The Mayor of New York in the United States, Eric Adams, has appointed the first Muslim-American civilian to the city’s police accountability group.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The nine-member committee oversees civilian rights in police investigations of political and religious groups.

It was previously made up of high-ranking members of the New York Police Department (NYPD) but Muhammad Faridi will be its first civilian member.


“As the first Muslim representative on this committee, that particular note is not lost on me. The Muslim community, and all communities, I understand that they’re looking at me and they want to make sure that the NYPD does the right thing in some of the most important work that the NYPD does for our city and our country,” Faridi said Tuesday.

The committee was formed after two federal lawsuits alleged improper investigations into the Muslim community.
