Sidi Mahdy Amine is a Zaytuna College alumnus and practicing attorney. He also teaches Islamic Studies at ILM Tree and he serves as Convert Care Coordinator for Ta’leef Collective. “I want people to feel the true beauty of Islam when they encounter Ta’leef. Was not our Prophet (upon him peace and blessings) the radiant embodiment of outer and inner beauty? One who saw him was in awe, and one who knew him fell in love. I hope Taleef translates that experiential beauty to a relevant American context while honoring the ethos and principles of the rich Islamic tradition.” Ustadh Mahdy Amine was born and raised in Chicago. Attending Universal School, he served as captain of the high school basketball team, then graduated from Loyola University Chicago at the age of 19 with a double bachelor in economics and political science, and after that from the University of Minnesota School of Law-all while serving as President of the Muslim Students Association at each respective institution. Concurrent with his studies and work, Mahdy helped found CAIR Chicago, has been teaching for nearly 20 years, and served as a member of the band Noorification, which released two albums, and four music videos, and performed at over 100 national and international venues. Mahdy is married, has three little girls, and is blessed to be a survivor. In 2012, Mahdy resigned from his job as Corporate Counsel for Dell Corporation to attend Zaytuna College, the first-ever accredited Muslim liberal arts college in the US, graduating with the first class in 2014. He then visited and studied briefly in Tarim, Yemen. Mahdy currently works as Senior Vice President, General Counsel of a global cancer diagnostic and research laboratory, teaches Islamic Studies at Ilm Tree, a home school co-op in Lafayette, CA, regularly delivers sermons at various communities, and serves as Convert Care Coordinator at Ta’leef Collective in Fremont, California.
