Mawlana Saaleh Baseer is a brilliant young scholar of Hanafi law and Mughal history from the Bay Area. After completing his memorization of the Qu'ran, he received his Alim degree from Darul Uloom Azaadville in South Africa. Afterwards he went on to pursue a Bachelor's degree from Columbia University where he majored in History. Most recently he has completed a Master's from the University of Chicago and is wrapping up his studies at Darul Qasim College where he has trained to be a mufti(scholar qualified to give legal rulings). Mawlana Saaleh has been able to disperse his passion of Mughal history to others in America, particularly those of South-Asian descent. In this episode, he walks us through his life story, his pursuit of Islamic knowledge and how he came across the Mughal Empire. We also cover other topics such as the importance of mentorship and having the right teachers to progress one's education.
