A Brief Introduction to Ustadh Sheikh Chad Earl……
Ustadh Chad Earl is a native Hoosier who converted to Islam in the 90’s, at the age of 15. Since then, he has always had a passion for studying Islam, focusing on internalizing the message and its practical application in daily life. In 2005, he traveled to Egypt where he began his Arabic studies while also studying Tajweed, Fiqh, Arabic Grammar, and memorizing portions of the Qur’an. All this was to lay the groundwork for his entrance into Al-Azhar University, at the College of Islamic and Arabic Studies, where he is finishing his bachelor’s degree in Islamic and Arabic Studies. He enjoys working with the youth, and has spent many years in the past doing so as a Sunday School teacher here in Indianapolis. He hopes to use his knowledge and personal experiences as a young Muslim in America to help benefit others and give back to the Indianapolis Community.
