Welcome to my site. I am currently Aziz Foundation Lecturer in Islamic Studies at Ebrahim College in London, a forward-thinking Muslim seminary (my role also involves lecturing at Cambridge Muslim College).
My first book, based on my PhD thesis, is entitled The Qur’an and the Just Society and is published by Edinburgh University Press: here (also on Amazon). I also write articles on topics in Qur’anic studies and Islamic theology. For further details of my publications, see here.
I am writing my next major book, which is a work of contemporary Muslim theology, drawing substantially on the Maturidi tradition (especially its eponym Abu Mansur al-Maturidi), as well as modern analytic and continental philosophy. It will also be published by Edinburgh University Press.
At Ebrahim College, I teach an advanced course on Contemporary Qur’anic Studies on the ‘Alimiyya programme, while at the Cambridge Muslim College I teach the Revealed Foundations (i.e. Qur’an and Hadith) portion of the BA in Islamic Studies. I am also a core member of the Centre for Islamic Research and Education (CIRE), which is based at Ebrahim College and pursues research at the nexus of traditional Islamic disciplines and contemporary thought. In this capacity I co-ordinate the monthly CIRE Research Seminar Series.
I regularly present my research at academic conferences and seminars in the UK and internationally.
