January 6 – Dr. Muhammad Babar and Iman Mohammed Wasif Iqbal will be with us to share basic information regarding Islam and to answer questions.
Dr. Babar, a physician and Pakistani native, has helped organize numerous interfaith public service projects and has been a voice for the local Muslim community in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Since moving to Louisville in 1995, Dr. Babar has worked with the local Rotary Club and has formed a close relationship with the mayor of Louisville to coordinate meetings between Muslim, Christian, and Jewish leaders—which included hosting an interfaith open house at his mosque.
Imam Iqbal grew up in Baltimore, MD and started studying Quran at a young age. He memorized the entire Quran by the age of 13. He continued to study at Daurl Uloom Al Madania in Buffalo, NY for eight years where he received Ijaazaa in several Islamic Sciences. He graduated in 2008 with a Masters in Islamic Studies and has been serving as Imam at the Louisville Islamic Center since. Imam Wasif lives in the greater Louisville area with his wife, daughter and son.
