Michigan: To promote peace and educate people about the virtues of Islam and Prophet Muhammed (Pbuh), an American Muslim from Michigan has set on a unique tour to recite Adhan – call to prayers, and the last sermon of the Prophet in 50 US States. Jameel Syed (40), who is aiming to become the first person to perform the Adhan in all 50 U.S. states, began his spiritual journey at the Tawheed Center and performed his first call to prayer on a Friday in Indiana at the national headquarters of the Islamic Society of North America, one of the biggest Muslim groups in the US, according to Detroit Free Press. “We’re living in a world where Muslims are being demonized,” Syed told the worshippers in Farmington Hills. “We have a pretty bad rap around the entire global community.” Syed said there are already several Muslim-American groups who are “putting efforts into saying who they’re not: We’re not ISIS. We’re not terrorists. We’re not radical. We’re not extremists. You’re always playing defense. You’re always on your heels. I would rather spend my time telling people who I am.” “I want to show Muslims can be beautiful people”, he added. After reciting the call to prayer at each mosque in 50 States, Syed will deliver the last sermon of Prophet Muhammed , a talk that Syed said promoted gender equity, racial equality, trust, and peace. Syed was born in the US to immigrants from Pakistan and grew up in Ann Arbor, where his father was a professor at the University of Michigan.
