Sabeeha Rehman

Sabeeha Rehman

Sabeeha Rehman is an author, a Muslim woman, and an American of Pakistani descent. She came to the U.S. in 1971 after a hurried arranged marriage to a Pakistani doctor. When her children started grade school, she started grad school, earning a masters in healthcare administration, and began a 25-year career as a hospital administrator.

Before she could catch her breath, her boys had entered the pre-teen phase and knew next to nothing about their faith. With time running out, she, her husband and her friends scrambled to establish a Muslim community, build a mosque, and agonized over whether to put up a Christmas tree.

After her grandson was diagnosed with autism, she cofounded the New York Metro chapter of the National Autism Association and served as its first president.

She has spent several decades working for interfaith dialogue, was the director of interfaith programs at the American Society for Muslim Advancement, and the COO for the Cordoba Initiative.

In 2014, she retired to write her memoir. She lives with her husband Khalid in New York City.
