By Imam Kamau Ayyubi
In Juz’ 11 (9:88–11:5), the basmallah is removed and the believers are called to tawbah through the stories of Prophet Noah and Prophet Moses and Pharaoh, through which the believers are reminded about the consequences of unfaithfulness and arrogance. It is in this spirit that Imam Kamau Ayyubi reflects.
Imam Kamau Ayyubi grew up in Los Angeles California. He received his Bachelor’s degree from San Francisco State University in Visual Art. As an undergrad, Kamau also completed an internship on Holistic Health studies. He received his religious and spiritual education and training under the Islamic Supreme Council of America (ISCA) and was appointed as an Imam in 2002. Imam Ayubbi received his Clinical Pastoral Education (chaplaincy training) at Beaumont CPE Center in Royal Oak, Mich. Before serving at University of Michigan Hospital and Health Systems, Imam Ayubbi worked as a staff chaplain in Adult Palliative Care and in a Cardiac Progressive Care Unit at Beaumont Royal Oak from 2010 to 2015. He loves sharing principles and practices of Peace and Meditation for all ages.
