Dr. Hathout is a distinguished physician and scientist, having attained high standing in professional circles regionally, nationally, and internationally. He was a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Egypt, and Chairman of his department at Kuwait University. He is also the author of over ninety academic medical journal articles. In addition to his contributions to medicine and science, he is also a religious scholar, using the tools of his educational background to study Muslim and non-Muslim faiths. He is concerned about the prevalence of negative distortions about Islam that are present in America, and is determined to foster communication and understanding between Muslim and non-Muslim people. To this end, Dr. Hathout is the author of many books about Islam, including the critically-acclaimed Reading the Muslim Mind (1995), and has participated in numerous interviews on local and national TV and radio stations. He is the recipient of many awards, including the Egyptian Medal of Excellence, the Olive Branch Award from the American Friends Service Committee in Los Angeles, and the Life Changer Award from the Initiatives of Change International Organization.
