SimplyIslam.sg, together with Sout Ilaahi, is happy to be organising Dr Umar Faruq Abd-Allah’s first visit to Singapore!
Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah is one of the foremost Muslim scholars from the West today. Dr. Abd-Allah received his doctorate with honors in 1978 for a dissertation on the origins of Islamic Law, Malik’s Concept of ‘Amal in the Light of Maliki Legal Theory.
From 1977 until 1982, he taught at the Universities of Windsor (Ontario), Temple, and Michigan. In 1982, he left America to teach Arabic in Spain. Two years later, he was appointed to the Department of Islamic Studies at King Abdul-Aziz University in Jeddah, where he taught (in Arabic) Islamic studies and comparative religions until 2000.
During his years abroad, Dr. Abd-Allah had the privilege of studying with a number of traditional Islamic scholars. Among others, he is specialized in the fields of culture and history.
