Ustadh Rami Nsour was born in Amman, Jordan and moved to the United States at the age of 9. He was first introduced to the study of sacred knowledge while attending classes taught by shuyukh in the San Francisco Bay Area; notably, Shaykh Khatri bin Bayba, Shaykh Abdullah bin Ahmedna and Shaykh Hamza Yusuf. Studying at the hands of these inspirational shuyukh kindled his desire to further his studies of the Deen. With their encouragement, Ustadh Rami embarked on a journey to the West African country of Mauritania in 1998 where he became a full-time student of the sacred sciences for several years.
In Mauritania, he studied under the tutelage of some of the greatest scholars of our times such as his foremost teacher, Shaykh Murabit al Hajj bin Fahfu. He was also blessed to study with Murabit Muhammad al-Amin bin al-Shaykh, Murabit Ahmed Fal bin Ahmedna, Shaykh Abdullah bin Ahmedna, Shaykh Tahir ibn Murabit al Hajj and Shaykh Sa’d Bu among others. During the many years he spent in Mauritania, he studied at the School, or Mahdara, of Murabit Al Hajj. All of his lessons were one-on-one. This Mahdara is famous for producing some of the most learned scholars in history. Due to the rigors of its studies, this Mahdara attracts many serious students. Its academic make-up allows for the complete study of the Shari’ah by way of individual lessons with each scholar, followed by review of the lessons with seasoned students and finally, by witnessing the Deen come to life as the laws are implemented on a daily basis by all.
