Siraj Wahhaj - Messenger for 21st century Siraj Wahhaj (English: Bright light; born as Jeffrey Kearse) is an African-American Muslim convert to Islam and public speaker in North America. He is the Imam of Al-Taqwa mosque in Brooklyn, New York. In 1988 he led his community in an anti-drug patrol in which they staked out drug houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant in the cold of winter for forty days and nights, forcing the closure of fifteen drug houses. This effort received high praise from the NYPD. In 1991 Siraj offered an invocation (opening prayer) to the United States House of Representatives. He was the first Muslim to do so.
