Welcome from Houston: A Message from Dr Helmi Al-Jamal
Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
All praise is due to Allah and peace and blessings be upon his final messenger.
As previously announced, Mishkah’s head office has moved to Houston, Texas. On behalf of the new administration, I would like to warmly welcome all Mishkah students, staff, faculty, donors, contributors, supporters, and followers.
Houston is the 4th largest city in the USA and one of the main hubs of international institutions and businesses in North America. Due to the city’s significance, Mishkah has determined that this transfer meets its strategic plans towards continuous growth, development and improvement.
The interest in joining Mishkah or enrolling in its precious programs has proportionally increased over the past two years, especially from the USA. Therefore, being located in a major city has great potential impact in enhancing this interest and boosting the value of our programs. Mishkah is currently constructing its large campus in Houston to accommodate the projected growth in its staffing and operations.
The new administration would like to confirm that all of Mishkah’s operations, systems and processes will run effectively as usual with no changes. Any future changes will take place towards improving the efficiency of Mishkah’s operations and will be communicated promptly.
Kindly forward any questions or concerns to:
5445 Almeda Rd., Suite # 401, Houston, Texas, 77004 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: All phone numbers remain the same as listed on www.mishkahu.com and responses to your inquiries will be processed normally with a temporary delay not to exceed two weeks in sha’Allah.
Thank you for your valuable and continuous support, interest and commitment to Mishkah and its mission.
Jazakum Allah Khairan,
