(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

Who is shaikh yusuf qaradawi

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi is an Egyptian Muslim scholar and preacher best known for his popular al Jazeera program, ash-Shariah wal-Hayat ("Shariah and Life"), and IslamOnline (a website that he helped to create in 1997), where he offers opinions and religious edicts based on his understanding of the Quran and the Sunnah. He has also published some fifty books, including The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam and Islam: The Future Civilization.


 

Although al-Qaradawi has long had one of the more prominent roles within the thought leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood,, he has several times turned down offers for the official directorship role of the organization. Among many scholars, he is considered a moderate conservative, who seeks to explain and adapt the ideals of the Islamic lifestyle with those of modern society.

 

Shaikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi was born in Egypt on September 9, 1926. Following his father's death, the two year old Yusuf was raised by his uncle. His family urged him to either run a grocery store or to become a carpenter. Instead, he read and memorized the entire Quran by the time he was nine years old. Yusuf was impressed by the teachings of Shaikh Hasan al-Banna during his youth, and was first imprisoned under the reign of the tyrannous Egypt monarch in 1949, then three times after the publication of his popular book The Tyrant and the Scholar. He attended the Al-Azhar Theological Seminary before moving into self exile to the State of Qatar.

 

Shaikh Yusuf worked at the Egyptian Ministry of Religious Endowments, was the Dean of the Islamic Department at the Faculties of Shariah and Education in Qatar, and served as chairman of the Islamic Scientific Councils of Algerian Universities and Institutions, and as the head of the European Council for Fatwa and Research

 

Although we personally have not had the opportunity to meet or interact with Brother Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi personally, many amongst the scholars we have met hold Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi and his opinions on Islamic Jurisprudence in extremely high regard and some even consider him to be amongst the best scholars of modern times. And Allah Alone Knows Best.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
