Much to the chagrin of the staunchly secular among us, religion shows no sign of going away. Predictions of the demise of religion, faith, tradition – and even God – have consistently been proven wrong.
God is much greater than anything we can imagine. Hamza Yusuf

Yusuf was born as Mark Hanson in Walla Walla, Washington, January 1, 1958, to two academics working at Whitman College and he was raised in northern California.
Yusuf has taken a stance against religious justifications for terrorist attacks He described the 9/11 attacks as “an act of mass murder, pure and simple.” Condemning the attacks, he has also stated “Islam was hijacked… on that plane as an innocent victim.
Jordan’s Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre currently places him 36th on its list of the top 500 most influential Muslims in the world. The magazine Egypt Today described him as a kind of theological rock star, “the Elvis Presley of western Muslims.” In its 2016 edition Yusuf is described “as one of the foremost authorities on Islam outside of the Muslim world” by The 500 Most Influential Muslims, edited by John Esposito and Ibrahim Kalin.
