About Our Teachers

Shaykh Ashraf Muneeb

Dr. ashraf formally began his shari'a studies in Damascus in 1997, and graduated with honors from the Mahad al-Fath in 2003, as well as privately studied several books in methodology & Hanafi fiqh with Shaykh Hassan al-Hindi; Hanafi fiqh, hadith and hadith sciences with Shaykh Adnan Darwish; Hanafi fiqh with Shaykh Abdul Rahman Arjan; tenets of faith with Shaykh Mustafa al-Turkmani; hadith with Dr. Nureddin al-'Itr; and hadith sciences with Shaykh Bassam al-Hamzawi. Later in Amman, he completed studying inheritance law with Shaykh Ali Hani.

In 2006, he received his MA in Islamic Studies (Problems in Family Law for Muslims in the United States) with honors from Imam al-Ouzai, Beirut, and in 2008, his PhD with distinction in Islamic Studies (Effects of Family Law on Muslims in the United States). With his wife, Hedaya Hartford, he has co-authored Your Islamic Marriage Contract; a critical edition and commentary of Risala al-Birgivi in Arabic; and Birgivi's Manual Interpreted: Complete Fiqh of Menstruation & Related Issues in English.

Dr. Ashraf served as the Academic Director of the Qasid Institute for Classical Arabic in Amman from 2004-2007. He currently lives in Amman, where he is studying Hanafi fiqh with Shaykh Ahmad al-Jammal and teaching local courses. As the Dean of SunniPath Academy, Dr. Ashraf manages SunniPath faculty; implements the curriculum; sets academic policies; and establishes academic partnerships; all with the goal of fostering excellence in teaching and service.

Dr. Ashraf was recognized in 2010 as a certified Shariah auditor and advisor by the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI). This is the highest certificate given by AAOIFI, the most notable authority in the field of Islamic finance.

“I am so happy that I learned it with Shaykh Ashraf because he is a true scholar with authentic, reliable knowledge. He is extremely organized and very intelligent. It was very obvious that a lot of thought, effort, and time went into creating this course so that it would be easy for the students to understand this difficult science. In the live sessions, he constantly quizzed the students and checked their knowledge before proceeding to teach new material. He was very encouraging towards seeking knowledge for the sake of Allah and he, himself, serves as an example for all of us. I can't wait to take the follow-up course.”
—Naielah Ackbarali, Student, Damascus, Syria

“Dr Ashraf ensured that the live sessions and forums stayed on track by continually reminding us of the purposes and what types of questions can and cant be answered. Using a case study that flowed through the semester also helped to cement the understanding of the concepts.”
—Mohamed Elbotaty, Business Developer, Sydney, Australia
