Welcoming the Newborn - Dr Ahsan Hanif

I find these brothers in the UK to be sincere in providing explanations in fairness and completeness. I am sure that there are those who will say that they have no right to speak, because they are untrained and what not, but I encourage all who have discovered this to please look into the credentials of this man, Dr. Ahsan Hanif, before such accusations are made.

What I know about him is that he has proficiency in the Arabic language, having learned in the Islamic University in the holy city of Madinah, and as such, he has removed one barrier between understanding the knowledge of al-Islam, and has the ability to read texts and take their first hand meanings, and also discuss those meanings with other men of understanding to reinforce his own. That means, having the ability to understand the Qur'an at the basic level, read interpretation of the Qur'an, which is derived from deeper knowledge of Arabic language, what the prophet said and/or about the verse or things related to it, what his companions in the first three generations of Islam taught and applied from what they knew of the Qur'an, and what scholars during and after those generations understood from all of this (see my previous post).
