Rising Above Injustice – Dr. Yusef Salaam | Confident Muslim | Yaqeen Institute at MASCON2021

In the face of injustice, Dr. Yusef Salaam rose above the obstacles of a false conviction.

Yaqeen Institute is proud to name Dr. Yusef Salaam as our 2021 Muhammad Ali Confident Muslim of the Year. The award was presented at the 2021 MAS ICNA Convention in Chicago, IL.

Confident Muslim by Yaqeen Institute is a platform which highlights everyday Muslims making a positive impact in society, inspired by their faith.

Each year, Yaqeen will award the best presenter the Muhammad Ali Confident Muslim award. Muhammad Ali represents an individual who combined conviction with contribution and touched the world. We hope to inspire a generation of confident Muslims to follow in those footsteps.
