The National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance held on the first Thursday of May, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked “to turn to God in prayer and meditation”. The president is required by law to sign a proclamation each year, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day.

About the National Day of Prayer: The National day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1755 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

David Haubert represents the First District Cities of Dublin, Fremont, Livermore, and the Unincorporated Communities of Sunol and East Livermore.

Feraidoon Mojadedi is one of the most well-known and respected community activists, lecturers, and entrepreneurs in the Bay Area, California. He was born in Herat, Afghanistan and immigrated with his family to America during the Russian invasion of Afghanistan in 1982. He completed his degree from San Francisco State University where he majored in history. During his last year of college, he took on a major project and became producer of Muslim World TV, a weekly TV show that was broadcast in the greater San Francisco Bay Area for five years.

 

Around the same time, Ustadh Feraidoon spearheaded the weekend classes with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf at the iconic Islamic Study School in Hayward California, which would eventually become the springboard that launched Zaytuna Institute, now known as Zaytuna College.
