Sh. Dr. Yasir Qadhi is someone that believes that one's life should be judged by more than just academic degrees and scholastic accomplishments. Friends and foe alike acknowledge that one of his main weaknesses is ice-cream, which he seems to enjoy with a rather sinister passion. The highlight of his day is twirling his little girl (a.k.a. "my little princess") round and round in the air and watching her squeal with joy. A few tid-bits from his mundane life: Sh. Yasir has a Bachelors in Hadith and a Masters in Theology from Islamic University of Madinah, and a PhD in Islamic Studies from Yale University. He is an instructor and Dean of Academic Affairs at AlMaghrib, and the Resident Scholar of the Memphis Islamic Center.

    Assalamualukum MashAllah very inspiring and encouraging speech for our children. This is what our kids need to hear to stand up for their rights and to be a proud Muslim american, what a great feeling, is that for your father to witness while he is alive. This is the result of his hard work MashAllah it is a blessing from Allah (SWT). I love your lectures what an asset you are to our umma. may Allah (SWT) protect you and your family from evil people and reward you with jenatal ferdus and may Allah (SWT) increase your knowledge to educate us as well. Jazakallahukairn may Allah (SWT) give health and long life to you. I hope you get to experience your kids success as your father did.
