Introduction to Key Speakers:
Imam Khalid Latif (28 yrs) was appointed the first Muslim chaplain at New York University (NYU) in 2005 where he began to initiate his vision for a pluralistic future on and off campus for American Muslims. He was also appointed the first Muslim chaplain at Princeton University in 2006. Spending a year commuting between these two institutions, he finally committed full-time to NYU‟s Islamic Center, where his position was officially institutionalized in the spring of 2007. Under his leadership, the Islamic Center at NYU became the first ever established Muslim student center at an institution of higher education in
the United States. Imam Latif‟s exceptional dedication and ability to cross interfaith and cultural lines brought him recognition throughout the city, so much so that in 2007 Mayor Michael Bloomberg nominated Imam Latif to become the youngest chaplain in history of the New York City Police Department at the age of 24.
Imam Latif has not only managed to solidify the basis of a strong Muslim community at NYU that seeks to emphasize inclusiveness and understanding of others without compromise, but has also worked tirelessly to foster dialogue with people of other faiths in order to clarify misconceptions and encourage mutual education. Through his work, Imam Latif has demonstrated not only an exceptional dedication to gaining and disseminating religious knowledge and values, but has begun to carve out a much-needed space for young American Muslims to celebrate their unique identity and have their voices heard in the larger public sphere. He is a sought after speaker, having lectured throughout the United States and in various parts of the world and has been quoted, featured and appeared in numerous media outlets.
Shaykh Abdulaziz Ahmed Fredericks was born in Nottingham, UK. He has a BEd degree in primary education from University of Leicester, and post-graduate studies in education from various universities. He did research at the School of Oriental and African Studies, has published a number of articles on education and designed the curriculum of Islamic School London.
He has worked as a teacher, head teacher and school prinicipal in England, Scotland, South Africa, Saudi Arabia and USA. His interest in special educational needs drove him to cofound the organisation Islamic Texts for the Blind, which produces books in Braille and audio format, and provides accessible online classes.
His Islamic Studies took him to various parts of the world where he studied under many prominent traditional scholars. They include Ahmed Mashur al-Haddad under whom he studied in Jeddah and Abdul Rahman al-Khitamy in Kenya. He translated the Essentials of Islam by Ahmed bin Zay…n al-Habashi and Forty Hadith on the Quran by Mullah „Ali al-Qari, al-Nasaih al-Dinniya of Imam al-Haddad and Riyadatul Sibyan of Imam al-Ramli.
