Jamal Zarabozo was born in France to Spanish parents and embraced Islam in 1976 at the age of 16 in California. He subsequently taught himself Arabic in order to better access classical works. This led him to a fascination with the topic of hadith and its sciences, which he dedicated the next few years of his life studying. He moved to Boulder, Colorado in the mid-80s, where he had access to a group of du’aat who graduated from Imam Muhammad University in Riyadh and were pursuing graduate degrees at the University of Boulder. Additionally, he studied with Dr. Mustafa Azami, a world-renown scholar of hadith, who was living in Boulder for a few years. With all of their help and tutorship, along with his perseverance and dedication, he managed to achieve a level of scholarship that is rare to find in North America. He also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from UC Berkeley and a Master’s degree also in Economics from UC Davis. He received an honorific doctorate degree from the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America (AMJA) in 2015.

He translated many works like Fiqh as-Sunnah, Islamic Fatawa for Women, The Path to Paradise, The World of Jinn & Devils,Words of Remembrance & Words of Reminder, The Fiqh of Marriage, Marital Discord, Religious Extremism, among others. He also wrote several books like, The Fiqh of Friday PrayerFriday Prayer Khutbahs (2 Vol.), A Commentary on the Forty Hadith of an-Nawawi (3 Vol.), The Authority & Importance of the Sunnah, How to Approach the Qur’an, among others. He also founded and edited al-Basheer Magazine which ran for 8 years and at the time of its publication, was the leading and most academic journal of classical Islamic sciences. Shaykh Jamal has delivered several hundreds of lectures and given hundreds of classes throughout the United States as well as the United Kingdom.
