About the speaker

Imam Ismaeel Chartier is the spiritual leader of our Clifton community. He established Clifton Mosque as an archetypal Muslim community locally, nationally, and internationally. Under his leadership, we have accomplished the largest, single, one-time donation to the Freestore Foodbank.

He has also established weekly lessons and multiple weekend seminars, such as Misquoting God, and made fundamental strides in engaging the other and creating new opportunities to explore interfaith within Cincinnati.

Imam Ismaeel would love to see all of the Muslims in Cincinnati working to make our community, our city, and our country a better place to live. Imam Ismaeel has plans to build a theological seminary in Cincinnati.
