Najah Bazzy is well known locally and internationally for her lectures on topics related to Islam, including interfaith dialogue, gender equity and equality, human rights, and medical ethics. Since 9/11, she has spoken to thousands of non-Muslims and has engaged extensively in interfaith outreach that includes the United States Army, United States Department of Justice, New Detroit, and the Susan B. Komen Foundation. She is noted for her "ambassador" style of diplomatic dialogue.
She is the founder of Zaman International and in 1996 formed Bayt Al Zahra, a program to aid in refugee resettlement that provides food, clothes, shelter, medicine and everyday necessities to indigent families in the Detroit metro area.
Najah Bazzy and her family were featured in the PBS documentary "Muhammed: Legacy of a Prophet". She has been featured in newspapers and nursing journals and also on television and radio - both nationally and internationally. Her international travels have taken her to Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Bahrain and Syria. She continues to work to bridge the gap between East and West.
She has been married for 30 years to Allie Bazzy and they have four children. They live in Canton, Michigan.
