Team Compassion aims to be MCC’s active arm to hoping to fulfill the fundamental calling of Islam. We are charged with working for and serving the best interests needs of the community. We would like our time and money to go to projects designed to relieve poverty, oppression, racism, xenophobiailliteracy, etc… In essence we wish to be a supportive family to our fellow Charlotteans, especially those who are struggling.
We will support the needs of our community through individual and collaborative efforts to actualize this truth which defines God, His messenger and the message of Islam. For further clarity on the ultimate calling of Islam click here
It is only through establishing a strategy for institutional compassion not just for Muslims, but as the prophet Muhammad said,
“You will not be true believers until you interact with others in compassion. His companions responded, But we are compassionate!? He responded it is not true compassion when it is just toward you family or friends. Rather true compassion is toward everyone!” (Majma’ Al-Zawa’id 8/189)
If you would like to volunteer for Team Compassion or join the committee please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or just show up to our meetings from 7-8pm on Tuesday nights in room 1 (first on right when entering MCC)!
