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 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.

Never has he showed any signs of feeling he has enough knowledge to take a little break. Continuous engaging in literature and Islamic issues has been his strong point throughout his studying days. May Allah Ta'aalaa increase his knowledge. Ameen
