It is tough being a student of knowledge whilst dealing with the modern world. So we talk to Ustadh Suved about how to seek ilm in today’s day and age, juggling the 9-5 work hustle in the process, differences between the traditional Islamic way of seeking knowledge vs. the university scene and how a layman Muslim can gain more rewards than The Sahaba.

Suved studies Commerce at University of Sydney, is a teacher of Hadith sciences. He is prominent in the Sydney MSA circles giving talks and lectures at Universities. Most importantly he is a dear friend of ours.
