He’s Arabian. Originally from Kuwait. But now he live in London. I love to listen his English lectures. He also has answered several of my question through his website. He is Yasser al-Habib, Shiite cleric who has exiled from his country and manage to get political asylum in UK. According to one of his disciple, he is a honest man and willing to serve the youngsters, listen to their problems and help to answer their questions.
He said (Yasser’s disciple) – Sheikh Yasser al-Habib was exiled because he has converted many Wahabi and Bakris (Sunni) to become Shia. What I know is he once had detained and jailed in charge of insulted Prophet’s wife and sahaba (companions) like Abu Bakr, Omar, and Aysha. I don’t give a damn about that and I don’t mind whether he’s opinion and views are quite radical. I just want to seek knowledge from many people, not only him. He has his own office in London, an organization called Khoddam Almahdi (servant of al-Mahdi) – consists Huseiniyya Sayyid al-Shohadaa, Hawza al-Askariyain, al-Menbar Media, Fadak TV, and The Shia Newspaper (Yasser al-Habib is the head of Shia Newspaper in London).
This is some information about him based on the answer given in his website :
Sheikh al-Habib has begun his Hawza (Shi’a Islamic) studies about fourteen years ago, after which he has been granted the honorary rank and title of “Allamah” by Ayatollah Sayed Sadiq al-Shirazi (May Allah prolong his life).
The Sheikh is currently studying Bahthul Kharij (graduation class) which is known as the top academic stage in Shi’a Islamic studies, as well as teaching the secondary level in Hawza studies known as al-Sutuhul ‘Aliyah (external).
I wish I could meet him personally one day. Inshallah.
