Amin is an entrepreneur with a background across finance, marketing, and manufacturing at Fortune 500 companies such as General Mills, Target Corporation, and 3M. He is also the recipient of the 2015 Islamic Scholarship fund.

As of 2015, Noor Kids has published one of America’s fastest-growing Islamic children’s book series with titles in over 25,000 homes across 25 countries. Under Amin’s leadership, the organization has published eight award-winning children’s titles.
