Nabil Rehman
Nabil RehmanVice Chairperson & Treasurer

I was born and raised in Toronto and moved to Orlando in the late ‘90s. I am a father of two children; they are 3rd generation American Muslims. As a family we have deep roots in Seminole County, giving me a unique background and perspective.

I am a Software Engineering Director for a local company. My role is to define a vision, create an actionable roadmap, get buy-in from stakeholders, assemble the right team, coordinate with key partners, and get everyone working together to deliver results for the organization.

Alhamdulillah, I have had the opportunity to be involved with Islamic work since my youth: from stamping donation envelopes as a child, to organizing nationwide MSA events in college. I am a previous AMCC board member and have been involved with projects such as Winter Camps, Food Truck nights, Adopt-a-Highway, and the Election Polling Station in Longwood.

David Kiswani
David KiswaniAMCC Board Member

My legal Name is “David Taisser Kiswani”, my friends call me “Tayseer or Daoud “, I am a son of a Palestinian refugee family in Jordan. I grew up in a strict Muslim house and did my 12 years of schooling at Al-Aqsa Madrasa. I came to USA at age 17 and graduated from UCF in 1981. While there I helped establish the UCF Muslim Student Association and held first Juma prayer at UCF. I earned my MS degree from Johns Hopkins university in 1995.

I worked as a telecom engineer on various global wireless satellite systems, I tout in community colleges, and owned several businesses that included a not for profit organization.  Unfortunately, life demands in America caused me to ignore my spiritual needs until my brother got killed in Tampa, and I performed Hajj in 2005. Seven months later in 2006, I got in a car accident that injured my spinal cord and caused my quadriplegia, since then I have been devoting what’s left of my life to studying the Quran and focusing on my relationship with my Creator.

I aspire to follow the Shathili Sufi teachings which advocates the total submission, devotion, and love of Allah ‘swt’ while living and dealing with life demands, among Muslims and non-Muslims alike. I believe Allah created us to make earth a better place for his sake, therefore I should try to make every word I say or act I do for the sake of Allah, and ensure that earth and its inhabitants are better off as a result. May Allah guide us all, and keep us on the straight path
