    Default Mufti Ebrahim Desai (db) [a brief intro]

    ALIM & IFTA COURSE:
    As well as being a Hafiz of the Quran, Mufti Ebrahim Desai (db) has studied sacred Islamic knowledge in Dabhel for nine years: commencing from the Arabic Language and comprising Usool-e-Fiqh, Hanafi Fiqh, Logic, Usool-e-Hadith, Hadith, Usool-e-Tafseer, Tafseer. Having completed the Dars-e-Nizamiyyah he then studied the principles of issuing Fatwas for two years in Dabhel under Mufti Ahmad Khanpuri Saheb, a renowned and leading Scholar in India, and another year under the grand Mufti of India, Mufti Mahmoodul Hasan Saheb (RA) (compiler of Fataawa Mahmoodiya).

    TASAWWUF:
    Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Desai (damat barakatuhum) has the honor of being the khalifah of his Shaykh Mufti Mahmood-ul-Hasan Gangohi (rahmatullah alahyi), the late grand mufti of India & the most senior khalifa of Hazrat Shaykh Maulana Zakariya Kandhalwi (rahmatullah alahi). As part of his training in Tasawwuf, Mufti Saab (db) spent time in the Khanqah of Dabhel where he used to lead Qiyaam-ul-Layl during the last ten nights of Ramadan.

    TEACHING:
    He currently teaches Mishkat, Sahih Bukhari and Tirmidhi and answers fatwa inquires received at Dar Ul Ifta at Madrasa Inaamiyah, Camperdown, South Africa.

    PUBLICATIONS:
    He has authored two fatwa books, Al Mahmood Vol. I & II, a book for Hadith students: Introduction to Hadith, and numerous articles on a wide spectrum of topics and issues relating to Islam.

    DAWAH TRIPS:
    Mufti Ebrahim Desai (db) also has been visiting the US & Canada for the past 10 years in an effort to educate and revive the Islamic spirit among the Muslims here.

    OTHER:
    Imam Muhammad ibn Hasan Al-Shaybani (rah) was asked why had had not compile a book on Zuhd (ascetism/piety). The Imam (rah) replied that he had: Kitaab ul Buyoo (The Book of Business Transactions) meaning that if a person were to make his business dealings Shariah Compliant, that would be an enormous act of Zuhd. This is even more relevant in our society where halal earnings have been given a very low priority. In the spirit of reviving concern for halal earnings and making Muslims aware that our earnings have a great effect on our Spirituality and Faith, Mufti Saab has hosted numerous workshops on making businesses Shariah Compliant. These workshops are held annually in South Africa, and were held this past Ramadan in the US.

    I can relate to you of his personal habits and all but cant tell you about his book untill I ask him.

    From my first impression, he is completely opposite than what we may perceive him to be from his fatawa. I mean he is very social person. You love to simply sit with him. Sometimes I just go to his office and sit in front of him.

    He talks softly, but not too soft. His classes are same as his lectures... with great vigour.. Sometimes he just stops the lesson and start saying that..Its shame how many of us become ashamed of who we are..."

    In general he is extremely busy person. mostly spends time working. Sometimes he takes his bench out in the open field and writes fatwa there in an open field under the sun. His desk is probably one of few in Madrassah that is properly organized. he doesnt like loose papers on his desk so he sorts them as soon as possible.

    He loves to help people out..I personaly know many who have been helped by him. He also likes jokes at time, but he feels much better when he see any of his student do something Islamic. I remember when I first gave my Friday Bayan in madrassah, he called me over and gave me a hadiya . Similarly, if he has a student in crowed he would not lead the salah rather tell the student to lead. He once told me that it makes him feel satisfied.

    I once told him after my Jummah Bayan at local mosque that had I known he was also in the crowd, I would not have dared to step near the mimbar.. and he said, "It gave me more pleasure to see my student give bayan to our locality".

    He normally wears a black Imama, shaves his mustache once in a while. and is always in motion. His humbleness is amazing, at times when I confront him by saying that I cannot say so and so to Fulan Fulan because he is my teacher, he replied , who would not listen to you and why would anyone listen to me?...

    He is very much worried about the Ummah. I have seen many a times him saying that we are not doing a portion of what we should do..even though I do not see him idle..always working..

    May Allah increase and continue Mufti Sahib's shadow and guidance upon us...Amin
