In 1991 the Saudi Arabian government showing appreciation for the USA’s role in Operations Desert Storm/Desert Shield hosted the first delegation of soldiers to performed Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) thus allowing Lyndon Bilal to fulfill this religious obligation while on active duty. In 1992 he hosted a historic luncheon in honor of Imam W.D. Mohammed at the Pentagon a day before Imam Mohammed became the first Muslim to open the Senate in prayer. Boxing Great Muhammad Ali was in attendance. Imam/Commander Lyndon A. Bilal is a founding member of the Muslim Military Members (MMM) organization which facilitated getting the first Muslim Chaplains officially sworn into the U.S. military in 1993.
