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.

Suhaib Webb has lectured extensively around the world including in the Middle East, East Asia, Europe, North Africa and North America. Upon returning from his studies in Egypt, Webb lived in the Bay Area, California, where he worked with the Muslim American Society from Fall 2010 to Winter 2011. He currently serves as the Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston’s Cultural Center (ISBCC).

  • Asalamu alaykum,

    Actually, that was a local reporter who had a very large contraption to record . It was not possible to hold it as she was turning it off and on- recording bits and pieces of the talk.

  • Imam Suhaib, please come to south Florida. We have a lot of youth groups out here and we could really use your words of wisdom and very good talks. Do come and visit, jazakAllah khayr for the lecture. Your brother in Islam Ibrahim

  • Assalamu’alaikum,

    yo imam suhaib, great talk man, give more talks man, you should give a talk every day and put it on the internet and link it to your facebook page. Tour the world and give talks and record them and put them up online to reach everyone – do it more often you feel me? Come by every college campus through the states.

  • You mentioned that when studying Islam it is good to study a Madhab, how do you know which Madhab to choose (which would you recommend), and what would be some good books in English to study for that Madhab or just generally for knowledge?
