Community News

PGMA Imam Ahmad Azzaari (pictured second from left, back row) has been appointed to the Maryland State Board of Morticians and Funeral Directors. The Board oversees the licensing and regulation of funeral homes and funeral services.

Imam Azzaari, a medical doctor specializing in infectious diseases, is a 'consumer member' of the board which means he does not himself perform the duties of a mortician or funeral director, but rather assists in the legal, social, and religious aspects of regulation.
