ImamConnect believes in closing the gap between Muslims from all walks of life with experts in religious and non-religious services including marriage ceremonies, pre-marital advice, counselling, wills & inheritance, Islamic studies, and more.
ImamConnect’s CEO and Founder, who is also a former UK government advisor and a founder of a PR agency based in London, Muddassar Ahmed, first came up with the idea after seeing unethical practices by and lack of governance over practitioners in positions of religious leadership.
Developed by a team of Muslim communications experts, business leaders, and technologists based in Brussels, London, Kuala Lumpur, and Washington DC, our goal is to provide an excellent and comfortable service for our users. Thus, we at ImamConnect will ensure due diligence is taking place.
Muddassar also added that “This platform offers an innovative way for Muslim services and Muslim practitioner-led support to be connected with millions of people around the world in a way that ensures transparency.
The platform represents a step-change in harnessing the power of information technology to offer the community transparency, due diligence, accountability, and digital efficiency in the delivery of Islamic-based services at the push of a search button.”
Not only Service Providers at ImamConnect provide personal consultation, they too participate in workshops and events organized by ImamConnect like:
