About Me: alhamdulillah, I am blessed to be an IACC community member and a resident of Collin County for close to two decades and enjoying the blessings of wonderful community we all built with my wife and three kids (who are graduates of IACC Hifz School). Academically, I have done my master’s (MS) in computer engineering as well as master’s in Business administration (MBA) in Management. Currently, I enjoy working at Bank of America as a Database Consultant. I am very enthusiast about volunteering and spend my free time volunteering along with spending quality time with family and friends. Last 20 years, I have served on many different non-profits specializing in providing relief and rehabilitation work among underprivileged communities. I have served on various committees of IACC, served two terms as IACC Shura member. Worked efficiently and effectively on completion of the IACC expansion project, Farmersville cemetery project and establishing community centers. At present volunteering time includes member of IACC fundraising committee as well as treasurer at North Texas Islamic Council.   

Issues our community is facing: With the pandemic and the aftereffects of pandemic families are falling apart, not only driving adults to divorces, but also is driving youths to difficult phases of life, like drugs, depression etc. Focus on building families by providing proper guidance, organizing counseling sessions, seminars, and presentations through IACC would help solve this. Build strong families- build strong communities. For this we will need to support our religious arm to carry out such programs which eventually helps the community.

My short-term vision for IACC: strengthen the resources available at IACC by equipping them with proper tools, creating a culture of inclusion, upholding the principles of Islam, cultivating healthy relationship among community members, building effective committees based on inclusion and delegating decision-making authority, focusing on accountability.

My long-term vision for IACC: keep IACC as a leading role-model community in Collin County, stand to its name of serving to all of Collin County and work towards creating an endowment which will help IACC achieve financial independence. I have been volunteering my time for last couple of years to achieve this goal and will be a journey forward.

You should choose me as your Shura Member because: during terms as Shura Member, I did my best to learn, address issues and move the organization forward, above all strengthened the shura to take the most difficult decisions during the most difficult times. An opportunity will help me build upon what I have learnt from the experiences and challenges in upholding the vision of IACC and strengthen the community. I am all about empowering volunteers who perform day to day operations, volunteers at Sunday School, Taqwa program, Food bank, clinics,  counselling services and empower other volunteers who carry out programs to strengthen the community at large
