Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri is a writer-philosopher whose teachings combine knowledge and experience of the spiritual wisdom of the East with a practical and first hand understanding of the West. Shaykh Fadhlalla was raised in a family of several generations of Islamic spiritual leaders in the Holy City of Karbala. Educated in Europe and America, he worked in the petroleum industry and was an international businessman, all of which he eventually abandoned in pursuit of spiritual knowledge.
Shaykh Fadhlalla subsequently went on to establish Zahra Trust, a charitable foundation, with activities in several countries spanning education, health and publishing. His re-discovery of the universality of the true Islamic heritage enables him to understand and relate to the spiritual quest wherever it may arise, irrespective of culture or ethnic diversity. One of his main aims is to make accessible to younger generations the Prophetic way of life, through the discovery of the root and foundation of the divinely revealed message and its ever present perfect Creator.
