Mawlana Dr. Mateen Khan

Mawlana Dr. Mateen Khan was born and raised in the Philadelphia area. He completed his medical degree from Temple University Medical School, and specialized in Emergency Medicine.

As he began practicing as an Emergency Medicine physician, Mawlana Dr. Mateen simultaneously enrolled in the prestigious seminary program at Darul Uloom Al-Madania in Buffalo, where he spent six years intensively studying core disciplines of the traditional Islamic sciences, such as Arabic, Tafsir (Quran Exegesis), Hadith (Prophetic Traditions), Fiqh (Jurisprudence), and other related subjects.

As the new branch of the seminary opened in Chatham, Ontario by the name of Darul Uloom Canada, he relocated to it and completed his graduation there, gaining Ijazas (authorizations) to teach the various subjects, most notably, the six authentic books of Hadith, namely, Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan at-Tirmidhi, Sunan an-Nasai, Sunan ibn Majah and Sunan Abu Dawud.
