IMAM KASHIL ABDUL KAREEM reverted to the religion of Al-Islam 23 years ago, May 15, 1986. He entered into the religion of Al-Islam in New Haven, Connecticut under the local direction of Imam Abdul Majid Karim Hasan and the national leadership of Imam Warith Deen Mohammed. It was under Imam Abdul Majid Karim Hasan’s direction that he was encouraged to develop his studies of Al-Islam and enter into the field of Prison Ministry. His background as a graduate from the University of Connecticut in 1985 set the stage for his role in Islamic Education and Prison Ministry. He became a chaplain for the State of Connecticut in 1987 under the tutor ledge of senior chaplain Yahya Shakoor and former chaplain Abdul Shaheed. He retired in 2004 after 17 years of service to the Department of Correction. While working in prison chaplaincy he performed Jumu’ah, Taalim, and classroom instruction on Islam, weddings, crisis intervention, and pastoral Care.
