Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat

Shaykh Saleem Dhorat

Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat was born on the 7th of November 1962 in Bhoria; a small, rural village in India and from a very young age displayed the signs of piety, trustworthiness, zeal for knowledge and concern for humanity for which he is now well known.

Shaykh Saleem Dhorat arrived in England in 1973 at the age of 11 with his mother and siblings to join his father, Hafiz Ibraheeem Dhorat rahmatullahi alayh. Shaykh’s father was serving as an Imam in Leicester

In 1980, Shaykh Saleem Dhorat enrolled to study Islamic Theology at Darul Uloom Al Arabiyah Al Islamiyah which is based in Bury, Lancashire and at that time it was the only institute of its kind in the United Kingdom.

Shaykh Saleem Dhorat after Graduation

After graduating with honours, Shaykh Saleem Dhorat remained at the Darul Uloom for a further five years as a lecturer: a testimony to his academic brilliance and capability. He taught books such as Usulus Shashi, Hidaayatun Nahw, Mirqaat, Hidaayah and the well known book of Hadeeth, Riyaadus Saliheen.

In 1991 Shaykh Saleem Dhorat founded the Islamic Dawah Academy to help people, especially the young, undertsand the teachings of Islam. Initially starting from his home, the Academy has now grown to provide religious guidance, information and courses, advice services, da’wah amongst non-Muslims, youth activities and publications. It regularly holds talk and tours for visiting luminaries from around the world and is recognised for it’s monthly English journal, Riyadul Jannah.

Shaykh’s regular discourses throughout the UK and around the world attract huge audiences and many of Shaykh’s thought provoking lectures are recorded and available via a range of media. Perhaps the reason for Shaykh’s widespread appeal and acceptance is because he has a keen awareness of what is going on in our world and he understands what we experience in our day to day life.

Shaykh Saleem Dhorat’s beneficial lectures, talks and programmes can be heard on the Islamic Dawah Academy website.

    Asalamu Alaikum.pls am a young girl from Ghana.Please it has been my dream to become an Alima or a Hafisa.I have always wish to be in an institution where all that is taught is deen.But unfortunately in Ghana we do not have it. almost 99% of schools in Ghana involves boys and girls in the same class.this creates a lot of fitna for the muslim youth and the muslim umar in Ghana as a whole.My parents and I did a research on the internet and realise that there are a lot of girls darulum all over the world espercialy in south Africa,UK etc.But the unfortunate thing is due to the financial status of my parents they will not be able to pay the fees involved for my little sister and I.PLEASE we are begging you for the sake of ALLAH help us if you can.MAY ALLAH BLESS ANYONE WHO WILL WILLINGLY HELP US FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH.
