haykh al-Hadith wa Tafsir, Hafiz, Mawlana Muhammad Saleem Nawab Falahi is a teacher and prolific speaker based in London where he is considered among the most senior scholars.

He is a pious, kind, calm, caring and generous person and deeply concerned for the ummah.

Shaykh has been teaching for over 27 years.

He previously served as a senior teacher of Hadith and Tafsir at Darul Uloom London for almost two decades.

It may not be an overstatement to state that the large majority of Alimat educated in London are either his students or studied under his students. His area of expertise is Quran and Hadith.

Shaykh is active in a lot of public services also. He delivers the Friday sermon at Harlow Islamic Centre and Tafsir lesson every Friday evening at Quwwatul Islam. The latter is a rare public opportunity to study the Quran under a master of the subject.
