We are delighted to present the SeekersPath. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to cultivating greater understanding of Islam. We are committed, via our Mission, our Vision and our Approach, to an educated, and active Ummah in the West.
The SeekersPath is an initiative inaugurated to provide a free question and answer service for the public on issues pertaining to Islam and wider global matters affecting the Muslim Ummah. Our team is headed by Mufti Qasim Zia al-Qadiri; a young and active scholar who completed the traditional Dars-e-Nizami, Dawra Hadith and Takhassus fil Fiqh. He has been issuing legal verdicts for over 8 years since completing the Ifta course and has also published many books. We have important contributions from several British scholars who include Ustadh Ibrar Shafi, Mawlana Mohamed Husein, Shaykh Naveed Jameel and Ustadh Asid Shafait. Our translation team is made up of talented young and upcoming British born translators who include Mawlana Haider Ali, Mawlana Bilal Shabir, and Mawlana Zameer Ahmad.
