“Soumaya engaged with our class on a very personal level questions The information provided was perfect in terms of depth and breadth for the class.”

Member, PTC United Methodist Church

“We loved how knowledgeable Noor is, teaching us about Islam as she responded to our questions. Her easy and open presence invited questions even from our more quiet participants. We shared stories, food, and fellowship in a the two-hour morning that seemed over before we’d begun.”

“Fara and Faraz did an excellent job presenting to our middle school students and parents! Faraz is so funny, sincere and genuine that he immediately made everyone comfortable and made sure that the students (and parents) know they could discuss anything or ask anything. Fara is an excellent speaker, and so open and honest – they both did an outstanding job giving us the basics about Islam and answering all our questions. Thanks so much for sending them as our speakers!”

Professor, Wesley Foundation at Georgia Tech

“The speaker was extremely poised, eloquent and knowledgeable. It is immediately clear she has trained for this and had done it several times in the past. She was quick on her feet, easy to relate to, and dynamic in her answers. She was inspiring and I could not have asked for a better representation of Islam to a group that knew nothing going into it.”
