About

Purpose of this site


The Muslim is encouraged to make his family a priority in all matters – particularly in spiritual ones. For this reason I intend to develop this site as a place to fulfill some of that obligation. I have been active in Islamic work for years and I hope to share some of what I have learned here. I also intend to use this site to organize, document and increase my involvement in Islamic work and learning.

I pray that my family, friends and anyone else interested will benefit from this humble effort. I pray that God accepts any good found herein and forgives me for any errors. For the non-Muslims, I sincerely hope that they may find some understanding and guidance regarding this religion and way of life.

My Background


All Praise and Thanks are due to God. I am an American Muslim, born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I accepted Islam in 1998 at the age of 17 after researching various religions and philosophies. I was introduced to Islam at 14, when I saw the movie “X” by Spike Lee, based on the autobiography of Malcolm X. Soon thereafter, I traveled to the Holy City of Makkah, Saudi Arabia to increase my knowledge of Arabic and Islamic Sciences. I was able to participate in an American Imam training program and studied various introductory books of Islamic Jurisprudence and Islamic Belief with Shaikh Khalid al-Halawani.

Shortly after I came back to the states I married my wife. We currently have three children - All thanks and praise are due to He who gives gifts continuously, even though we are not deserving.

I remained active in Da’wah in Central Ohio, specifically as a khateeb (Islamic Preacher) and youth volunteer until I left for Nebraska in 2008. I served as president on the board of the Islamic Foundation of Lincoln and helped organize a bi-weekly youth halaqah and other da'wah related activities. I returned to Central Ohio in 2012 and am currently active in pursuit of increasing my own knowledge and teaching in several local mosques.

Thanks for taking a few minutes to visit!
