Bismillah hir-Rahma nir-Raheem. In the name of Allah the Most
Beneficent the Most Merciful. All praises are due to Allah, Lord
of the Worlds. Greetings and Salutations upon His beloved Prophet
Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).
Maulana Ahmed Suleman Khatani was born in Durban, South Africa.
He completed his Hifz ul Quraan at an early age. He then enrolled
into Madrasah Arabia Islamia, Azaadville, South Africa where he
completed his Aalim Faadhil course in 1993. Maulana studied under
many great scholars like Sheikhul Hadith Hadhrat Maulana Fazlur
Rahman Azmi Saheb (DB) and Hadhrat Maulana Abdul Hamid Ishaq Saheb
Since graduating Maulana has dedicated his life to the service
of deen. He has traveled through many countries in the world spreading
the deen of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’aalaa) and Our beloved
Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), delivering lectures and sermons
at various Masaajids, Ijtimaas and gatherings across the globe.
Maulana Khatani uses a simplistic, eloquent and distinctive
style of explaining the purpose of human life and its creation
and often uses scientific examples to support his argument. Maulana
Khatani’s style is such that it rekindles the spark of Imaan
in people bringing them back to the Sunnah and the Islamic way
of life. Maulana emphasizes that one should bring back Salaah
into ones lives, forgoing of ones sins and spending some time
in the path of Allah.
Maulana Khatani’s vast experience and in-depth knowledge
of Quraan and Ahaadeeth as well as keeping all the Islamic perspectives
in mind has made him amongst one of the most respected scholars
in the country. May Allah continue to take the effort of deen
from Maulana Khatani, grant him long life and accept all the work
that he has done.
May Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'aalaa) help us understand the value
of 'Ulamaa & may He accept their efforts & make it a means
of our success along with theirs
