Mufti Muhammad Suleman Sadiq
Born in Washington, DC and raised in Pakistan, Mufti Suleman completed his academic studies and then began his pursuit of studying the sacred sciences at Jamia Al Hasanain in Faisalabad, Pakistan. He had the honor to complete the 8-year Alamiyyah program under the direct tutelage of renowned scholars, Maulana Tariq Jamil and Shaykh Ramzi Al Habib, amongst others.
After his graduation, he dedicated a year in the path of Allah, as part of his formal Islamic training, and then enrolled in the prestigious Jamia Binoria in Karachi, Pakistan, to complete his specialization (Takhasus) in Ahadith under the instruction and care of Shaykh Abdul Hameed Chishti.
He attained distinction of merit in his class with the extraordinary accomplishment of memorizing the entire Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Riyadus Saliheen, and Muntakhab Ahadith. By the Grace of Allah, Mufti Suleman also memorized the entire Quran in one month in Ramadan during his Alamiyyah program.
In 2012, he returned back to the United States, to bring the fruits of his experiences and learning in North America, and served as an imam in Louisville, Kentucky. However, seeing the greater needs of the American Muslim community to have access to sacred knowledge, Mufti Suleman established a branch of Jamia Al-Hasanain in Indianapolis under the guidance of his teachers. He directed and guided its vision and mission for 4 years, conducting classes of sacred knowledge, before moving to Ohio and co-founding Jamia Osmania along with Shaykh Aiyub Hansbhai (رحمه الله).
In 2019, Mufti Suleman Sadiq cofounded and established the Islamic Center of Centerville, serving as scholar, teacher, mentor and leader to the community of Centerville and beyond. ICC places particular emphasis on catering for the educational activities of all age groups, facilitating Alimiyyah programs for brothers and sisters, study circles, community programs and an Islamic school. Mufti Suleman has been committed to supervise and lead all of the educational and social initiatives and continues to further his own journey of sacred knowledge by completing his specialization in Islamic Jurisprudence. His presence is a blessing and a source of pride for the Centerville Muslim community. May Allah preserve and increase his good works and reward him generously for all that he does for the community.
