Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips is a Jamaican Canadian Islamic Scholar who converted to Islam in the early seventies after journeying from Christianity to Communism. Shortly after his reversion to Islam, he embarked on another journey to the other side of the world seeking Islamic knowledge which took him to Saudi Arabia where he completed a BA in Madeenah, and an MA in Riyadh, then to the University of Wales, UK, where he completed a PhD in Islamic Theology in the early nineties.
After graduation, Dr Bilal became a teacher of Islamic studies for 10 years in an Islamic High School, Manaret Riyadh, and a lecturer of Arabic and Islamic studies in the American University in Dubai, UAE, for another 10 years. During his 10 years in the UAE, he also founded the Islamic Information Center in Dubai, and during his subsequent 6 years in Qatar he was the Islamic consultant for the Islamic Information wing of Sheikh Eed Charity in Doha and founder of the Islamic Studies Academy.
