About us

This is strictly an unofficial site managed by the students of Shaykh Kamaluddin Ahmed.

Disclaimer: These transcripts are merely a humble effort at trying to preserve  Shaykh’s  amazing lectures  in words and in no way are they a substitute for listening to his original talks, although they may serve as a reminder for listeners.

Any material on this site may be used for non-commercial purposes, provided it is unaltered and this copyright information and a link to Shaykh’s official website ‘www.islamicspirituality.org‘ is included.


Shaykh Kamaluddin Ahmed was born and raised in Manhattan(New York City).  He studied Arabic & Islamic Civilization, Political Science, and Law at the University of Chicago, Columbia University, and the University of London. Shaykh Kamaluddin then spent many years studying the classic disciplines of Islamic learning including tafsir of the Qur’an and  narration and explanation of hadith from traditional scholars in Pakistan, receiving the  ‘Alim degree. He continued to pursue  advanced postgraduate studies in Islamic law and legal theory and was granted formal authorization (ijaza) to transmit legal opinion (ifta), receiving the Mufti degree.

For the past fifteen years, Shaykh Kamaluddin has remained in the close company of Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmed and was formally authorized in the discipline of Islamic Spirituality (tasawwuf) and purification of the heart (tazkiya) in 2002.  Shaykh Kamaluddin has lectured on Islam at various universities and institutions across the nation including LUMS, AKU, Shifa Medical College, Indus Valley, IBA, CBM, FAST-NU, Aitchison College, Karachi Grammar School, and others.

The Shaykh and his wife have also established institutes of classical Islamic learning for women in Lahore, Karachi, and Islamabad (www.zaynabacademy.org)

Zaynab Academy is a non-profit, non-political educational  institute dedicated to introducing women to Classical Islamic Learning and spirituality through a modern educational approach. Zaynab Academy is distinct in its embrace of the entire academic tradition of the Ahl-al-Sunnah wal Jam’a with respect for all the scolars of tafsir, hadith, fiqh and usul-ul-fiqh while focussing on the importance of  spiritual purification (Tazkiya) and inner reform (islah)

    Before the Shaykh left Pakistan, he delivered a talk for the youth that unfortunately wasn’t recorded. If your blog has an email id, kindly let me know so that I can send you a transcript of that talk (which I, Alhamdulilah, had the chance to attend).

    JazakAllah khayr.

    From which Jamia Shaykh Kamaluddin obtained ‘Alim degree? Pls also let us know the Shaikh’s or Institue’s name who gave him formal authorization (ijaza) to transmit legal opinion (ifta), receiving the Mufti degree.

    As is said that for the past fifteen years, Shaykh Kamaluddin has remained in the close company of Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmed and was formally authorized in the discipline of Islamic Spirituality (tasawwuf) and purification of the heart (tazkiya) in 2002. Can you provide Shajrah (Tree) of Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmed?

    Thanks
