Fond Memories of Qum

Posted on Mon, 2015-01-12 12:16

The Qum Office was honored with the visit of Sheikh Mohammed Ali Ismail, ex-manager of The World Federation Qum office. A meeting was held between Head of Islamic Education, Sheikh Kumail Rajani and Sheikh Ismail.

Shaykh Ismail, originally from Peterborough, graduated in Law. He then went to Qum where he studied in the Hawza for ten years, specializing in Qur’an and Hadith Studies. While in Qum, he was Manager of the World Federation Islamic Education Board’s Qum Office for three years.

He then spent two years in Damascus, Syria where he taught and trained future Ministers of Religion at the Islamic Institute for Post Graduate Studies. Shaykh Ismail resettled in the UK in 2010 and is currently BA Hawza Studies Programme Leader and a lecturer at the Islamic College.

After meeting with Sheikh Rajani he said: “I was delighted to visit WF Qum Office.  The memories are so fresh. There is a lot of scope for this office and I pray for its consistent success.” The Qum Office thanks him for his time and prays that Allah (SWT) increases his Taufeeqat so that the community can continue to benefit from his services.
