Sidi Wendell Uthman Ames’

Sidi Wendell Uthman Ames’ story to Islam begins at a hip-hop store in Southern California where he worked during high school. He watched his manager take breaks during the day to pray Salah in a back room. A group of Filipino converts soon began visiting the store. A Filipino-American himself, this further triggered his interest in Islam. The Filipino converts befriended him, and Sidi Wendell took his Shahada (Declaration of Faith) with them at age 17, MashaAllah! Sidi Wendell then began driving with them to the Bay Area to take classes with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf. This is pre-Zaytuna College. Sidi Uthman would eventually move to the Bay Area and live with Sidi Usama Canon. Sidi Wendell is now a well-known munshid (reciter). He shares his beautiful voice at gatherings all over the world. He is frequently performing at MCC East Bay, Al-Maqasid, and Ta’leef Collective.
