Brief about him:
Nouman Ali Khan was the born to a Pakistani diplomat working in East Berlin, Germany. His father’s service for Pakistan foreign office meant flocking to pastures new every now and then. A brief spell in Saudi Arabia followed his stay in Germany. Nouman’s family later got stationed to USA. When Nouman reached the age of 14, his family moved to Pakistan while he stayed back in the US to complete his higher studies. It is perhaps his upbringing in different countries and exposure to multi-cultural environments that aided his understanding and widened his appeal.
Next he found himself as an average American teenager, who according to his own words “behaved and lived like all teenagers in the US lived” and was far removed from religion. It was in his later teens after he joined a college that he befriended a person who rekindled the religious zeal in him. His friend brought about the change without active proselytization.
Mr. Khan mentions that the urge to become a practicing Muslim led him to re-learn the basics of Islam. He had to relearn Salat (the daily prayer) which he had not practiced for a while. He then joined a religious society in his campus where his religious thought and practice was further consolidated. However, just like with most Islamic campus groups in the US, he become part of the “Aqeeda Brigade”. It should be noted that teenage idealism mixes well with a divisive ideologies. And so just like his peers, through the tools that discouraged plurality, he became judgmental of anyone who practiced their Islam even slightly different from his own.
This led him to be dismissive, differentiating and hypercritical. He however was quick to realize the flaw in his own approach.
It was a Ramadan night in a New York mosque, that set him on the trajectory on which he is still today. That night the after the end “traweeh” prayers, the portion of the Quran read during the prayers was to be explained by a scholar from Pakistan, Maulana Abdus Samii. It was during the scholar’s lecture that Khan realized what he wanted to do with his life. He wanted to learn and explain the Quran.
He went to the speaker and asked him how he could do the same i.e. explain the Quran in a manner he had just heard. The Maulana (scholar) directed him to learn Arabic, which he did, starting 1999.
Nouman Ali Khan is the CEO and founder of Bayyinah Institute (an Arabic and Quran studies educational institution in the United States.) in 2006, after serving as the professor of Arabic at Nassau Community College. His current residence is in Dallas, Texas. He also lectures internationally on the matters of Tafsir and learning Arabic to understand the Quran. He has been named one of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre of Jordan.
Khan does not participate in any fundraiser event in any capacity. He does not accept requests for video, audio or written endorsements of Islamic projects, institutions & programs. Regarding the topic, Khan has said, "Even though I would love to engage, I simply don't have time to look deeply into all the projects, their history & their contributions. I don't feel comfortable endorsing anything without thoroughly knowing each and every aspect of it. Regardless, I appreciate all the different inspiring efforts taking place throughout the world and pray for their success."
