of Al-Fateha and other prayers for guidance of our country’s leaders offered by a Muslim with humility. May Allah SWT accept Br. Mobeen’s prayers and reward him for being such a good representative of our community. Ameen.

For the sake of record, Br. Mobeen was the second Muslim in the history of Jacksonville who was invited to offer invocation at a meeting of the Jacksonville City Council. A few years ago, Imam Enrique Rasheed, who was Imam of the Masjid on Commonwealth Ave at the time was the first Muslim to offer Invocation at such a meeting. Imam Rasheed now lives in California.
