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.
My name is Aamir Bashir. I am a a PhD candidate in Islamic Thought at the University of Chicago. Although originally trained in electrical engineering, I switched to Islamic studies in 2002. For the next 10 years, I was involved in theological Islamic studies, first as a student (shahadat al-‘alimiyya from Jami‘a Ashrafia, Lahore, and an MA in Islamic Studies from International Islamic University Malaysia), and then as a lecturer of Arabic & Islamic Studies at Darul Uloom al-Madania, Buffalo, NY. In 2012, I joined the secular academy starting with an MA in Islamic studies at Washington University in St. Louis. I have been at UChicago since 2014. My research interests include Islamic law, Islamic education, Islamic spirituality, and Muslim responses to modernity.
