Biography

I was born in Dar-es-salaam in Tanzania. My father was a colonial administrator in the then extant British Empire. By the time I was walking the old colonies were getting their independance, and we moved back to the UK.
At the age of ten I was sent to a Roman Catholic Monastic boarding school, Gilling Castle and then onto Ampleforth College.
It was there that I really started to question what life was all about and how much sense the traditions I was being brought up with really made.
My Dad was working for Barcalys Bank International and was sent to Cairo to set up a brach of the Bank there. That's where I spent ten years of holidays and the contrast of cultures only spurred me question further.
It was while I was working in the City that my delving into every aspect of spirituality, philosophy and psychology came to a head. I was fed up. There were perhaps no answers. Maybe life was just about getting rich and enjoying yourself. It was then I picked up a copy of the Quran.
Upon reading it I was convinced that it was revelation from God, and thus started my journey into Islam.
I started to seriously practice the religion in 1987 and since that time I've been involved in letting others know about this Divinely ordained way of life.
I now work in the London Central Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre as the Visits and English Dawa Co-ordinator.
My travels have taken me to many places in the world and have met all sorts of people.
These pages are about those travels and meetings. I pray that within them you find benefical knowledge that spurs you on to righteous actions.
In the end we're all children of Adam, and Adam was made from dust. Its not our race, colour or culture that makes any one of us better than another, but the degree to which we recognise our Creator and adhere to His commands.

Interests
