Nasir Muhammad Al-Amreeki converted to Islam during Ramadan 1425 AH (Ramadan 2004) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma after several other Muslims invited him to join them for Iftaar and made Dawah (the call to Islam) to him. He was raised in a non-religious household and previously attended Catholic, Pentecostal and Baptist churches on his own accord. Nasir accepted Islam during a time of personal struggle having recently struggled with substance abuse and other crisis. Brother Nasir found Salat (Prayer), Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah), and reading the Quran to be immensely helpful in overcoming those struggles he was facing and making sense of his struggle. Nasir is experienced in the field of Dawah having served as both an Advisor to the Board of Directors and Director at Uplift Dawah where he helped them improve processes and grow as an organization and now serving as Interim Amir and a member of the Masjlis Ash-Shura of Northwest Dawah Foundation, a religious non-profit he co-founded dedicated to Dawah and Sadaqah. Nasir currently studies at an Islamic University and Hanbali Madrasah and is drawn to studies in Ilm Al-Hadith and Ilm Usul Al-Fiqh. When not performing Dawah and studying Islam, Nasir enjoys fishing, gardening, and drinking tea.

“And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.” Surah Ali ‘Imran [3:104]
