Sheikh Hussain Yee is the Founder and President of Al Khaadem. When he founded Al-Khaadem in 1981, he envisioned Al-Khaadem as a unique vehicle for sharing the universal values of Islam and helping all people regardless of creed.
Forty years on, Sheikh Hussain is highly popular for his simple yet insightful talks on the virtual international Islamic lecture circuit and media networks such as Discover Islam TV (Bahrain), Islam Channel London (UK), Peace TV (India), and IQRA TV (UK).
Sheikh Hussain brings a unique perspective to the art of da’wah. As a revert, Sheikh Hussain empathises with the challenges facing new Muslims as well as the trials of born Muslims. Born into a Buddhist family, Sheikh Hussain reverted to Islam in the late 1960s. He then studied hadith sciences at the leading Islamic University of Madinah, Saudi Arabia, under the tutelage of a great hadith scholar of the 20th century, Sheikh Muhammad Nasiruddin Al-Albani.
Since graduation, Sheikh Hussain worked in various global and local organisations to advocate for Islam and support new and born Muslims. Given his wide skillset in Islamic scholarship combined with experience in strategic management, advisory and consulting, Sheikh Hussain’s expertise is in demand worldwide. Currently, Sheikh Hussain sits on the Halal Advisory Committee for the Islamic Da’wah Council, The Philippines (a member of World Halal Council) and is a Syura council member for the Japan Halal Foundation. Prior to founding Al-Khaadem, he served as an Advisor for the Cambodian Islamic Refugee Organisation in Paris, France, as a Counsellor and Mubaligh Officer at PERKIM Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian agency for new reverts, and as the Director of Da’wah for the Islamic Center in Hong Kong.
