Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi will lead Wahed’s education efforts

We’re delighted to announce that Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi has joined Wahed, as an ethical advisor.

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi has more than 20 years of experience as a Muslim scholar and has published numerous books and articles. He currently serves as Dean of Academic Affairs at AlMaghrib Institute, one of the leading and influential institutions in the western part of the world. He leads numerous activities that help improve our communities and build better future generations through education. He also serves as a Professor at Rhodes College, and as a Resident Scholar of Memphis Islamic Center.

Shaykh Dr. Yasir will be leading Wahed’s efforts in spreading awareness about halal investing as part our vision of creating an educational platform for the community. “Money is something that intrinsically is beloved to all people, and while it is indeed one of this world’s most difficult tests, it is also one of the best and most efficient manners of earning Allah’s pleasure,” said Shaykh Dr. Yasir. “Each and every penny that we earn and spend can become an act of worship if it is done properly. Our Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) would regularly pray to Allah to be blessed with ‘rizqan tayyiban’, which translates as pure and blessed sustenance.”

    Dr. Yasir Qadhi said in one of his lectures in ICNA convention that he is not an expert in islamic financing, he has expertise in other fields of theology so people should not ask him anything about economics or financial matters.

    I don’t know if this is happening to others or not – but since the erupt of Ustadh NAK tragedy, the matter has been bluntly left open with no conclusion whatsoever for the public. We (or ‘I’) STILL don’t know whom to trust. A dozen scholars here and a dozen there completely opposing each other. I’m no more in a situation to trust the scholars blindly and now no matter who supports who, it wont matter much to the Ummah. There was a good old time when everything this Shaykh said was correct, everything that Ustadh told was logical.. but now its no more. We don’t know whom to trust. Period. Either it should be made clear by talking about it or it shouldn’t have been brought out in the first place.
