About Congressman André Carson
Congressman André Carson was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in early 2008 as part of a special election and was reelected again in 2010, 2012, and 2014. He is the second Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress.
Congressman Carson serves on the House Transportation Committee and is a ranking member on the Subcommittee on Economic Development. His areas of focus include domestic use of drones, maintaining and improving aviation safety and developing intelligent transportation and high speed rail.
In January 2015, the Congressman was chosen to serve on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence by Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. He is the first Muslim American to ever do so and will work to facilitate better coordination between state and local governments and the intelligence community, privacy regulations and countering violent extremism. Most recently, the Protecting Cyber Networks Act passed which included an amendment he authored to strengthen transparency into information sharing between the private sector and government.
Congressman Carson will continue to work for legislation to strengthen our schools and provide a better education for our kids. In March, he introduced the Young Americans Financial Literacy Act - a bill that seeks to promote the development of effective financial literacy curricula and educational models for students ages 8-24.

Classes With Imam Tahir Anwar

Announcement posted on Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Rooted in Faith

A Weekly Discussion Series | Every Thursday at 7:30pm

Too often are we distracted by topics in life that do not concern God. Such seemingly meaningless distractions can, overtime, become destructive to one’s spiritual health. This weekly discussion series aims to orient one’s internal compass towards God. Covering a variety of topics (including current events, day to day fiqh questions, hadith, etc), Imam Tahir Anwar will discuss the primary goal of a Muslim: How to become rooted in faith in order to become closer to God.

Quranic Tafsir (Sisters Only)

A Weekly Tafsir of Selected Surahs | Every Thursday at 11am

An introductory course on Qur’anic exegesis (tafsir) of selected chapters. Taught by Imam Tahir Anwar, this course will cover the meanings along with general themes of the selected chapter. It will also guide one to appreciate the depths of the Holy Qur’an and its deep rooted connections to our daily lives. This course also aims to ground one’s understanding of certain Qur’anic chapters as understood by traditional Islamic scholars.
