Before the audio websites like islamway & aswatalislam, then CDs by Ilmquest and awakening media, then google video and youtube, then Bayyinah and Qalam podcasts, and today Bayyinah TV and ILMFlix and so many more avenues of listening to lectures, there were these cassette tapes.


This was my first set of Islamic english cassettes I bought in the 90s. Little did I know that I would be given the opportunity to one day not only meet all of those I used to listen to, but even share a stage with them and even develop a close relationship with a few. I’m so grateful to Allah for that and so indebted to everyone who inspired me to learn my religion. I’m also so grateful for how far we’ve come in the dissemination of Islamic knowledge. May Allah bless all of those who have worked tirelessly for His sake (especially the ones behind the scenes) to make knowledge more accessible. ameen

And finally, Imam Siraj is the undisputed Imam of America in my opinion. I owe so much to him in particular for being a role model and a mentor.

About Akhi Soufyan

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden. In de naam van Allah, de Barmhartige. Als je goedheid van mij ziet, dan is dat de goedheid van de Schepper (God). Wees De Schepper dankbaar voor dat. Want ik ben daar niet de architect van, ik ben alleen de ontvanger.
