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.

    No disrespect but this is weak..

    “Lebron James is better than *many* basketball players” does not equal to “There are other players better than Lebron James”

    Of course muslims believe in an alien, he created the earth as they say.
    Can’t be an earthling.
    And after death they go to a location outside this world, reigned by someone
    who ist surely not from here.
    So the storytellers say, never proofed but a lot of people just aren’t critical.
    Good feelings is a bestseller.

    If they were Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam would have left us with a hint.
    The Quran would have given us a clue.
