Shaykh Nuh Ha Mim Keller

8. Reviews of Al-Maqasid:

*Review of Dr. Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo:

    “. . . I can think of no work in English that says so much about the din al Islam so concisely, so authoritatively, and with such clarity.”

(April, 1994.)

Nuh Ha Mim Keller, an American Muslim, has studied `Umdat al-Salik word by word in the traditional way with two Shaykh-s (teachers),in Damascus and Amman, over a period of five years after which they gave him their written warrant (ijazah) to expound the book and translate it into English. He continues his traditional Islamic learning there, his next translation will be al-Nawawi’s Kitab al-Adhkar (Hadith collection), Allah willing.

He is currently very busy working on a number of books one of which is a Hanafi Manual of fiqh with his wife who is a Hanafi `Alima, he is also working on a book called the Re-Formers of Islam which will be ready for publication in about 3 months insha’Allah, details of which I will supply nearer the time.
