Though his mosque has been closed for months because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Imam Tamer Abdelaziz is plenty busy these days. 

Abdelaziz is the lead Muslim chaplain at M Health Fairview, one of Minnesota’s biggest healthcare providers. He works a full week serving patients with all types of illnesses; he’s also on call once a week to counsel patients with COVID-19.

He’s witnessed a handful of COVID-19 patients on their deathbeds. It’s in these moments that Abdelaziz tries to connect them to their spirituality through prayers, Quranic verses and support.
