As Dawah2000 Executive Director, his vision is create relationships that will be utilized effectively in securing a healthy productive future. Naim Shah Sr. says …

“Fostering unity is the key to improving the standard of Muslim life in America. Faith is a natural immunity from corruption and injustice.

Work for Unity!”
