Shaykh Rami Nsour spent a number of years in Mauritania, where he studied at some of the foremost Islamic Colleges (mahdaras). He is the Co-Founder of the Tayba Foundation, one of the few Muslim organizations in the US serving incarcerated Muslims, providing them much-needed Islamic education and essential life skills training and assistance upon re-entry.

“The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “People are ores like the ores of gold and silver. The best of them in jahiliyya are the best of them in Islam if they gain fiqh (understanding).” We should not see in ourselves and others what is immediately apparent but rather look for the potential that can be attained. This potential is unlocked through knowledge of Islam.”

Rami Nsour was born in Amman, Jordan, and moved to the United States at the age of 9. During his college years, he attended classes taught by shuyukh in the San Francisco Bay Area, notably Shaykh Khatri bin Bayba, Shaykh Abdullah bin Ahmedna, and Shaykh Hamza Yusuf. With their encouragement, Rami embarked on a journey to Mauritania in 1998. In Mauritania, he studied with some of the greatest scholars of our times, such as his foremost, Shaykh Murabit al Hajj bin Fahfu. He was also blessed to study with Murabit Muhammad al-Amin bin al-Shaykh, Murabit Ahmed Fal bin Ahmedna, Shaykh Abdullah bin Ahmedna, Shaykh Tahir ibn Murabit al Hajj and Shaykh Sa’d Bu among others. Rami completed studies in the subjects of Qu’ran, ‘Aqeedah (Belief), Fiqh (Law), Nahu (grammar), Ihsan (spiritual purification), and adab (manners).

He has memorized the final text of Maliki fiqh, Mukhtasar Khalil, and has been granted permission by his shuyukh to teach. In addition to his extensive study of fiqh, he was afforded the unique opportunity to attend one-on-one sessions with his teachers, where he would engage them in countless hours of discussion on the application of fiqh in general and specifically for those living in the West.

Rami has translated traditional Islamic texts from Arabic, including various works on Maliki fiqh and several works of the great Mauritanian scholar Shaykh Muhammad Mawlud, including Birr al-Walidayan (The Rights of Parents), Ishraq al-Qarar (The Spiritual Aspects of Prayer), and the Adab of Sadaqa. He has also translated a versified version of Adab of the Student entitled Iya’ant al Mutafahim (The Assistance of the Student) by Shaykh Muhammad al Hasan as well as the original Taleem al Muta’llim by Shaykh Zarnuji.

In addition, Rami has dedicated much of his time to teaching, conducting seminars, and counseling. He has spent a great deal of his time teaching and aiding Muslims in prison and has seen how knowledge unlocks human potential. His students in the prisons have, in turn, taught countless people and invited many people to Islam. He was instrumental in co-founding Dar as-Salaam, a project dedicated to building and supporting a school in Mauritania. Shaykh Rami serves as Senior Instructor at SeekersHub Global. Rami is the co-founder of the Tayba Foundation, which has a correspondence program for Muslim inmates (http://www.taybafoundation.org/). In addition to traditional teaching licenses (ijazah), Rami holds a B.A. in Human Development with a Focus on Early Childhood. Rami resides in the San Francisco Bay Area, is married, and has two children.

We are all teachers in some respect or another. What would happen to our teaching if we incorporated some elements from the example of Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم ?

We can all become better teachers, no matter what stage of life we are in or in what capacity we are teaching. We can continually enhance our ability to be sincere and effective teachers by learning from his methods.

Even if we don’t see teaching as an aspect of our lives, we can also grow closer to the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم by knowing him better.


In prisons across America, nearly 1 in 10 prisoners turn to Islam to start a new life and rekindle their relationship with God. But access to learning the deen is scarce behind bars, and anti-Muslim prejudice is common.

Tayba Foundation is one of the few American organizations serving Muslims in prison nationwide. We offer a comprehensive Islamic curriculum to both help new converts cover the essentials of their faith and dedicated students to reach a level where they can become teachers in local communities.

Tayba also offers programs to help incarcerated Muslims overcome challenges from their past, such as trauma, addiction, mental health disorders, etc.
