Samir is a teacher whose ability to break down complex topics for the average Muslim and also have nuanced discussion with the more intellectually curious student is unmatched. In a world of theological and existential crisis, he doesn’t shy away from the more ‘difficult’ questions of the young Muslim.Tayyab Tanveer – University Student
It is clear from his seamless incorporation of both classical and contemporary texts, that Shaykh Samir is well read in his fields. It is so refreshing to meet a teacher who is adamant on living in the present whilst still carrying the light of our tradition.Saif Islam – Medical Student

Knowledge of subject matter is not enough for an educator. Just as important is an understanding of ones students and their contexts. This holds especially holds true to our lives where religious worldviews are marginalized to only occaisonal ritual practice. Shaykh Samir not only comes with a familiar upbringing as many of us but he also with an extensive command of the islamic sciences. The final icing on the cake is the ease with which he is able to string ideas together to make them digestible to students.Ashja Haider – University Student
