Living a life of service, faith and leading by example are strong pillars in the Ahmad household, a St. Louis County family that participates in community services locally and abroad. On Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Don Marsh talked to Zia Ahmad, cardiologist and president of Muslim Community Services St. Louis (MCSL), about his family’s volunteer work.
Joining the conversation were Fatima and Aariz, Ahmad’s wife and youngest son, respectively. Aariz is a freshman at Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School. Also involved in community work are Ahmad’s other sons, Faraz and Safi, currently attending out-of-state universities.
