All praise is due to Allah Most High.
We, the Board of Trustees of the Islamic University of North America, Mishkah, wish to announce that as of October 15th, 2021, the University will move its headquarters from Tampa, Florida to Houston, Texas.
As a result of this decision, we would like to convey our immense gratitude and appreciation to our CEO, Sh. Haitham Barazanji, and our Executive Director, Br. Mahmoud Gomaa, who will be concluding their journey with Mishkah.
For the past six years, with the help of Allah, this executive team with its remarkable experience and hard work, was able to dramatically multiply the number of Mishkah’s enrolled students, implement cutting-edge online higher education technologies, and improve the University’s programs up to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) accreditation standards.
These extraordinary efforts resulted in Mishkah University becoming the one of the largest online Islamic universities in North America. In addition, the executive team achieved consistent fiscal financial stability for Mishkah and successfully implemented academic agreements with many well-known and respected institutions, including the great Ez-Zitouna University in Tunis.
Sh Haitham and Br Mahmoud – The board would like to commend and thank you for your dedication and tremendous contributions to the University. Mishkah could not have done it without you. May Allah Almighty reward you enormously for everything you have done.
In this transition period, the board along with the executive team and staff will continue to oversee the institution’s operations to ensure a smooth and seamless changeover inshaallah. The board is committed to continue building on the success that the outgoing executive team has accomplished and will provide all the help needed for the new team in Houston, inshaallah. The new administration will also be contacting our students and supporters soon with detailed information related to this transition and thereafter.
The board thanks you all for your continuing support to Mishkah University’s success – may Allah reward you in this life and the next, Ameen.
