ISGKC Past Presidents and BODs

With the election of the new Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City management team for 2011, Culturally Speaking would like to pay tribute to past executive committee members and boards of directors.

From its inception in 1974, the Society has elected committed brothers and sisters to be servants of the community. Some have moved on to other locations, some are still here in management of Islamic centers in the Kansas City area, and some are contributing to the Islamic community without any official post or position.

May Allah bless each and every one of them for their dedication and service.

The following information was obtained from the Missouri Secretary of State’s website. Each name in the table below is followed by the number of years served as president of the Society and the total number of years served on the board of directors.

    AsSalamu Alaykum,
    Please note that the first president to be elected after the first meeting at the Common Ground was Mr. Adil Alani.
    Mr Alani was and the doctors with him were the first to call for gathering the community for Eid Prayer.
    If you like to have more information on the establishment, you can write me.
    As-Salamu Alaykum
