Who is Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi?
Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi is one of the most influential scholars in the world today, having been included in the Royal Aal al-Bayt’s publication of the 500 most influential Muslims several years running. He is a popular figure amongst young Muslims in the West, especially the UK and USA, thousands having embraced Islam after listening to and attending his lectures.
The Shaykh descends from a scholarly family that traces its roots back to Morocco, and lineage to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). He studied the various sciences of Shari’a and Arabic, as well as logic and philosophy, under his father, the late Shaykh Sayyid Ibrahim al-Yaqoubi (may Allah show him mercy), who also trained him in the Shadhili way and granted him several ijaza’s to qualify him as a scholar, with authority to teach, relate hadith, issue fatwas, and as a Master of Tasawwuf able to guide people to Allah. He also received several ijazas from prominent scholars in Syria, including Mufti Abul Yusr ‘Abidin and Shaykh Makki al-Kittani (may Allah show them mercy) which places him in one of the shortest chains of transmission of hadith in the world today. He has trained hundreds of scholars and imams in Syria and in the West. He has travelled the world extensively and participated in conferences, lectures and taught several intensive programmes from Finland to South Africa, and Indonesia to the west coast of the USA.
He was the first from amongst the ulema to speak out against the use of excessive force against the populace in Syria at the start of the uprising in 2011, subsequently being forced into exile. Shortly after, he became the patron of the UK-based charity, SKT Welfare, one of the leading organisations delivering humanitarian aid inside Syria.
Foreign ministers, dignitaries and political think-tanks from around the globe have sought his advice and guidance.
Shaykh Muhammad is a father to 4 children and currently resides in Morocco, where he continues to teach, and impart guidance to people around the world.
