On Tuesday, May 16, 2017, we had the honor of hosting H.E. Sheikh Amjad Riyad, visiting from the Holy City of Najaf at our office in Dearborn, MI. He met with our team of volunteers for an open forum discussion where volunteers had the chance to tap into the Sheikh’s insight and experience as a scholar, a servant leader, and a close aide to Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani. The Sheikh is the overseer of the Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation, a nonprofit orphan organization that sponsors over 40,000 orphans in Iraq. He is also the principal of two schools in the Islamic Seminary in Najaf, Al-Madrassa Al-Alawiya and Najmul Aimma.
