Women of diverse generations and backgrounds gathered at the Dallas Palms event center on May 8 to celebrate mothers at the Third Annual Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation Mother’s Day Luncheon. The event themed “Rhythm of Life,” showcased the artistic talents of the Muslim community including a musical performance by renowned world music artist Jamal Mohamed.
The annual fundraising event supports the broad array of social services Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation provides to women of all faiths and their families, including the state’s first and only domestic violence shelter addressing the specific needs of Muslim women. Proceeds also benefit the nonprofit’s programs in youth leadership development, education and interfaith outreach.
“In the Islamic faith, mothers are revered for their role in the foundation of life. We were delighted to celebrate mothers at this special event, and appreciate all the support we received from our board and the community,” said Hind Jarrah, executive director of Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation.
