Ustadh Abdullah (Anik) Misra
Ustadh Abdullah Anik Misra was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, into a Hindu family of North Indian heritage. He became Muslim at the age of 18, graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Business Administration, worked briefly in marketing, and then went abroad with his wife to seek religious knowledge full-time, first in Tarim, then in the West Indies, and finally in Amman, Jordan, where he has focussed his traditional studies on the sciences of Sacred Law (fiqh), hadith, Islamic belief, tajwid, and sira. He now works at Qasid Institute and lives with his wife, three daughters, and two sons in Amman. He has worked with new Muslims ever since his conversion and is moved by a desire to present Islam in a way that is relevant to Muslims’ daily lives.
