About Shaykh Mohammed Nizami

Shaykh Mohammed Nizami is a British Islamic scholar, academic, and public educator who explores real-world applications of the sharī’ah and is committed to making Islamic knowledge and guidance both accessible and meaningful at a grassroots level. He currently focuses on applied theology, Islamic law and ethics (fiqh) in a British context, and applied (Islamic) legal theory and philosophy (usul al-fiqh). He advocates a God-centred approach to all things, with a deep focus on Qur'anic narratives and prophetic guidance, and how they practically speak to our social, political and religious interactions today.

Alongside undertaking classical Islamic studies in Makkah (Masjid al-Haram) and Cairo, and graduating from Al Azhar University (BA) in Islamic law and legal theory, he has memorised the Qur'an and compilations of hadith as well as holding numerous ijāzāt. He specialises in the Islamic disciplines of fiqh (Islamic law) and usul-al fiqh (legal philosophy and methodology), aqīdah and usul-al din (theology), and tafsir (Qur'anic exegesis).

He holds a BA in theology and English literature, and a BSc in politics and international relations, graduating from a number of institutions including the University of London (LSE). He also holds a (first class) MA in political and legal theory from the University of Warwick and is pursuing doctoral training in political theory, to specialise as a western political theorist and philosopher. He has previously undertaken vocational teacher training and holds a PGCE from the Institute of Education (UCL).
