Shaykh Hamza Karamali
Hamza earned his BASc. and MASc. in Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. He then worked briefly as a Software Engineer before moving abroad to study the Islamic sciences full-time in private settings with distinguished traditional scholars in Jordan, Kuwait and the UAE, reading and memorizing traditional works in all of the Islamic sciences.
He taught the Islamic sciences online at Qibla.com, then taught advanced Arabic grammar and rhetoric at Qasid Institute, and then joined Kalam Research & Media, where he worked for three years, designing, managing, and participating in research and education projects that studied (a) questions about God and the universe that lie on the intersection of the traditional Islamic sciences, modern science, and contemporary analytic philosophy, and (b) how to integrate the sciences of the modern university into a traditional Islamic-studies curriculum.
He joined SeekersHub in 2016 with the goal of using his experience to help Muslims strengthen their faith, actions, and love of Allah and His Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) in the midst of contemporary spiritual and intellectual challenges. He continues his traditional studies in Amman, Jordan, where he lives with his wife and five children.
