Who is Abby El-Asmar?
Meet The Founder
Abby El-Asmar is the man who started it all. He is a serial entrepreneur with extensive experience in the digital entrepreneurship and marketing space – including serving as a marketing consultant to local & online businesses.
In 2015, he founded an online media company that he later sold for a massive profit in 2018.
That same year, he founded “PracticeFuel.io” a digital marketing agency aimed at the health and wellness industry, which he still operates presently.
In 2019, seeking to give back to the Muslim community, he founded “Ummahpreneur”, where he mentors fellow entrepreneurs to help them succeed in their business ventures and become leaders in their respective fields.
Why Do We Focus On Helping
Many times we’ve had to face the question “why are you focusing on helping Muslims?”
And the question makes sense…
For someone from the outside looking in, focusing on helping ONLY Muslims is a “bad” business decision. We could have a much wider audience if we chose to simply help all entrepreneurs, right? So why limit ourselves?
We want to share with you this hadith from the Prophet SAWS:
“Islam began as something strange, and it will return to being strange, so blessed are the strangers.”
A stranger is signified as a person who is unfamiliar. And for many Muslims, they feel like they are strangers within their larger communities and countries.
Like they are the “other”.
But through entrepreneurship and business, we can make ourselves a seat at the table.
We can empower ourselves to contribute to our communities and society at a higher level. We can impact the lives of hundreds and thousands of people positively, demonstrating what true Islam really is and changing the narrative.
And in doing so, we can make ourselves a seat at the table and let people know that “we are here, we have a place, and the world is better because of it!”
