After accepting position Pearland Islamic Center as our first Imam on November 1st 2013, Imam Abdullah in a very short time (less than a month) introduced the "New Muslim Winter BBQ" which has become a tradition with December 2014 being the second year. The program helps new Muslims who are predominantly from Christian faith deal with the 'Christmas Holiday Season' and also learn how to appreciate their families and friends who are still not of Islamic faith. At the same time, the program helps the new Muslims know that they are not alone and that they have new families who care for them. Besides the "New Muslim Winter BBQ", he also has introduced to the Pearland community a number of programs including (currently) 3 levels of Arabic, Tafseer, Basketball Clinics, IslamInSpanish, and more.
For 2015, Imam requested to have a calendar so the community can know where he is and when he is available to meet with them on counseling and other matters. Hence this page was started.
We hope the community will make good use of it and it will benefit their lives richly
