At Human Aid & Advocacy we strive to ensure that all of our work is in accordance to Islamic guidance. We have a long tradition of taking counsel from scholars since our inception. In more recent times we have worked with the Islamic Council of Europe (ICE) to check our projects and ensure they are being applied correctly. Now we have moved to create our own independent board of scholars that are representative of the Muslim Community that will verify our projects.
The scholars that are part of our Islamic Scholars Board are listed below:
Shaykh Suliman Ghani completed his memorisation of the Qur'an, at a young age, in South Africa, before pursuing Islamic Studies in Pakistan.
Having studied there for a period of 3 years, he was then accepted at Al Azhar University in Egypt, where he studied for 2 years. Later, he continued his studies at Madinah University for an additional 4 years, graduating from the faculty of Hadith. Shaykh Suliman completed an MA in Islamic Studies from SOAS University, London.
Shaykh Suliman Gani is currently the Imam at Purley Masjid. In addition to this he has been a regular guest speaker on various Islamic TV channels, as well being involved in shows on terrestrial TV. He is keen to utilise modern technology and media platforms to further his reach, to convey the message of Islam.
The Shaykh has a history of campaigning for the innocent, oppressed and those in need, spanning over two decades. He was involved in campaigns supporting those unjustly incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay and their families. He actively served members of the local community during the height of the pandemic, and would visit the sick and carry out funerals. He continues to struggle for Muslims through his charity work with Human Aid & Advocacy.
