Testimonials

“The Islamic Scholars Fund has been helping scholars in areas of conflict to teach–so that lands ravaged by war won’t be ravaged by the removal of the scholars and the elimination of knowledge.”
Imam Zaid Shakir
Scholar & Community Leader
“Whatever crisis we are facing in the world today never eliminates our need for accurate and reliable religious knowledge, and for this reason, it is absolutely critical that we support religious scholars across the world.”
Dr. Hadia Mubarak
Scholar & Community Leader
“Learning religion doesn’t often lead to a career where we can sustain our families. We teach people for the sake of Allah, but in doing so livelihoods can become difficult. Many scholars will not say that they are struggling, because there is no honor in poverty. Yet, poverty still exists. That is why the Islamic Scholars Fund needs your support; to help those people who have given up their time, their lives, and their careers for the sake of Allah.”
Shaykh Jamal-Udden Hysaw
Teacher & Scholar
“The Islamic Scholars Fund is the world’s greatest secret, and one day its fruits will save millions of souls. Every scholar or student you support impacts hundreds of people. This is an opportunity to invest in this legacy that is multiplied exponentially. This is an amazing sadaqa jariya, and you can have a journey in that goodness.”
Faraz Yousafzai
Senior Fundraiser & Community Activist
“The Islamic Scholars Fund ensures that some of the highest calibers of Muslim scholars of our time, together with students with high potential, can continue to bless our generation through the inheritance which our Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) left; Knowledge. Even those who never took the path of scholarship in their lives have the opportunity to lift the burden from a scholar, thus facilitating for them to continue the Prophetic legacy.”
Adam Kelwick
Humanitarian & Community Activist
“My studies were only possible through the support of the Islamic Scholars Fund. I don’t know if I will be able to finish my studies because of the uncertainty of this fund– Sadly, I have seen many Shuyukh and scholars having to quit their studies to be able to provide for themselves.”
Ustadh Sufyan Qufi
Recipient of the Islamic Scholars Fund
