Imam Senad Agic

Director - Islamic Cultural Center of Greater Chicago

Imam Senad Effendi Agic is representative of the Bosnia-Hercegovina National Ministry of Religion in America. As imam of the Northbrook Mosque of Chicago and Chairman of the Bosnian Relief Committee of Chicago, where perhaps the most Bosnian refugees in the nation are located, Imam Senad was extremely active in helping the refugees in relocating to new homes in the US, in collecting donations and supplies for the Muslims in the former Yugoslavia when Bosnia-Hercegovina was under seige. Imam Senad studied in Imam Khusro Beg school, where he received a degree in shari'ah.

After attending the International Islamic Unity Conference as the leader of the Bosnian Youth Mawlid Group and as a speaker, Imam Senad returned to Sarajevo, Bosnia to meet with rais al-ulema, Dr. Mustafa Ceric to discuss the situation of the Bosnian Community in the US. There, in a formal ceremony, he was given the new title of Mufti of the Bosnian Muslim Community in America.
