ATLANTA—The pioneer and elder sisters of the M.G.T. and G.C.C. (Muslim Girls Training and General Civilization Class) of Muhammad Mosque No. 15 in Atlanta received a wealth of information at the 2024 Senior Summit hosted by Khadijah Abdur-Rahman, Vice-Chair Commissioner in Fulton County, Georgia.

The free “lunch and learn seminar” was held at the Georgia International Convention Center on May 7. Commissioner Abdur-Rahman partnered with Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis, Fulton County Probate Judge Kenya Johnson and Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts Ché Alexander.

Sister Dr. Nusaybah Muhammad, the Nation of Islam’s Southern Regional Student M.G.T. Captain, encouraged the senior sisters to participate.

“Anytime I get to honor our pioneers and elders, I am elated doing my part to support those who helped to build the foundation of our Nation. Ensuring our elders have access to information that will empower them is essential to their overall spiritual and physical well-being,” she said to The Final Call.


Sister Nusaybah wanted the pioneers and elders to attend the summit for two reasons. One reason was to provide resources to help improve the quality of their lives. Summit presentation topics included elder abuse, scam prevention, and writing a will.

The other reason was “for them to have a platform of influence to bear witness of the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as given to us by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to share with the larger community of Black elderly women of the limitless resources when you turn to Allah (God),” Sister Nusaybah added.

The Muslim sisters mixed and mingled, stopping by the tables of over 20 vendors. Event organizers and attendees were excited to see the sisters from the Nation of Islam present.

“Councilwoman Khadijah Rahman was elated for our presence, and she really expressed her sincere gratitude and appreciation for us supporting her efforts. The conference participants constantly stopped us to tell us how beautiful we looked, and many stopped to take pictures with us. We reminded our beautiful sisters that we are reflections of them,” said Sister Nusaybah.
