Shaykh Abu Sulayman al- Muhajir received his M.A in Education, and was a University lecturer for several years as well as an educator of the Islamic sciences and a khateeb (preacher) in several Masajid in Australia. He was well known both within Australia as well as internationally for his daw’ah work, which included many lessons and lectures which were widely available online, and covered a wide variety of topics and issues such as Wala’ wa Bara’, Aqeedah, the issues of the Muslim youth, topical and contemporary issues like the affairs of Muslim prisoners and the situation and conditions of Muslims suffering under oppression in places like Syria and many other topics by which he benefited the Ummah. Insha’Allah.
In addition to teaching, Shaykh Abu Sulayman also devoted much of his time to studying and has had the opportunity to sit and benefit from many people of knowledge, Shaykh Abdullah bin ‘Aqeel (R.A) and Shaykh Ibn Jibreen (R.A) being among the more notable, and others, not mentioned here for security reasons — as they still live under the oppression of the tyrants. Seeing the deterioration of the situation in the Ummah in general, and in Bilad al-Sham in particular, Shaykh Abu Sulayman left his final semester of his M.A work in Tafsir and the Sciences of the Qur’an in order to make Hijrah to the Mubarak (blessed) land of al-Sham and to try to best benefit the Ummah by means of knowledge given life on limbs and applied directly for the benefit of the Deen and Muslims.
Having joined the ranks of the Mujahideen, the Shaykh continues his studies and teaching, as well as standing alongside and encouraging his brothers, on and off the battlefield. He has also helped to establish many Islamic programs, travelling around Syria offering Islamic instruction, mediation and legal services to both the Muhajireen and Ansar as well as everyday citizens.
Shaykh Abu Sulayman al-Muhajir currently holds a position as a member of the General Islamic Council of Jabhat al-Nusrah, where he continues to strive his utmost to make the Word of Allah uppermost and to protect the religion, honour, blood and wealth of the Muslims alongside his fellow Mujahideen. We ask Allah to accept from him his Hijrah, Jihad and deeds and to guide and protect him.
