Our aim was to give people the chance to ask Islamic questions and problems so the eminent scholars who have dedicated their lives for this purpose can attend to them in the correct manner. As well as the graduates of Darul Uloom London, we also have other blessed Ulamaa from around UK.
Since, the site has come a long way with the efforts of many individuals. The Q&A was terminated due to lack of available scholars. The Q&A was started when a need was seen in the early years of the site. Since, there are many organisations who take questions online.
Please feel free to let us know how you found our site and send any suggestions to improve the Deeni service. Jazakumullahu Khairaa
Shaikhul Hadeeth Mufti Umar Farooq graduated from Jaami'ah Raandair, India where he studied a standard level of religious subjects. After graduation, he moved to Jalaalabad, India for further studies and a higher learning in Islamic Jurisprudence (Fiqh). After reaching his goal, he was immediately nominated a lecturer in Jaami'ah, Raandair. After teaching for a number of years there, he was called to England.
He is currently the Imaam and Khateeb of Madeenah Masjid, Clapton and a senior lecturer of Hadeeth (Including Saheeh al Bukhari and the prominent work of Imaam Tahaawee) at an Islamic Institute based in Kent. He is also a leading authority in the Shar'ee Council at the same Institute.
He has written numerous articles in Arabic, Urdu and also Gujrati which have been published in numerous magazines of UK and India. His proficiency and expertise are recognized in most religious subjects, but he mainly engages himself in the teaching and studying of Ahaadeeth and delivering Fataawaa.
He supervised the answers until 2004 for muftisays.com during our launch and initial setup. He guided our new Muftis on resources and classical books. Due to distance of location, Mufti Umar Farooq was unable to continue his supervision from late 2004 but we keep his profile on this page for credit that is due and for maximum recognition of the most unique scholar to bless the UK.
His vast experience and deep study of Ahaadeeth keeping all the Islamic perspectives in mind has made him amongst one of the most respected and trusted scholars in UK.
May Allah Ta'aalaa reward him highly and enable us to value his presence. Ameen
