On December 4th, 2022 our dear Brother, now Dr. Faisal Joseph, was granted an honourary Doctorate by St. Francis Xavier University.  

Long before there was ever a Hikma, Faisal took it upon himself to be one of biggest, if not the biggest, advocates for Muslims in the country.  He blazed a trail for Hikma and other Muslim advocacy groups to follow and build on.  His handling of media bias, fighting the system as it demonizes Muslims and the scope of his advocacy for Muslims is incredible.  

The ceremony, and Dr. Joseph’s incredible speech, can be viewed here. The honourary degree segment starts at 1:09:00.

On behalf of Hikma Public Affairs Council, we sincerely thank Dr. Joseph for all of his efforts and congratulate him on this well deserved honour!! 

Jazak Allah Khair,
