We envision Muslims and people of concern across the country combing through neighborhoods sharing with people words from the Higher Voice (enlightened principles and concepts) that speak to the Higher Voice within (the original human soul) and inspires them to rise up to the high station of human character, behavior, and thinking that the Creator intended for human beings.
The mission is to bring about this vision and we begin this mission by organizing the Higher Voice Dawah Movement amongst the community associated with the leader who has inspired the vision of this movement; Imam Warith Deen Mohammed.
The first phase of the movement is to reach out to believers across the country and build a National Higher Voice Dawah Movement where Muslims are going out in a systematic way, on a regular and consistent basis, with an identifiable and uniform look, with a message that is based upon the principles and teachings of the Qur'an, the example of Prophet Muhammad, and the commentary of Imam W. Deen Mohammed and is written specifically for people who are not Muslims.
The Higher Voice Dawah Movement was founded in June 2012 by Dr. Mubaashir Uqdah, a student and follower of Imam W. Deen Mohammed and a member of the community associated with his leadership.
Mubaashir Uqdah first reached out to Muslims in the Northeast Section of the community by inviting people to a dawah meeting at Masjidullah in Plainfield New Jersey. Members from Plainfield and a few from surrounding areas attended. At this meeting the Higher Voice Dawah strategy and program was presented and those in attendance embraced the program. The Muslims in attendance scheduled their first outing two weeks from that meeting. The movement was born (see photo above).
However, as the word got out and spread across the Internet, believers from various parts of the country inquired about the program and indicated an interest in the approach. Imam Rashad Sharif of Masjid Mu'minun in Memphis Tennessee with his enthusiastic supporter, Hakeem Love, were next to join us in the streets (see photo on left). Then Masjid Ali K. Muslim and Masjid As-Salaam in Newark NJ and Masjid Mu'minun in Winston-Salem NC. There are currently eight other areas that have expressed an interest in joining the effort.
We were once a positive influence in the neighborhood; we intend to be that once again.
