Dr. Shafi has been involved in building the Muslim American community since he came to the United States in 1958 to pursue his PhD at Georgetown University. Even at that time he was founding organizations (Pakistani Students of Greater Washington) and providing guidance on the Muslim world (such as through speeches at the First Unitarian Church). His work has always been about the Muslim American community and the ways in which it integrates and supports the American community at-large.
In the past 50 years, he has helped to establish, given technical assistance to, financially supported or been on the Board of Directors of dozens of Muslim organizations, Islamic Centers, Outreach and Educational efforts and student groups including The Islamic Center of New Mexico, The Islamic Center of New England, Zaytuna Institute, Inner-Attainment Television, and Karamah: Muslim Women for Human Rights.
In 1978 he helped to establish Dar al Islam, which has been building bridges between the Muslim American community and the American community. He currently serves as Chairman, Board of Trustees of Dar al Islam. He also serves as Secretary of the International Board of Directors of Minaret Business Organization.
His commitment to Project Sakinah is exemplary. He has been personally involved in the project since its conception and has spent hundreds of hours with the project's team and Dar al Islam's board members while resolving several issues and streamlining budget constraints for the project.
Dr. Shafi currently lives in Northern Virginia, outside Washington, D.C. He considers his being a parent to one son and three daughters, a grandfather and a husband as his most important accomplishments.
