Brother Talha was born and raised in Michigan and most recently was the Imam of the masjid in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, the same masjid where Mufti Kamani called home when he was younger. At the age of 16 he completed his memorization of the Quran in Buffalo, NY. After completing high school, he travelled to South Africa to major in Islamic studies at Darul Uloom Zakariyya. He returned to the U.S and took up the Imam position in Elizabethtown after completing the Alamiyyah program. His duties in Elizabethtown focused on programming for the youth including a variety of activities as well as instruction. While there Br. Talha also built strong relations with the interfaith community as well as the local government officials. He is married and has two daughters and enjoys traveling, playing basketball and working with the youth. MCWS looks forward to building further on the existing youth programs and taking advantage of Brother Talha’s strong foundations and background inshaAllah. Please join us in giving him a warm welcome to our community and make duaa for baraka in his position.
