What is the Visionary Leadership Circle?

The Visionary Leadership Circle is comprised of a distinguished group of donors who are dedicated to supporting the long-term vision and mission of The Islamic Seminary of America. These are the individuals who go beyond dreaming of better communities & stronger leaders; these are the people who invest in their vision and bring it to fruition.

Our Mission

TISA’s mission is to cultivate generations of world class doers and thinkers who lead from an Islamic paradigm while engaging contemporary challenges and opportunities.

Going Beyond this Worldly Benefit

By investing in the education and training of Muslim Leaders, TISA’s Visionary Leadership Circle Members establish a Saadiqa Jaariya that can, not only continue to benefit the community for generations, but also create an ongoing source of blessing and reward in the next life, bi’ithnillah. The Prophet (saw) said:

‘When a person dies, his deeds come to an end except for three: Saadiqa Jaariyah (a continuous charity), or knowledge from which benefit is gained, or a righteous child who prays for him.’ (Muslim)

Visionary Leadership Circle members have the opportunity to make a lasting and widespread impact, not only for their communities, but for their own souls, long after they are gone.
