Ustadh Salman Younas
“Outward knowledge is a means to inward purification, and inward purification is a means to being with Allah without attachments. So, do not hold back from seeking sacred knowledge and do not be miserly in benefiting others with it.”
Ustadh Salman Younas credits two things with inspiring his journey as a student of knowledge: Shaykh Faraz Rabbani instilled in him a love of the sacred sciences with rare-seen balance and knowledge; and reading about the lofty states of the spiritually-realized made clear to him the reality of sacred knowledge and its purpose.
Born and raised in New York, Ustadh Salman Younas graduated from Stony Brook University with a degree in Political Science and Religious Studies. After studying the Islamic sciences online and with local scholars in New York, Ustadh Salman moved to Amman. There he studies Islamic law, legal methodology, belief, hadith methodology, logic, Arabic, and tafsir.
His teachers include: Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, Shaykh Salah Abu’l Hajj, Shaykh Ashraf Muneeb, Shaykh Ahmad Hasanat, Shaykh Hamza Karamali, Shaykh Ahmad Snobar, Shaykh Ali Hani, Shaykh Hamza Bakri, Ustadh Rajab Harun and others.
Ustadh Salman’s personal interests include research into the fields of law/legal methodology, hadith, theology, as well as political theory, government, media, and ethics. He is also an avid traveler and book collector. He currently resides in Amman with his wife.
