Ustadh Ubaydullah Evans is ALIM’s first Scholar-in-Residence. He converted to Islam while in high school. Upon conversion, Ustadh Ubaydullah began studying some of the foundational books of Islam under the private tutelage of local scholars while simultaneously pursuing a degree in journalism from Columbia.

Since then, he has studied at Chicagoland’s Institute of Islamic Education (IIE), in Tarim, Yemen, and Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, where he is the first African-American to graduate from its Shari’a program.

Ustadh Ubaydullah also instructs with the Ta’leef Collective and the Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) at times. Follow him on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/UbaydullahEvans

For Black History Month, resources on Black Muslim experiences

Black Muslim history is defined by centuries of pioneering presence, resilience, and struggle for racial, religious, and social justice. Black Muslims represent one-third of the American Muslim community, lead in rooting and growing Islam in America, and have borne the brunt of racial injustice and racism throughout our country’s history.

Join us in our ongoing effort to highlight Black Muslim experiences through research and actionable resources, and share with your networks our Black Muslim Experiences toolkit, which includes:

  • Resources on Black Muslim youth
  • Research and resources on Muslim experiences of racism
  • Books on Black Muslims in the United States
  • Data on demographics, faith, social justice, and more
