List of the nominee's achievements:

It's very seldom that you find a young person so passionate about community work. At only 22, Faran serves as one of the leaders in his local Masjid board. He coordinates and plans out activities that cater to the needs of the local Muslim community. He does this while simultaneously serving as Muslim Student Association President at the University he attends, where he facilitates interfaith panels and discussions, and spends 3-5 hours a week giving Da3wa to non-muslims. When he isn't actively engaging his efforts in the community, he is privately contributing by using his time to beautifully craft Islamic Art and Calligraphy paintings. The proceeds of these art pieces go to various charities and organizations, with only a small fraction being used to replenish supplies.

The impact and influence the nominee had on the Muslim word:

Faran has positively impacted every person he has come in contact with, by creating a strong and firm brotherhood. He is the person our youth look up to as a role model. Ask any child in our community who their inspiration is, and they'll tell you that it's Faran. Faran is the example that we want to instill in our future generation. He is able to display commitment, sincerity, and honesty in his everyday actions. He shows us all that it is possible to be an active member in the community, a student, an employee, a brother, and a friend all at once, and he does this with a smile on his face. Not only does Faran shine in his own community, but in others as well. Faran makes it a habit to show support to every muslim organization and gathering he is able to. He has been an active MAS member for over 4 years, and he takes part in non-profit organizations such as Sahaba Initiative, Islamic Relief, and Icna. You can be sure that wherever there is an Islamic event, Faran is there, ready to help and show his support.

The impact and influence the nominee had on the world and humanity:

Through Faran's work, thousands of dollars have been raised in order to help eradicate world poverty. He has helped charities including, but not limited to Advocating Arabic Literacy, the Syrian Humanitarian Relief, and Palestine Children's Relief Fund.
