About the Speaker:

Alimah Sobia Kamaluddin Ahmed was born and raised in the United States and received her BA in Sociology and Arabic and Islamic Civilization with double honors from the University of Chicago and Masters of Education from the University of Illinois. In 1999, she migrated to Lahore with her husband following the early tradition of rihla, or journeying for the sake of seeking divine and sacred knowledge. In Lahore, she pursued an intensive full-time study of the classical disciplines of Islamic learning, known as Dars Nizami, for four years. In 2003, she was formally certified as an Alimah and was awarded the Alimiyyah degree, certifying her to teach the disciplines of Qur’an, Tafsir, Hadith, Arabic Grammar & Linguistics, Beliefs & Creed, and Islamic Law & Legal Theory (Fiqh & Usul).

For the past ten years, she has been tirelessly teaching classical Islamic learning and guiding women on the spiritual path to become closer to Allah. To date, she has taught over one thousand women live and online and has graduated over 50 women as alimahs.

Her students have included college and university students, young professionals, mothers, and homemakers. She has lectured and taught at masjids, universities, institutions, and private residences in the Unites States, across the United Kingdom, and in Pakistan where she maintains her home with her husband and four children.

In 2005, she and her husband founded Zaynab Academy. In 2008, Zaynab Academy Online was founded becoming the first all-women’s online Islamic educational institute dedicated to classical Islamic learning and spirituality. To date, Zaynab Academy Online’s courses and programs have been attended by over one thousand students from over twenty countries across the world.
