Dear respected members,
It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Dr. Fatima Hakkak. I am the newly appointed secretary for Shia Muslim Council of Southern California and I previously served as councilor in the first term.
On 10/08/17 SMC held its 2nd election at Yorba Linda Community Center. The following individuals were appointed as follows:
1. President, Sayed Moustafa Al Qazwini from IECOC
2. Vice President, Br. Khalil Dewji from Siijla
3. Secretary, Dr. Fatima Hakkak
4. Treasurer, Br. Mehdi Hirji from MBOLA
5. Councilor, Sheikh Mujahid Abdul Karim from Masjid Al-Rasul
6. Councilor, Br. Asgher Rizvi from Zainabia Islamic Society
7. Councilor, Br. Jawad Taheri from Masjid Az Zahra.
The Shia Muslim Council would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Hasnain Walji (Former VP) for his tremendous contributions to SMC in the past 3 years. In addition, our thanks goes to Hajjah Fatima Saleh (former councilor) for her incredible work in the past 3 years. They were both instrumental in laying down the foundation for SMC. Let us also remember the late Dr. Hajjar Ridha, former councilor and founding member of SMC with surah Fatiha.
Please take note that the membership dues for 2018 has been increased from $500 to $600. This was voted unanimously in our last general meeting.
We hope that the representatives of all member centers will actively participate in our 2nd term. Our goal and mission is to engage with all the centers and we welcome any suggestions that you may have to enhance the unity among all centers. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. For more information, please visit http://shiamuslimcouncil.org
