On Monday, August 30, Imam Izak-El Mu’eed Pasha, the Muslim chaplain of the
New York City Police Department will give an invocation at the Republican
Party convention. Pasha is the Imam, or spiritual leader, of Harlem’s
Malcolm Shabazz Masjid. In June 1999, New York Mayor Giulianni appointed
Pasha as the city’s first Muslim police chaplain.
The convention is scheduled to start at 7:45 p.m. Pasha’s invocation is the
fifth item in the order of business.
