RIS Speaker Biography – Mufti Ismail Menk


Mufti Ismail Menk
Mufti Ismail Musa Menk was born in Harare, Zimbabwe, and is perhaps best known for his engagements as a guest speaker in South Africa each Ramadan.

He was tutored by his father, Mufti Musa Menk, who is a well-known scholar and da’ee (caller to Islam).He completed his hifz and recitation courses at an early age and learnt the Arabic and Urdu languages whilst studying Shariah under his father. At the same time, he attended an Academic College in Harare where he completed his secondary secular education. He then attained a degree in Shariah from the University of Madinah and later specialised in Iftaa at Darul Uloom Kantharia in Gujarat.

Mufti Menk is a broad minded, popular motivational speaker who travels widely on speaking engagements, while still teaching in Harare and serving the Muslim communities of Zimbabwe as an imam and member of Zimbabwe’s Majlisul Ulama. He also contributes towards the Islamic content of various media networks,and allows his lectures to be copied and distributed free of charge – as long as the core of its content is not edited.

He is also an experienced social worker and counsellor; and enjoys spending time with the underprivileged.

    Alhamdulillah. I have listened a few lectures of Mufti Ismail Ibn Musa Monk. His way of lecturing is not only unique but also conveys the core principle of Islam. He is always intending to make every listener to think and ponder the prime aqeeda of Islam. It makes us to keep our prime objective always at the back of our mind meaning how can one ensure a berth in the heavenly abode.

    Accidently, i turned on my TV, and I couldnt stop litening to Sheikh Menk the next day on my way to work my fiance called me on my cell phone and was asking? did you hear the preacher yesterday at dawn? I answered in the affirmative, then she said, then what did he talked about and I recalled the thrust of his message, then she said to me I loved this man. Allah has given him the power of speach and the power to be listened to, may the good Lord bless him and his parents, fairly opned minded man of God, he is really a gift to the muslim world
