President, Founding Member
Mohamed Aitbalkheir was one of the founding members. He contributed significantly from inception, through construction, and the succeful startup of the masjid. In fact he was the person who identified the rental facility that became the first PIC masjid. Mohamed Aitbalkheir served as the President for the first Board of Directors from September 2019 through July 2023 when he voluntarily decided to step away from the role and not seek reelection. During his tenure, the BoD succefully secured a Letter of Intent for a 5 acre donation in a prime and strategic location within Princeton thus setting the frame work and the vision for PIC’s future growth.
BoD, Founding Member
Kabir Hussain was one of the founding members and one of the first people to passionately advocate for the creation of a masjid in Princeton, TX. He hosted several meetings to gather what was then a very small Muslim community in Princeton to rally everyone behind the idea of starting a masjid. In fact, he offered his house as a temporary Musallah and that is where members of the community used to pray as a Jamat until PIC was established. Kabir Hussain was very enthusiastic about the masjid project and personally reached out to his family and friend circles to bring a much needed fund to help the construction of PIC for example he arranged the first ever donation to PIC from a relative in Saudi Arabia. Kabir Hussain was an active member of the first BoD from September 2019 until his death on August 29, 2020. In recognition of his enormous contribution, his BoD position remained vacant until the tenure of the first BoD ended in July 2023. May Allah bless his soul, protect his family, and may Allah reward him immensely for his vision to establish a masjid in Princeton and his personal sacrifice to bring his vision to life by investing his time and resources in the construction of the first PIC masjid.
