Fahad’s Message to Supporters:
Thank you so much for encouraging students to pursue subjects in the humanities. The American Muslim community needs more political scientists, lawyers, politicians, writers and speakers and the ISF has identified that need. Thank you once again, for your generosity and your support to students such as myself. May Allah shower His blessings upon the ISF and its members and on the generous donors and reward them handsomely in this world and the next. Ameen.
Fahad graduated in 2011. He is currently a PhD student of Political Science.
