Shaykh Yaseen is an accomplished English speaking teacher who developed a strong interest in acquiring the traditional Islamic sciences from an early age. While actively participating in local gatherings of dhikr and knowledge, Sidi Yaseen secured his basic Islamic foundations through studies with qualified ulema from the community amongst them most notably Shaykh Rasul Baksh Saeedi of the FR Institute. To further develop his Arabic proficiency, he also travelled to the ‘land of Knowledge’ (Syria) and during this stay was fortunate enough to consistently meet and learn from several renowned scholars of the current era, including Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi.
Following the completion of his primary Islamic studies, efforts were then renewed to continue an academic career that would also provide an opportunity to engage with the local Muslim community. To date, he credibly holds a Bsc in Computer Science and Software Engineering and more recently received an Msc in Real Estate Management. Alongside other interests, Shaykh Yaseen currently pursues advanced studies in Tafsir and Hadith at the established Sultan Bahu Educational Trust, and personally leads other circles of sacred knowledge on a daily basis. He also serves as Imam at Woodlands Road Masjid in Birmingham.
