THE SEED TO SCHOLARLY HERITAGE

The event was the seed that took root and inspired us to form the Scholarly Heritage Association – an initiative to support the works of His Eminence Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi. Our aim is to come together to utilise our skills at the service of the Shaykh. This also means to serve the Ummah at large, by preserving the tradition of Islamic teaching with the highest standards of quality and utmost adab.  

It is our delight and a privilege to serve one of the luminaries of our time; the teacher and educator of the Ummah, who gives advice and admonishing the man in the street as well as the leaders of the world, officially recognised to be among the 40 most influential Muslims today: Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi. We are indebted to him for his constant advice and encouragement, and for accepting this service from us.  May Allah preserve him for the benefit of the Ummah.

We invite you to join in this effort, as a donor or as a volunteer, investing your time, skills and money in a cause that no doubt will bring profit in this world and in after-life.
