Imam Osman Dar al-Azhari
Imam Osman Saeed Dar al-Azhari is a young scholar from Rochdale (UK) who from a very early age had a deep interest and passion for studying Islam. This led him to studying the Islamic Sciences at Jamia Al-Karam in Nottinghamshire and later futhering his studies at the renowned Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt. Here he gained a BA in Islamic Theology specialising in the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
Imam Osman Dar is also a qualified secondary school teacher and has previously worked as an Imam at HMP Manchester (formerly Strangeways Prison). Currently, Imam Osman Dar is working with HRH Prince of Wales on his MOSAIC project which is designed to support young Muslims and their peers growing up in deprived areas, whilst also breaking down barriers and suspicions within British society.
