Ustadha Hosai Mojaddidi was born in Afghanistan and moved to the United States with her family at age two. She credits her Islamic journey to 1996, when she attended Islamic classes in Hayward, California. Her teacher and mentor, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, has taught these classes since then.

One of her main focus areas is to help create a strong sisterhood for the women in the community by leading halaqas (spiritual study circles) and support groups whilst offering individual spiritual counseling and mentoring. She noted that many of the spiritual problems encountered were reflective of the deep and complicated mental health issues of the community and would be better served by focusing on mental health. Thus, along with her cousin Dr. Nafisa Sekandari, they co-founded a website called Mental Health 4 Muslims (www.mentalhealth4muslims.com).

Ustadha Hosai is a freelance writer and editor who lectures on various Islamic/spiritual topics.
