    alhamdulillah!on the 01-08-09 we had the honor of welcoming allama arshad misbahi to s.a. A young dynamic resonant vibrant speaker who eloquently eleborated on his topic and speaking fluent english is indeed a rare commodity.apparently he came last year and gave an awe inspiring lectuer ppl were spellbound.the organizers had to call him again due to public demand.only problem he delivered the same lecture as last years one. bit disappointed though he is a gr8 speaker hey!

    has anyone got his e-mail add?or website

    no, they're not brothers. misbahi denotes their connection to al-jamiatu'l ashrafia, mubarakpur, india. the university was first known as misbah al-'ulum.

    from yaseen:

    17. mawlana salim ghisa, preston

    Good thread.Definetely agree in that our English speaking 'ulama should be given a slot at our gatherings. I'd like to add Shaykh Saleem Ghisa from Preston who is a brilliant speaker. You can hear some of his speeches on the following site:

    Theres' also some very good speakers from Dawate Islami as well. Theres a few clips on utube.

    I think you mean Allama Ghulam Yazdani

    I think it'll be really useful to have a list of names of Sunni ** ulama from the UK who are either native English speakers or who speak English at a fluent or native level and are resident here. Here are a few I know of but I'm sure there are others:

    1. Allama Arshad Misbahi (Victoria Park Mosque, Manchester)
    2. Allama Munawwar Ateeq
    3. Allama Zain al Aqtab Siddiqi and his brothers.
    4. Allama Muhammad Hanif Naqshbandi
    5. Allama Irfan Chishti
    6. The brother who used to come on Islam TV and is Indian with an orange amaamah.
    7. Pir Saqib Shami
    8. Ahmad Thomson
    9. Shaykh Abd al Hakim Murad
    10. Isa Waley (?)
    11. Aisha Bewley
    12. Allama Zahoor Chishti

    who else is there? My list is pretty desi-centric but i am sure there must be other Sunni scholars from other ethnicities such as Arabs, Turks, Africans, Caucasians (nearly wrote Devils there!! ;-)) in the UK of whom we're not aware...

    and, more importantly, these bredwins should be invited as main speakers at all Sunni events in the UK and on the TV channels instead of the usual suspects.

    **noto bene:for those who still don't get it this EXCLUDES Deobandis and their ilk like Riyadh al Haq, Ahmed Ali etc.
