Dr Muzammil Siddiqi, Religious Director, Islamic Society of Orange County; has been named by the Los Angeles Times as one of the top 10 most powerful people in S. California. He is a former President of ISNA and current Chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America and the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.
According to the Times, Dr “Siddiqi, whose mosque is among the largest in North America, is the religious leader of thousands of Southern California Muslims at a time when xenophobia is running high. After Sept. 11, the White House invited him to preside over interfaith services at the National Cathedral. Since then, he has been a leader in driving home the point that Muslims in the US are peace-loving.”
