About Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad

Born Timothy J. Winter in 1960, Abdal Hakim studied at the prestigious Westminster School in London, UK and later at the University of Cambridge, where he graduated with first class honours in Arabic in 1983. He then lived in Cairo for three years, studying Islam under traditional teachers at Al-Azhar, one of the oldest universities in the world. He went on to reside for three years in Jeddah, where he administered a commercial translation office and maintained close contact with Habib Ahmad Mashhur al-Haddad and other ulama from Hadramaut, Yemen.

Shaykh Dr. Abdal Hakim is the translator of a number of works, including two volumes from Imam al-Ghazali Ihya Ulum al-Din, and has written a number of books. His book Bombing Without Moonlight earned him the King Abdullah I Prize for Islamic Thought. He gives durus and khutbas from time to time and taught the works of Imam al-Ghazali in Britain, America, Spain, Australia, and Singapore. He has a traditional ijazah to teach Ihya' with isnad (chain) going all the way back to Imam Al-Ghazali himself. He appears frequently on BBC Radio and writes occasionally for a number of publications including The Independent and the Times Literary Supplement. He lives with his wife and children in Cambridge, UK.

He is the third generation of shayukh to serve at the Zawiya Mosque which has taught the works of Imam al-Ghazali continuously since its inception.

Shaykh Seraj studied for many years under his uncle Shaykh Mahdi Hendricks before departing to study usul al-fiqh at Umm ul-Qura university in Makkah. He remained in Makkah for 11 years as a student of Sayyid Muhammad bin ‘Alawi al-Maliki, the great muhadith, Maliki faqih and Sufi shaykh of the Ba’Alawi way.

Among many other mashaykh, Shaykh Seraj took ‘ijazah from the great Imam of the Yemen, Ahmad Taha Mashhur al-Haddad, and was appointed as the khalifah of Sayyid Muhammad bin ‘Alawi al-Maliki in South Africa.

He is currently reading for his PhD at the University of South Africa, after having been awarded a Masters degree (cum laude) for his thesis at the University of Cape Town on religious practices in the Cape region.
