For more than 20 years, Nashashibi has called a gritty corridor on West 63rd Street in the Chicago Lawn community his home base, and it’s been the place where he has worked to put his faith into practice.
Through his nonprofit organization, the Inner-City Muslim Action Network, Nashashibi has worked to help citizens returning from prison regain their footing by giving them income-based housing, job training, salaried positions and the tools to help them find their life’s purpose.
This is “what you do as a Muslim: You commit your life to being a force for good, particularly in neighborhoods and communities that have struggled because of historical injustices, because of profound disparities,” he said.
Besides its farmer’s market and medical clinic, the Inner-City Muslim Action Network, or IMAN, lobbies for public policies that address inequities.
