About Shaykh Talal Ahdab
Until recently, Shaykh Talal was CEO of the Razi Education, a provider of educational solutions for K-12, colleges and universities in the private and public sector. From 2008-10, Razi was commissioned by ZHIC to develop a curriculum for New Muslims that include 11 books, four audio CDs and four DVDs. Since then, the series was translated into five languages. In 2010, the Islamic Teacher Education Program (ITEP) was launched; a one-year online certificate developed in collaboration with OISE, University of Toronto.
Shaykh Talal studied the Islamic disciplines and over the last 25 years, he has been teaching the Islamic disciplines to senior students and junior scholars. With focus on Tafsir, Usul and Theology, his interests include modern challenges and how to extract solutions from Islam’s rich tradition of knowledge and scholarship to address those challenges. In addition to teaching privately, he sometimes serves as Khatib in various mosques in the Greater Toronto Area. He also lectured on Prophetic pedagogy at OISE at the University of Toronto.
