About the author

Suhaib Webb

Suhaib Webb is a contemporary American-Muslim educator, activist, and lecturer. His work bridges classical and contemporary Islamic thought, addressing issues of cultural, social and political relevance to Muslims in the West. After converting to Islam in 1992, Webb left his career in the music industry to pursue his passion in education. He earned a Bachelor’s in Education from the University of Central Oklahoma and received intensive private training in the Islamic Sciences under a renowned Muslim Scholar of Senegalese descent. Webb was hired as the Imam at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, where he gave khutbas (sermons), taught religious classes, and provided counselling to families and young people; he also served as an Imam and resident scholar in communities across the U.S.

From 2004-2010, Suhaib Webb studied at the world’s preeminent Islamic institution of learning, Al-Azhar University, in the College of Shari`ah. During this time, after several years of studying the Arabic Language and the Islamic legal tradition, he also served as the head of the English Translation Department at Dar al-Ifta al-Misriyyah.

Outside of his studies at Al-Azhar, Suhaib Webb completed the memorization of the Quran in the city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia. He has been granted numerous traditional teaching licenses (ijazat), adhering to centuries-old Islamic scholarly practice of ensuring the highest standards of scholarship.

Webb was named one of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center in 2010 and his website, www.SuhaibWebb.com, was voted the best “Blog of the Year” by the 2009 Brass Crescent awards.

  • As salaamu alaikum – I just finished listening to this on my iPod as I made my way to and from class (on trams in Prague!). I throughly enjoyed this latest talk by Imam Webb. It was very enlightening and of course educational. I only pray that sometime in the near future, I will be able to attend such a talk and get the full enjoyment of being in Imam Webb’s presence and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that I could palpate (sorry, I’m a med student, hehe)during the talk, ma’sha’allah.
    As for doing those little things that help integrate Islam (via Qur’an or Hadith)into daily life for us young ones, one thing that has helped me greatly is the blog of Hafiza Sr. Iffath Hassan, named, Lessons of the Day. Actually, now, instead of clicking onto the blog, I receive the posts via e-mail, as it is associated with a Yahoo group. The posts alternate from 10 Pearls of Wisdom that advise you on your life (eg, Rumi, Imams Ghazali and Muhasibi) to the more conventional Ayah, Hadith, Wise Quote and Guidance of the Day features.
    Another good source is Friday Nasiha. I know these are e-mail-centric, but just my little contributions :-)

  • Once again, great talk by Imam Suhaib. His talks are very enlightening and inspirational, good job to on the video.

  • Love you Imam, keepup the good work, can’t wait to attend friday prayers with you at Adams July 15th.
