Shaykh Rafiq Sufi

Shaykh Rafiq Sufi (Patel) was born in England and has gained licenses to teach (Ijaazas) in many Islamic sciences including Qur’an, Jurisprudence and Traditions of the last Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam, from various scholars.

He studied and graduated in 1992 in one of the most recognized Islamic Institution in England, Darul-Uloom al-Arabiyya al-Islamiyya. As well as becoming an Alim (Scholar), he also memorised the Qur’an in different methods of recitation (Qari).

After graduation, Shaykh took a role of Imam in various Masajid within the North of England and also for a year in Leicester.

His dedication to sacred knowledge of Islam has allowed many to gain a true understanding of Islam, be it through his teaching in many different organisations, his translation of classical Arabic text, or just his dynamic style of orientation.

Although Shaykh Rafiq Sufi is currently a teacher of Fiqh, Hadith and Arabic language, in his home town of Blackburn, his other devotion is his charity which brings ‘Humanitarian Aid’ to thousands of needy men, women and children from around the world.  He is also part of the management of the Lancashire Council of Mosques.

Shaykh Rafiq Sufi is also devoted to reaching out to the youth and bringing them the true message of Islam where ever they may be. He has delivered Islamic lectures in universities and mosques all over the United Kingdom, USA, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, to mention but a few.

He currently resides in Blackburn, UK with his wife and two children.
