  • Prayers for the Health of Dr. Maher Hathout

    The boards and staff of CAIR offices across the country are keeping Dr. Maher Hathout and his family in our prayers as he faces a serious illness.

    We admire and respect Dr. Hathout for his innumerable contributions to the Muslim community and for his extensive work to improve understanding of Islam among other faith communities and the American public. We pray that God will bless him with a full recovery and good health so that he may continue sharing his wisdom for many years to come.

    "We ask the Muslim community to pray to God Almghty to grant him a full and speedy recovery," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. "Dr. Hathout is a pioneer in the American Muslim community."
