Sister's Recognition Luncheon & Fashion Show

Each year, United Muslim Masjid and the Fashion Show Committee has recognized those Sisters in the community who have contributed their time, their wealth and their lives to the growth and development of the Islamic community. With these humble Sisters' efforts and selfless acts, the Ummah has benefited a great deal. This Recognition Luncheon & Fashion Show is but one way we endeavor to show our thanks and appreciation to these amazing Muslimahs.
