Imam Mohammad Khan, Islamic Tradition
Join us for an Muslim meditation with a focus on "Oneness." The meditation will include a recitation and discussion of verses, and instructions for prayer.
Mohammad Ahmad Khan was born and raised in Houston, Texas. In 2007, he memorized the Qur’an. He then went on mastering the recitation and articulation of the Qur'an under the tutelage of the distinguished Reciter Muhammad Siddique. After learning the fundamentals and the art of Qur’anic recitation, He accepted the position of primary Imam at a local mosque and began teaching the principles that he appropriated from his teachers.
After working closely with the community for many years, in 2012, Mohammad enrolled at Zaytuna College to further his studies in the Islamic Sciences. Zaytuna College has given him a holistic understanding of both the the Islamic and Western traditions. He seeks to be a dynamic community leader and a professor of Islamic Studies who engages with both the Muslim community and the greater community here in the West by presenting the Islamic sciences in a manner that gives access to the laity, Muslims, traditional students of Islam and Western academics alike.
He is currently the Director of Religious affairs at ISGH Mercy Islamic Center in Baytown. The central focus of his mission is the enfranchisement of the disenfranchised, particularly women and young professionals.
The series is co-sponsored by Ligmincha Texas Institute, The Jung Center of Houston, M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, and the Rothko Chapel.
