(2 votes) | Rate:Born and raised in Central Virginia, my goal was and still is to create an avenue of positive growth for the Muslim community in central VA. From Richmond, to Caroline, to Chester and beyond lies an outstanding force of intelligent, motivated, sincere but disconnected individuals. In order to grow and expand we must first correctly define what we as Muslims represent, and make it clear that our way of life should be accepted and respected, as we accept and respect other religious ways of life. S.M.P. is driven by a focus to bring unity, development, and advancements to the area. My personal goal has always been to develop an engine strong enough to maintain this focus and loud enough to be heard over the deafening silence of inactiveness.
