Innal Hamduliallah… Shaykh Morsy is my Mentor and I am his protegee.  When the website was made over 10 years ago, Shaykh Morsy was the one who taught all the classes, and I was just a student. Morsy would log on everyday and spend 12 hours teaching the basics of Islam… the same classes that I teach now on Sunnahfollowers.net.  His friend Shaykh Hassan joined us and both he and Shaykh Hassan would teach around the clock.  This went on for 6 years.  After the 6th year, Morsy was no longer able to spend that type of time on the net teaching…so it was then that he told me to take over teaching the people.  I was not wanting to do this but Morsy said I was ready and that I was his best student.  So thus, that is how I began to teach. 

Morsy has always been the one behind our website.  He is the one who approves the books I use.  He also checks behind me to make sure everything I teach is in accordance to the Quran and the Authentic Sunnah.  If I make a mistake, he will correct me and have me send out emails to the people with the correction.  

Morsy is a man devoted to the Sunnah.  Even the name of our website was chosen by him.  Where there are so many scholars out their who follow the extreme view on things, Morsy takes the middle course,  just as our prophet(sa) would do.  He is kind, gentle and understanding..but he can turn into a ferocious lion when he feels the limits of Allah or his Prophet (sa) have been transgressed.

That is Shaykh Morsy in a nutshell.

He is the best teacher I have ever had…but even still I do not follow him blindly.  To do so would mean that I have learned nothing from him.

I pray Allah preserves him for us and that he bestows upon him paradise…ameen!
