Being initially inspirited to travel the path of sacred knowledge by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and Habib Ali al-Jifry in the late nineties, Yasser Qureshy has studied in traditional Islamic seminaries in Syria and Turkey, following the long established curriculum of Islamic sciences. He graduated first in his Arabic and Islamic Studies program in Damascus, Syria. As well as being formally trained in a number of Islamic sciences during his seminary studies, he has further augmented his Islamic education with more focussed instruction with scholars such as Shaykh Ayman Shawwa, Shaykh Rushdi Qalam, Shaykh Mujir Khatib, Shaykh Mahmud Masri, Shaykh Ibrahim Khalil al-Ahsa’i, Shaykh Muhammad Shuqayr, and Shaykh Salih al-Ghursi. As part of his Kalam work, Yasser recently collaborated with Shaykh Saeed Foudeh on a paper discussing the Kalam Cosmological Argument.
In addition, he has read for a M.A in Medieval Arabic Thought, and is currently reading for a PhD in Philosophical Theology at the University of Cambridge in collaboration with Dr Tim Winter. His thesis considers some key conceptual doctrines of the early Ash‘ari school.
At present he is a Research Fellow at ISAR, Istanbul, and also convenes and teaches modules on Western Intellectual History, and Logic and Critical Thinking, at the Cambridge Muslim College.
