Only a few months ago, alḥamdulillāh, MuslimMatters found one of its resident psychologist and writer Haleh Banani, and beloved Shuyūkh, Yasir Qadhi and Abdul Nasir Jangda being voted into the “Top 40 under 40″ at MBMuslima magazine.
We were truly humbled that they were selected among the top 40 under 40 influential people.
Once again, we are humbled that Muslimmatters got yet another opportunity to have their staff nominated for another MBMuslima magazine competition.
Continuing MuslimMatters' writers recognition, now one of our founders, Amad Shaikh, and his wife, Umm Reem, a specialist are up for nomination in MBMuslima's “Extraordinary Muslim Couple Awards”. All nominations can be seen here.
The nomination letter is written by Haleh Banani:
“It gives me great pleasure to recommend a very exceptional and māshā'Allāh inspiring couple: Amad Shaikh and Umm Reem. My husband and I have known them for over 20 years. As early as the college years, while many people were just starting to search for their religious identities, Amad and Umm Reem were māshā'Allāh in full gear leading their peers by being the president of the male and female sides of the Muslim Student Association at the University of Houston…” You can continue reading the rest of the letter here.
If you believe, like we do, that this MM couple should receive your vote, then please join us in voting here before June 15th.
