This website is dedicated to providing resources for students of sacred Islamic knowledge. For now, it is limited to my few works. I hope to make it comprehensive when I finally get some time, in sha’ Allah.

About Me

My name is Aamir Bashir.  My original training was in Engineering. After completing an MS in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2002, I decided to pursue Islamic Studies. Initially, I undertook a five-year rigorous program in traditional Islamic studies (Dars-e-NIzami), during the course of which I acquired Shahadat al-ʿAlimiyyah (Certification of Scholarly Achievement), equivalent to a 4-year BA in Islamic & Arabic Studies, at Jamiʿa Ashrafia, Lahore. Later, I served as a lecturer of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Darul Uloom al-Madania, an Islamic seminary in Buffalo, NY. While there, I also completed an MA from International Institute of Islamic Thought & Civilization (ISTAC) at the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). In May 2014, I graduated from the MA Program in Islamic & Near Eastern Studies at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL). In Fall 2014, I started a PhD in Islamic Thought (NELC) at the University of Chicago. My research interests include Islamic legal and political thought, Muslim responses to modernity, Qur’an & Hadith Studies.

Here is my CV.
