About The Speaker
Hamza Yusuf began to study religious traditions at a young age, eventually leading to his discovery of Islam, the religion he would embrace in 1977. Thereafter he traveled extensively throughout the Middle East and North Africa, where he became fluent in the Arabic language and then began his studies of the traditional Islamic sciences under the tutelage of some of the greatest Muslim scholars of our age. Ten years later, he returned to the United States and completed his Western education, obtaining a Bachelor degree in Religious Studies at San Jose State University in California.
Today, Hamza Yusuf is recognized across the United States, Canada, and Europe, as one of the most prominent Muslim scholars in the West. In 1996, he founded the Zaytuna Institute, a non-proft, non-partisan organization dedicated to the revival of traditional Islamic sciences. He serves as the director of the Institute and has translated several texts from Arabic for the Institute’s curriculum, including books on creed, jurisprudence, ethics, grammar, and logic.
Hamza Yusuf resides in the Greater Bay Area of San Francisco with his wife and four children.
