The Women of All Saints Episcopal Church in Fort Worth hosted ISB Speakers Reem El Ghonimi, Alia Salem, and Nicole Queen at their church in Fort Worth. Reem delivered an informative and well-received presentation on the topic of “Women and Islam” for approximately 40 people. In an email after the event an attendee shared her sentiments with one of our speakers:

“I just wanted to thank you again for coming out tonight. Everyone in the room really enjoyed Reem's presentation and I'm sure many felt as moved as I did. I feel very fortunate and blessed that I was there in the room. What a wonderful, beautiful faith you have and yet still so misunderstood.”

June 4th, 2011
The Islamic Medical Association of North America hosted a dinner and invited ISB-DFW’s Syed Ali to introduce the newly formed group to the attendees. As another highlight one of our new certified speakers, Shahrukh Kureishy, delivered a portion of the custom presentation that is available for the Healthcare community to learn more about Islam and Muslims. A big thanks goes out to Shahrukh Kureishy for spearheading this effort!

“O Humankind, We created you from a male and a female, and We made you races and tribes for you to get to know each other. The most noble of you in the sight of God are those of you who are most conscientious. And God is omniscient, fully aware.” (Qur’an, 49:13)
