November 5, 2018

Faisal Qazi

A physician, activist, advocate for the under-served, and educator. Faisal Qazi stands out as an inspiration in his community. That is why the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California is proud to name him as our Muslim of the Week!

Faisal’s key projects include serving as the President and co-founder of MiNDS, a healthcare not-for-profit organization, as well as being the vice president of the Whitestone Foundation, which helps propagate creative concepts in Muslim organizations development.

Faisal speaks on an important lesson learned in working with the Muslim community, “Our community is well-intentioned, optimistic and very resilient. While we are still in a growth phase in many ways, we are certainly developing a strong vision for a formidable place in our society.

When it comes to his motivation, here is what inspires Faisal to serve his community, “Everyday challenges and struggles of the people that I encounter and around me has been the greatest motivation to serve.

Thank you for being such an invaluable and selfless member of the Muslim community, Faisal!
