Habib Kadhim Ja`far Muhammad al-Saqqaf currently teaches at the prestigious Islamic institute Dar al-Mustafa in Tarim where Al-Habib Umar bin Hafidh bin Salim serves as the director. As well, Habib Kadhim sits on the Council for Legal Verdicts at Dar al-Mustafa.

Born in Tarim, Hadramaut in 1967, Habib Kadhim studied the Qur’an and the major Islamic sacred sciences with eminent teachers at Abu Murayyim, a seminary renowned for Qur’anic literacy and memorization, and at the prestigious Ribat of Tarim. After graduating from these two institutions, he continued his studies at the feet of some of the most gifted scholars of Tarim who conferred upon him numerous ijazat.

Habib Kadhim left Tarim to register at the famous Ribat in the northern Yemeni city of Bayda. He was honored to have been a student of Al-Habib Muhammad b. Abdallah al-Haddar, al-Habib Ibrahim b. ‘Aqil b. Yahya and Al-Habib Zain b. Sumait.

Habib Kadhim would later return to Tarim where he continued his studies and took up the banner of calling to the way of Allah (Da’wah). He served as the director and lead instructor at the Ribat of Shihr for six years before transferring to the Ribat of Mukalla to occupy the post of principal and lead instructor for a further two years.

A highly-respected scholar, Habib Kadhim is considered an expert in many areas of the Islamic sacred sciences including jurisprudence (Fiqh), Prophetic biography (Sira), theology (‘Aqida), principles of jurisprudence (Usul) and in particular, hadith and its related sciences.

Adopting a unique oratory approach, Habib Kadhim specializes in educating men and women, young and elderly, about their responsibilities towards their Creator and their obligations to others.

Habib Kadhim has visited many Western countries in the last few years including the United Kingdom, Australia, Sweden and Denmark.
