Omar Patel was born in Scarborough, Canada. He completed his Bachelors of Arts in Arabic and Islamic Studies from a world renowned Islamic Seminary in South Africa. Upon graduation from the Islamic Seminary, he saw a great need in the Muslim community for pastoral care and counselling and decided to bridge his traditional scholarship with a position in a modern Canadian context. He is currently pursuing his Masters in Pastoral Studies and Psychotherapy at the University of Toronto. What he absolutely loves about the UofT community is the sense of drive and passion that the community has in trying to reach perfection and excellence.
