Syed Farooq Hussaini was born in Hyderabad, India and first arrived in the U.S.A. in 1985. He married Karen Muchow and settled in Avalon, PA. In 1991 Farooq became a U.S. citizen and about the same time he began the work of promoting understanding among religions. It was not until Sept. 11, 2001 that the importance of and demand for his work would be fully realized and appreciated. He spoke in churches, synagogues; anywhere people would listen. Farooq spoke of the peace and beauty of Islam and the need to do good works.
