Hadhrat Mufti Zubair Bayat (daamat barakaatuhu) is the founder and Ameer of Darul Ihsan Islamic Services Center and an inspirational leader who dedicates himself tirelessly to the service of the Ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

A fountainhead of Ilm, Hadhrat Mufti Zubair Bayat (daamat barakaatuhu) has been blessed with the special ability of presenting the teachings of Deenul Islam in an attractive and easy manner making it appealing to all, especially in the challenging times in which we live. Hadhrat Mufti Saheb (daamat barakaatuhu) is a Hafizul Quraan and completed his Aalim Fadhil and Ifta courses at the famous Darul Uloom Deoband, India and was fortunate in having studied under the Grand-Mufti of India Hadhrat Mufti Mahmood-ul-Hasan Gangohi (rahmatullah alayh). He thereafter occupied a post as a senior lecturer at Madrasah Arabia Islamia, Azaadville and also furthered his studies achieving a MA in Islamic Studies from Rand Afrikaans University. He has travelled extensively delivering talks and workshops covering a variety of subjects, written hundreds of articles and published several books. Due to his burning concern and desire to serve and unify the Muslim community at large, Hadhrat Mufti Saheb has been instrumental in many pioneering efforts establishing educational, welfare, social, economic, youth and community initiatives which has contributed immensely in preserving Muslim identity and creating an Islamic awakening both locally and abroad.

During and after his student days Mufti Saheb (daamat barakaatuhu) spent extended periods of time and maintained a formal relationship of Islaah (Bay’at) with Maseehul-Ummat Hadhratji Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullah alayh). Upon the demise of Hadhratji (rahmatullah alayh), Mufti Saheb took Bay’at on the hands of Arif Billah Hadhrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahmatullah alayh) from whom he has also received Khilafat. The Silsila (spiritual chain) of HadhratMufti Zubair Bayat (daamat barakaatuhu) links back through a series of authentic saints all the way to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) – view it here.

Through the Fadhal and Karam of Allah Ta’ala Hadhrat Mufti Zubair Bayat (daamat barakaatuhu) has been blessed with the Suhbat (company) and fond affection of many great Auliya of our times, to mention a few Hadhrat Maulana Qari Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi (rahmatullah alayh), Hadhrat Maulana Shah Muhammad Farooq Saheb (rahmatullah alayh), Hadhrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah alayh), Hadhrat Maulana Abdul Hafeez Makki Saheb (daamat barakaatuhu), Hadhrat Maulana Azizur Rahman Saheb (daamat barakaatuhu), Hadhrat Maulana Abdul Hameed Ishaq Saheb (daamat barakaatuhu) and many others.
