It is MDI Canada’s proud honour to be the first to announce that our long-time inspirational friend Shabir Ally has completed his PhD dissertation at the University of Toronto and has officially received his doctorate degree.
Dr. Ally has inspired an entire post-Deedat generation of da’ees (callers to Islam) and Muslim debaters. While Dr. Zakir Naik largely took up Sheikh Ahmed Deedat’s mantle in Asia, it is no exaggeration to say that Dr. Ally did the same for Muslims in North America. Widely respected by both Muslims and non-Muslims (including the many Christians and atheists that he has debated in his apologetics career which has spanned over 15 years), Dr. Ally is widely considered the leading Muslim apologist in the English-speaking world today (despite U.S. Immigration having prevented Dr. Ally’s entry into America in recent times.*)
MDI Canada congratulates Dr. Ally on this happy occasion and lifetime achievement. May the Almighty bless him with continued success in the path of Islam and may he continue to serve as an inspiration for Muslims worldwide.
* MDI Canada would like to use this occasion to call upon U.S. Immigration officials to immediately remove any and all restrictions that have been placed on Dr. Ally and to help facilitate his entry into America for future lectures, dialogues, and debates.
