Message from the Executive Director

Assalamu Alaikum!

Greetings of Peace,


As a membership-based, 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization, ISNA’s mission is to continue to develop the American Muslim community through education, civic engagement, interfaith collaboration, youth empowerment, and other programs. For 60 years, as the leading organization, ISNA has provided a variety of services to the Muslim community in North America, including Annual Conventions, Conferences, Youth programs (Muslim Youth of North America), Islamic Horizons Magazine, Green Initiative, Interfaith Alliances, Education Forums, Chaplaincy Services, Scholarships, Masjid Services, matrimonial services, Non-Profit Management Training, and more. ISNA has been an important part of American Muslim life through its inspirational and effective services and leadership.

ISNA will continue to bring together scholars, civic leaders, experts, educators, and the best practitioners to bring you quality services and programming. Our basket of services is broad and diverse; we believe everyone can benefit from them.

As we continue to serve American Muslims, I take solace in having a committed board, staff, volunteers, and important stakeholders and supporters like you. Although there are many challenges, I am excited and inspired by the great possibilities of growth and development waiting for us. I am confident that we can achieve great things with the help of Allah (SWT) and your help and support. You can support and be part of ISNA in many ways – renew your membership, become a new member, support ISNA financially, volunteer with ISNA, host a webinar, attend our events, host an ISNA day in your community, and more.

I am committed to nurturing a culture that enables greatness, encourages openness, and helps us provide quality services to our members and the community. As we face new and evolving challenges, I want to assure you that, with your help; we will continue to make ISNA operationally efficient and programmatically relevant.

Jazak Allahu Khayran,
