Shaykh Abdullah Hakim Quick Ph.D. has travelled to more than 34 countries on lecture and educational tours. He embraced Islam in 1970 and thereafter pursued his studies at the Islamic University of Madinah, where he completed a BA from the College of Da'wah and Usul al-Din. He later read for his Masters degree and completed his PhD on the History of Islam in Africa at the University of Toronto, Canada. The focus of his thesis was the life of the great mujaddid of the 18th century, Shaykh Uthman Ibn Fudi (Usman dan Fodio), the Amir of the Sokoto Caliphate. Shaykh Ibn Fudi succeeded in combining the best of fiqh, theology and spirituality, and successfully developed an Islamic State.Shaykh Abdullah Hakim has served as Imam, teacher and counselor in the USA, Canada and the West Indies. For three years he contributed to the religious page of Canada's leading newspaper. He is presently a Senior Lecturer at the Dar-ul-Arqam Islamic Institute and Director of the Da'wah Department of the Muslim Judicial Council, Cape Town, South Africa.As the new millennium dawns, Islam is in need of innovative rethinking based on original, authentic Islamic sources. Shaykh Abdullah Hakim provides an example of this new, progressive Islamic thinking.

note: This is one of the times I wish that I live on Penang island. Will have to give this a miss 'cause husband is unavailable and it's too dangerous for me to drive across Penang bridge alone at night :C


  1. Thanks for the info; unfortunately I am far away from Penang and cannot make it. I hope you enjoy the talk and hope that your pregnancy continues to be uneventful until you safely deliver, InsyaAllah.

  2. Snuze, Ameen.. thanks for your prayer.
    I've updated the information regarding Dr Abdullah Hakim's lecture. He'll be lecturing in Selangor from 23-25 December. Let's just hope that JAIS won't be arresting him for not possessing JAIS' special tauliah, hahahaa:P
