I am available for public appearances in and around Blacksburg, Virginia and beyond. I can provide presentations on Islam and Muslims, my own journey as an American Muslim, or provide an informal, non-confrontational opportunity to meet a Muslim. If your congregation or organization would be interested, please contact me. In and around Philadelphia? My sister, Sofia Ali-Khan is also available for appearances.
As a result of my popular web site and the products surrounding it, I was named one of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World in a joint publication by Georgetown University & the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center of Amman, Jordan (2009). Either myself or my products have appeared in the NYTimes, USAToday, the Islam Channel (UK), Salam Cafe (Australia), and featured in The Guardian’s Islamophonic podcast, Emel Magazine, and Comedy Central’s Colbert Report.
