peace be upon you

My friend just asked me who my favourite sheikh was and why?  It was a tough question, really...

I like so many shuyukh...alhamdulillah, it's really amazing when someone can touch you with their words, and you leave their lectures (virtual or otherwise) with a sense of upliftment Smiley having learnt something new, or put a new spin on something...

Do you have a favourite sheikh, and why?  Those of you who can actually hear/see the sheikh in real life, LIVE, are really lucky:) mashaAllah...

Salaams,

Shaykh Nuh H M Keller rahimahullah

Shaykh Hamzah Yusuf rahimahullah

Shaykh Tariq Jamil rahimahullah

For those of you who understand urdu, look up Tariq Jamil on youtube!

As for why do I like them, because they totally reach to one's heart mashaAllah. I haven't listened to Hamzah Yusuf live though.

Wasalam.

One of my favorites is Shaykh Yasir Qadhi. Reason being is that whatever sentence he says is almost always backed up by a hadith or an ayah, masha-allah. And he's very clear.

peace be upon you

duh, I forgot to post my favourites...

Sis UmmIbraheem, I really like Sh. Yasser al Qadhi too. I find it amazing that he is both an engineer and a sheikh, and mashaAllah, I think he can really contribute to our Ummah...he opened the door to a better understanding of Tawheed for me, and mashaAllah, he always has something to teach everyone. 

I also like Sh AlHabeeb Ali Jifri...he is *so* sincere, mashaAllah, and he speaks very eloquently (after you get over the g instead of q  Tongue ) And he has brought me to tears so many times, I find him very inspirational.  If he knew english, man, he would really rock!

Sh. Moutassem al Hameedi always has something uplifting to say.  I have only ever seen him on TV, but mashaAllah, I love that even when the audeince says something daft, he can reinvent what they said, and make it into something amazing, without letting them feel stupid.  He was my numero uno, until he made some comments about women who work/leave the house etc...i was like , man, alhamdulillah, nobody is perfect.  He recites quraan really beautifully, and mashaAllah, I can really feel Allah's words when he recites them.  as he does, mashaAllah...

Also, Sh M. Ratib anNabulsi is cool.  He is really tuned in to the society, and I love the way he speaks.  Also always learn something new. Plus he speaks relatively decent Arabic, which is always a plus.

I have so many, these are the ones that popped into my mind right now.

I think the ones i dont really like, are those who are extremely serious, dont know any sort of kindness in their speech, and basically just make Islam about the Haraam, and about Jahannum.

Sis Cat, I liek Sh Suliman Moola too. Have experienced him live several times...but he always seems to get me to the point where I think, man he is great...then he says something seriously off, and I get deflated again...so he often dissappoints.

Ok, salam

Sheikh Aa'idh al-Qarni and Amr Khaled --with subtitles, of course Smiley

Sheikh Yusuf Estes

Sheikh Yasir Al-Qadhi

I haven't seen any of their talks live but I don't really feel it makes much of a difference..it's the message that's important right?

Salam Alaikum--
One sheik not mentioned is Muhammad Alshareef. One of his lectures called Have you Tasted Jannah brought me to tears and was sooo inspirational. Also enjoy Sheik Hamza and suhaib webb.

as salaamu alaykum,

I've been listening to a CD Set called 'Sacred Law in Secular Lands' and it has made me really, really love Sh. Bin Bayyah for his wisdom and the depth of his knowledge... it's amazing how the more knowledgeable someone is, the more broad the deen seems from his/her perspective, and reasonable, logical, and beautiful...

Sh. Habib Ali Jafri is also an amazing speaker.  His Arabic is very faseeh (once you learn the ga for qaf thing Smiley)  He is really one of those people who reminds me of Rasulullah saw when I see him/hear him.

Dr. Tariq Suwaidan is also a very nice speaker to listen to [though I guess he would be considered more of a da'iy], he has a great program on the Risala Channel called al-Wasatiyya, Arabic speakers should check it out Smiley

Hmm I have to think more about English speaking shuyukh... but Imam Suhaib always keeps it real and is very sincere.  I love how Imam Zaid Shakir is always in touch with political/social realities and can relate to them in his talks, and of course Sh. Mokhtar Maghraoui is one of my all time favorites, for opening the doors to spiritual depths and tazkiyat un-nafs [purification of the self] for us lay people....

Dr. Ingrid Mattson is very inspiring, to see a woman with such confidence, intelligence and education... she has a new book out on the Quran which I'm really psyched about Smiley

may Allah bless all of our teachers and the ulema  Kiss

wsalaam,

This is a good, but very difficult question Smiley I like many of those mentioned by others. I think we can take the benefit from most scholars if we try inshaAllah, but I don't like the one's that call to exclusivity of their madhab/idealogy.
