    I think Dr. Ghulam Zurqani, son of Allamah Arshad-ul-Qadiri (raHimahullah), is based in America. I got this info from the intro to a book written by him.

    Apparently, he is associated with this organization in Texas:

    A mawlid lecture delivered by him.

    Obviously there is none like him, but I fail to see how in a country exploding with a Muslim population, we cannot have a Shaykh Asrar caliber Alim. It's insane once you think about it.

    I am interested as well Wadood. Can you give me a list of names of ENGLISH speaking alims in America currently? JazakAllah

    So I guess same conclusion can be extended to:
    • Moon sighting committees
    • Halal monitoring organizations (e.g. for certifying slaughterhouses/restaurants/food products)
    • Cemeteries (i.e. organizations that handle administration of)

    Can you kindly list them (name, city, masjid, organization, address, etc.) in the following thread:

    If there are many proper ulema as you say, then this shouldn't be necessary, but I would be open to discussing.

    we can start Sunni teaching in North America if u wish, or have the time. i can put my own resources in. its a matter of trust then onwards. i do not believe in profit making or livelihood earning through deeni teaching.

    There are many fortunately. you might be naive to look for another teacher like Shaykh Asraar, as there is no one like him.

    there are Sunni, non-sullah kulli (non prennialist ) scholars with excellence in North America!

    There are none, unfortunately.

    North America is run-down by deobandis, wahabis, shias, etc. It's a shame too because many people are turning towards wahabi masjids for their source of Islamic information. I witnessed this first hand.

    More importantly, it should be etched on every Sunni alim's heart* - after refuting the wahaabis and deobandis, what next? More naat conferences? More urs mehfils? More milaad processions?

    Sunni alims need to go back to teaching the basics*. If only they would teach basics of aqida, fiqh, hadith, arabic, tajweed to the masses. There would be no need to keep having to prove permissibility of mawlid and tawassul, the impermissibility of perennialism, etc. as people would be able to recognize right and wrong on their own. This is why the wahabis and deobandies have been so successful in creating and controlling masaajid - they offer laymen the opportunity to learn the basics (and then introduce their poison slowly).

    Sunni alims need to teach in other than Urdu* - how else will they get their message across to the greater English speaking community at large? There needs to be regular courses for all age groups - both children and young adults and up. We might have madrasas for children, what about adults that want to fix their tajweed, or non-Urdu speaking converts that want to learn the Qur'an?

    There is a huge gap (in North America at least) of sunni alims actually teaching. Where are the Shaykh Asrars of North America?!?

    * Based on my observation of state of sunnis in North America

    I think al Jamaat ul Muhammadiya should release the full video as people are listening to a clip that is making it's round and it is no way a just representation of the speech.

    So insha Allah upload full speech.

    Some very pertinent points made by Shaykh. I hope 'Sunnis' take heed and do real work, make real sacrifices- and not just sit on forums and Facebook thinking they're doing their part.

    The most important point I took away was read books.

    I think aside from the obvious names/groups the shaykh mentioned, more important was his mention of people chanting Maslak A'la Hazrat whilst chatting up people of the opposite gender, dressing in revealing clothing, acting against the Sunnah an then they talk about defending the status & honour of RasoolUllah (sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam)... The message I got is we need to fix up as individuals to become better as a Ummah and the key to this is education as the Shaykh mentioned.

    The truth of the matter is and this is the sad truth no one really listens to shaykh Asrar. Only when he offers the wahabis for a debate or something of that kind to you see a packed house.

    I can only pray for Shaykh Asrar he not only accommodates for advance students of knowledge. He provides very basic knowledge for the average laymen.

    A lot of people will probably not know this in the early days when shaykh had returned from syria he would personally come to people's houses to teach them.

    This much concern he has to teach but trust me us sunnis have a gem amongst us but we don't benefit one bit.

    Unbeknown no need to be smart the above is what I meant about anyone proving me wrong.

    brother Aqdas, I have a small suggestion;

    You should get Mawlana bilal from Halifax on here to do a weekly live Dars e Quran on here.
