ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILM: A Conversation with Shaykh Jamaal Zarabozo

 Shaykh Jamaal

Allahu Akbar! I just had the distinct honor and privelege of hosting the renowned Shaykh Jamaal Zarabozo for the day, in the aftermath of the Why Islam symposium on Saturday night. It was a stormy day of wintery weather, but that in no way prevented us from benefiting from his presence. We began with a power-charged informal session of one-on-one questions and advice with the Shaykh in the Why Islam center in Somerset, NJ, and the audio is available here:

A Conversation with Shaykh Jamaal

This was followed by, . . . lunch in my house with Jamaal Zarabozo!!! Masha’allah, to add to the baraka, we were joined by Imam Abu Muslima, who came to enjoy the company of Shaykh Jamaal. More to come . . .

  1. Unfortunately Shaykh Yasir left Sunday morning but that would have been a good combination. With respects to the hosting, we were instructed that he does not tolerate spices at all, which I relayed to my wife and her mom who was over. But you know the deal when it comes to Desi women at work in kitchens . . . The Shaykh had a few kernels of rice and a quarter portion of the tiniest kabab on the plate about 10cm in diameter. He said it was because we only had a few minutes until his flight, but I suspect otherwise. 🙂

  2. Jazakum Allahu khayran, that was a very nice lecture. May Allah ta’ala preserve shaykh Jamal and bless him and his family with the best in this life and the next, Ameen.

  3. Assalamu alaikum, my name is Sabur Abdul-Salaam and my emaill address is brsabur@aol.com. Shaikh Jamal and I have known each other since he was a student at U C Berkeley and I was a student at San Francisco State University. I am presently living in Utica, NY and I have not been in touch with Shaikh Jamal since he was living in Colorado and that’s been at least ten years ago. I would really appreciate it if someone would put me in touch with Shaikh Jamal either by giving him my contact information or giving me his, Insha Allah.

  4. Salam,

    Subhanallah, many well known figures were given hidayah by Allah and now they are doing dakwah. But only Dr. Yusuf Estes has many websites or reading materials on the net. I sometimes searched for
    Dr Gary Miller’s, Dr. Jeffery Lang, Sheikh Jamal Zarabozo, Dr. Jerald F. Dirks and Dr.Jeremiah McAuliffe…but not much available.
